Our Achievements
Your donations at work...
Since its founding, the Foundation has contributed $7 million to develop and maintain the health-care services provided. Moreover, the Foundation continues to provide support for social distress in the community through a total investment of $200,000. All these achievements were made possible through the generosity of Foundation donors, partners, sponsors, and volunteers. They all play essential roles in the development and improvement of health-care services and medical care offered to the MRC's population.
