With the current political climate, many Filipinos abroad are feeling hopeless for the Philippines. They’d rather stay abroad and, if possible, migrate with their family, believing that a better life awaits them in a foreign country.

Not Dr. Cris Enriquez.

Recognized as the only medical doctor in the world who trained and specialized in four different medical specialties, Dr. Cris decided to move back to the Philippines after living and practicing medicine in the US for 50 years. He started Rapha Health Institute, a medical practice that combines western, alternative and complementary medicine to prevent and reverse diseases, and authored several books on health and other subjects. Now, he’s focusing his attentions to helping Filipinos find opportunities in the Philippines so they can have long, prosperous lives.

Dr. Cris’ dream for the Philippines

“My dream for this country is for all the Filipinos who are working in other countries to come back because there are other opportunities in our country. You don’t even have to think hard. You just have to look for them and the way you look for them is to know what your purpose is. Know what you want to do, what your passion is.”
