Last December 6, 2021, Kapwa Ko Mahal Ko Foundation and the Philippine Academy of Family Physicians, Inc. (PAFP) signed a Memorandum of Agreement to collaborate regarding medical information dissemination and in assisting the poor and underprivileged Filipinos with their medical needs.
This partnership will kick-off under the regular activities of KKMK such as the (1) Sagot ni Dok segment which will be aired nationally every Saturday at 5AM on GMA Channel 7 and uploaded on KKMK social media; and (2) SNDLive - a 30 minute monthly Facebook Live for indigent and underprivileged audiences to have the opportunity to directly ask experts.
KKMK will promote PAFP’s advocacies and activities to help reach a larger audience through our tv program and online platforms.
With this MOA and our new partnership, we hope to help educate and medically assist more people together.
