In 1991, the tenth General Chapter of the Medical Mission Sisters gave the impetus to deepen our understanding of the ecological dimension of healing. This led us to see the connection between health, the sustainability of Earth itself and the health of humans.

In those times a dream was conceived by the sisters to have a place where the elderly sisters could stay and live a simple eco-friendly life-style.

On the 80th Foundation Day a two hectare arid and barren land located at Barangay Capulaan, Villasis, Pangasinan was donated to the sisters.

There were barely any tree nor crops within the farming premises when HEAL was established. In 2009, there were only dots and splotches of green as new seedlings, herbs and crops were planted

This gave way to the realization of the dream and  to respond to God’s invitation to join and with each other to bring new life to the land.

Through the initiatives of the sisters, generosity of friends and benefactors, and initial funding from Vrienden (fundraising group for MMS in the Netherlands) and the inspiration from CELL, HEAL was established in 2006.

Now, HEAL is a learning center for ecological and alternative living. The vision of the beginning has expanded. Based on the New Story of Creation all kinds of programs and activities are offered.

After just a few years, the foliage grew. Greenery abound! So did other colors…

Over the past years HEAL has become a place of hope and new life, of healing the Earth and reclaiming our stance as co-creators of God’s creation.

From here many have found the vision, the skills and the inspiration to be of service to the healing of our Mother Earth and her preservation for future generations of life.

Now, HEAL is a garden of Eden, full of vegetables and trees, where fowl and animals thrive and one can come for rest and enjoyment of God’s creation, and find inner peace and joy.
