At Axelum, we strongly believe that formal education is key to a brighter future. As such, we are committed to continuously providing educational opportunities to the people of Medina. We grant academic scholarships to deserving students and distribute books and other school supplies. On top of that, we donate knowledge centers and classrooms to promote a more conducive and enhanced learning environment.
Since 2007, we have sponsored more than 500 students enrolled in various schools in Medina, Gingoog City, Camiguin, Bukidnon, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Manila. To date, there are 25 graduates of this scholarship program who have elected to work in Axelum.
On another note, we realize the importance of direct access to proper healthcare. In 2020, we started the construction of the San Isidro Polymedic General Hospital (SIPGH) located in Brgy. San Luis, Gingoog City. Scheduled to be completed by end-2022, this secondary-level hospital will feature 100 patient beds, extended laboratory diagnostic services, hemodialysis center, CT scan and intensive care unit. SIPGH will be managed by the renowned Cagayan de Oro Polymedic Medical Group complemented by a roster of approximately 100 doctors , nurses and support staff. SIPGH will primarily cater to the health needs of community residents particularly indigent patients.
To foster sustainable livelihood, we capitalize on the agricultural potential of our area by maintaining organic demo farms where local farmers are trained to seed and grow a variety of fruits and vegetable crops such as citronella plants, rice, papaya, lettuce and bananas, among others. In addition, we extend them financial support on poultry and hog raising ventures. After which, local farmers have the option to sell their harvests and livestock to us or other prospective buyers.
Needless to say, we understand the importance of strengthening one’s spiritual and moral being. Aside from participating in religious gatherings and events, every Holy Week, we help the Municipality of Medina stage the ‘Hinuklog’ or Passion of Christ play, to encourage people to deepen their faith and remind them of the greatest sacrifice made for the salvation of mankind.
