Gala Cancellation & COVID-19 Relief
We bring you greetings from FOCOS and hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe and healthy. We are sure that the pandemic has affected you in many ways and we continue to hope for the best as we follow the guidelines and protocols announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Government. We have also instituted various policies and protocols to ensure the optimal safety of our patients and staff at the FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital.
Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and restriction imposed by the government we wish to inform you, our cherished donors, patrons and supporters that the Annual Fundraising Dinner originally scheduled for Saturday, May 30th 2020 has been postponed. As soon as circumstances permit FOCOS would duly renew its invitations to you our most valued sponsors and count on the generosity of your donations and pledges. We extent our heartfelt thanks to our sponsors who have already given towards 2020 gala and want to assure them that such funds will go towards the treatment of children in need of complex surgeries. Reports will be sent accordingly.
The current pandemic has affected the children at FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital through loss of critical funding and our ability to provide more necessary surgeries. As you know, our patients are some of the most vulnerable and are at a higher risk of complications in the face of this COVID-19 disease. They face the challenge of life-threatening conditions and still need our help. Even in these most trying times, we remain committed to providing musculoskeletal care to the population. We know that this is a challenging time and there are many unknowns, but our patients do not have the luxury of waiting for the unknown.
