Our Story

Our Story

For more than 35 years, Dr. Jesus Ho spearheaded annual medical missions to different parts of the Philippines along with his wife, Dr. Priscilla Ho. It was work that was important to him in helping to create a legacy for his family. In 2016, before Dr. Jesus Ho passed away, he asked his family to dedicate a medical mission in his honor. In January 2018, Dr. Priscilla Ho and their daughters Jenny Ho-Vijungco and Jessica Ho-Scara, along with Jenny’s husband, Dr. Joseph Vijungco, followed through and made his request come to life.

Together with the Bisaya Medical Association, the City of Carcar and the Provincial Government of Cebu, they conducted a medical, surgical and dental mission in Carcar City, Cebu, Philippines. They treated more than 10,000 people and donated more than $15 million worth of equipment, supplies and medicines. Jenny Ho-Vijungco, the founder of Project J.O.Y., finally understands why Dr. Jesus Ho insisted that they plan this medical mission. Not only were they touched with the healing hands and hearts of all the missioners, they were overwhelmed by the numbers of sick people that stood in line for days for medical treatment. So to continue Dr. Jesus Ho’s legacy, Project J.O.Y. was created to fund ongoing medical missions to the country.

Our Mission

Project J.O.Y.’s mission is to adopt an underprivileged hospital in the Philippines and provide it with medical and surgical equipment as well as collaborating with local medical professionals to help the hospital become a leading medical center providing a critical resource to the community.

Our Goals

Our goal is to develop the first hospital we’ve selected into a major referral hospital where complicated medical and surgical cases can be treated successfully. Over time, by donating millions of dollars in medical and surgical equipment and supplies to the same hospital and educating medical professionals and staff yearly, the hospital will become self-sustainable and will be able to accept more challenging medical cases. This will enable the hospital to provide an array of health care services and medical needs that are not currently accessible in the community.

JOIN OUR JOURNEY

We hope we can inspire the next generation of doctors and nurses to volunteer their expertise and time to continue these life changing medical missions. We invite you to be the change, to be the hero, to be the hope that can bring JOY back into their lives.
