Augustinian Defenders of the Rights of the Poor (A.D.R.O.P.) partnered with Methodist Hospital Foundation in a Walk for Change, Saturday, June 2, 2018 to raise awareness about the A.D.R.O.P. Unity Clinic. The walkers began with a prayer at our Shrine, the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia, and ended at Methodist Hospital to join the health fair of free screenings and good food. The event raised approximately $3500.00 which will provide primary healthcare services to members of the South Philadelphia community who cannot afford physician services and are not eligible for government assistance.
