Residents along Laguna Lake benefit from medical mission

Nearly a thousand residents of Brgy. Tadlac along Laguna Lake in Los BaƱos were recipients of IRRI's community health education (CHE) and medical mission in February 2013.

Counseling was provided the residents on nutrition, prevention of basic illnesses, child care, reproductive health among mothers, and other topics by volunteer health practitioners from the Army General Hospital of the Armed Forces of the Philippines in Taguig.

Free medicines and vitamins donated by the United Laboratories (UNILAB) and IRRI were given out. Gardenia, the largest bread bakery in the Philippines, also donated loaves of bread that were distributed by HCCRO to the families.

IRRI maintains this monthly CHE and medical mission as part of the fulfillment of its social responsibility, to contribute to wellness and well-being of its partners in the communities.
