At present Physicians for Peace Philippines continuess to visit areas in the country needing their services on prostheses and mobility devices through their Walking Free and Beyond Program, implement their Save the Sight of children in different Public Elementary Schools through their Seeing Clearly Program, and conduct surgeries in areas where they are invited and where surgical facilities are appropriate through their Multi-Specialty and Surgery Program.
