Maharlika Charity Foundation, Inc.


"Thousands of poor patients had been treated free by Davao's best doctors under Maharlika's charity programs…"

SINCE THE MAHARLIKA CHARITY FOUNDATION was founded in May 1973, thousands of poor, disabled patients, burn victims, those suffering from eye defects, congenital anomalies, and other diseases were treated free by some of Davao's best medical and dental specialists.

The Foundation, supported wholly by donations from individual benefactors, companies, fund-raising drives, government charity agencies, foreign contributions, and even token monies from the ordinary people, is now a modern medical facility; and manned by well trained volunteer medical team. It has its own building, the Maharlika Center, at J.P. Cabaguio Avenue, Davao City.

Forging partnerships between government, business and non-governmental sectors, Maharlika provides free surgical services to the poor and the needy. Its volunteer doctors, dentists and nurses have participated in several surgical outreach missions in the remotest areas of Mindanao.
