CRIADOS, which means 'servant' in Spanish, is a non-profit organization founded by medical students of Davao Medical School Foundation, Inc. in 2006. With their motto of "ubicomque homo est, ibi benefici locus est", 'whenever there is a man, there is a place for service' in Latin, they have been providing basic health services through medical missions in far flung and marginalized communities throughout Mindanao while also serving as a venue for molding DMSF medical students' skills and volunteerism.
