Medical Care


"The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation has helped me to gain confidence. It will help me to be more outstanding. But first of all I need to find God. With the MMFF I will achieve my goals. The MMFF will help me to be obedient, honest and independent. The MMFF will create a brighter tomorrow for me. The MMFF will help me to excel and have the potential to maximize in what I do. I believe it will help me to do Godly good. The Foundation will help me to know God and it means I will succeed in my work."
