This clinic is currently located inside the new Mission Emanuel Medical Center in Cielo. A memorial to Mary Budd, this facility carries on the compassionate work of its namesake. The clinic provides consultations to an average of 50 children and their families weekly. The clinic is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:30 to 12:30. Consultations are given for 50 pesos (less than $1.50) and medicines that have been prescribed by the doctor are provided for 5 to 10 pesos a piece (about $0.15 to $0.30).
Common ailments treated include cough, colds, dehydration, diarrhea, flu, fungal infections, and parasites among others. In addition to treating illnesses, the clinic offers physicals and well baby exams to prevent malnutrition and sickness.
