In response to the present national crisis caused by the rising number of dengue cases in the National Capital Region (NCR), the Inner Wheel Club of Rizal Sunrise provided a small-scale emergency assistance to the needing sick public in three (3) selected public hospitals in the NCR severely affected by dengue. 

The IWCRS team led by President Bobbie Jacinto paid a courtesy call on the Mayor of Manila, The Honourable Francisco M. Domagoso, on 25 September 2019, at 5:30 p.m., held at the Office of the Mayor, Manila City Hall. It was immediately followed by the official handover to Mayor Domagoso of the IWCRS' donations of 300 bags of dextrose (plain NSS 1 litre Euromed) and 300 pieces of macrosets (infusion prime media), with Hospital of Manila Medical Centre (a government hospital) as its main beneficiary.  The handover was witnessed by the Medical Director of Hospital of Manila, Dr. Rachael S. Mariñas, together with some of her medical staff as well as by Mr. Cesar Chavez, Manila Mayor Chief of Staff. 

Manila Mayor Domagoso expressed his deep appreciation to the donations extended by IWCRS. Not only it was very timely but it would somehow help the Manila LGU in its efforts to help its constituents affected by Dengue. 

Ms. Miriam Bernardo of IWCRS took the lead in organizing and coordinating the visit with the Office of the Manila Mayor and that of the Hospital of Manila Medical Centre.
