Who We Are

About Us

Mercury Drug Foundation, Inc. (MDFI) is a private, non-stock, non-profit organization, organized and registered with the Securities & Exchange Commission in 1983, under the name Mercury Group Foundation, Inc. The company name was changed to Mercury Drug Foundation, Inc. in 1990.


MDFI traces its roots from the social responsibility initiatives of Mercury Drug, as a way of giving back to the people for their loyal support through the years. At the very core of this effort lies a strong sense of compassion inspired by the commitment to make a meaningful difference, beyond pharmaceutical retailing, in the communities where Mercury Drug operates.


MDFI is registered as a social welfare and development agency under the Department of Social Welfare and Development of the Philippines, accredited by the Philippine Council for NGO Certification, Inc. and certified as a donee institution by the Bureau of Internal Revenue of the Philippines.


Led by its president, Vivian Que Azcona, the MDFI Board of Trustees and Management Team, together with thousands of volunteers, seek to carry on the service mandate of MDFI's founder, Dr. Mariano Que, to help the needy and less privileged.


We aspire to promote the health and well-being of Filipinos by contributing ways and means to help reduce the incidence of diseases.


We partner with private and government organizations in establishing, aiding and maintaining community-based programs that will improve, increase, expand, advance or uplift the general health and well-being of the poor, underserved or marginalized members of society.


We seek to build the country’s pool of science- and technology-minded professionals by providing scholarship grants to poor but deserving students, academic recognition to students excelling in science and mathematics, and financial assistance to other endeavors that will inspire, nurture and promote excellence in education.


We provide relief, aid and other resources to alleviate the plight of those in dire need of help due to disease, calamities or disasters, to facilitate their recovery and assist in the rebuilding of their lives.
