GETAFE- Some 300 residents from the municipality of Getafe in Bohol benefited from medical mission conducted by Pamayanang Handa (PH) Cares on Thursday, Nov. 10.
Residents were gathered at the town gymnasium for the free medical services. Medical practitioners from the municipal health office conducted a free consultation, check-up and provided medicines, vitamins to the attendees.
One beneficiary Reynaldo Arsenio Jr, 29, a resident of Alumar Island, who could not walk for 29 years, received a new wheelchair and vitamins.
Reynaldo Arsenio Sr thanked PH Cares and Rotary Club of Pasay Cyber City for providing the services and medicines because he could not buy a wheelchair for his son as the economic condition in the country further crunched.
“Dako kaayo ang akong pasalamat sa wheelchair ug tambal para sa akong anak kay dako kini ikatabang,” he said.
Elmer Francis “Jun” Pasion, chairman of PH Cares, said there will be more scheduled medical missions in the province.
“Daghan ang mingtambong sa atong medical mission ug na-accomodate silang tanan. Naa pay naka-schedule nga medical mission diri,” said Pasion.
The event was also attended by Getafe Mayor Cary Camacho, former youth leader and Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) administrator Benjie Oliva, board member Jamie Villamor and Rep. Vanessa Aumentado.
Camacho expressed gratitude to the PH Cares and Rotary Club of Pasay Cyber City
for delivering the much-needed services that benefitted the people of Getafe.
Aumentado said the medical mission is giving hope to residents.
