Fr. Dandi’s mission in the Philippines is healing bodies, souls

Fr. Dandi and the staff of the St. Joseph the Worker Mission to the sugarcane plantation workers in the Negros Occidental district of the Philippines offers medical care during a field mission to the neighboring Diocese of Kabankalan.

Each day, Father Donardo “Dandi” Bermejo asks God to “give me patients.”
That’s because most who come to the medical mission he founded for some of the poorest and most marginalized people in the Philippines wind up also returning to Christ.
“While they are being treated at the clinic, we always urge people to pray and to be active in the Church and go to Mass and to serve one another and to always be good to one another,” said Fr. Dandi, founding director of the St. Joseph the Worker Mission to the sugarcane planation workers.
