The capability of the Burn Unit of the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) to attend to burn victims has been enhanced  by the donation  of an expensive machine by Davao del Norte Second District Representative Antonio “Tonyboy” Floirendo.


Floirendo used his own money to buy the state-of-the-art P2.9 million Humeca Meek Graft Machine and Dermatomein.

The machine, turned over to the government regional hospital in Davao City on March 26, was sought by the Junior Chamber International Kadayawan’s for its flagship project “Lamdag sa Kabataan Tugon ng Kadayawan. ”

The project was started by JCI Kadayawan in 2016 under its former president Cathy Binag.

The machine, the first of its kind in the Philippines, is very effective because the affected burn wounds close twice as fast and twice in decrease in infections as compared to other machines.
