Dole Food Company Coordinates Medical Mission To The Philippines

Dole Food Company, Inc. (NYSE:DOLE) today announced that Dolefil, a Dole operating subsidiary in the Philippines, recently hosted the latest of three medical missions to the Philippines since 2007.

Coordinated in partnership with the Philippine Medical Society of Florida, Mahintana Foundation and the Mt. Matutum Health Care Foundation, the week-long mission provided medical and surgical care by ten doctor and six nurse team to residents of the provinces of South Cotabato, Sarangani and in General Santos City, Philippines.

The Dolefil missions have evolved to not only provide medical care in the Philippines, but to coordinate the treatment of patients with more complex needs in the United States. On a previous medical mission, Dolefil handled the U.S. travel, passport and visa requirements for two children who needed series of surgeries. They stayed in Florida for 11 months while recovering before returning home.

“Dole has a long and proud history of contributing to the communities where we operate around the world,” said David A. DeLorenzo, Dole’s President and CEO. “The efforts surrounding this latest mission to the Philippines represent some of the best in our people and are a testament to the partnerships and relationships we work hard to foster everywhere we work.”

"What we have with Dolefil is more than just a partnership but rather a friendship fostered by a common desire to help the community," said Dr. Francis Ong, head of the mission during a welcome dinner for the team.

Supplies for the mission were transported for delivery by Dolefil container vans ahead of the medical team along with hospital equipment being donated to public hospitals in the province.

Dole is the world’s largest producer and marketer of high-quality fresh fruit and fresh vegetables, and is the leading producer of organic bananas. Dole markets a growing line of packaged and frozen fruit and is a produce industry leader in nutrition education and research.
