Second medical mission held in local barangay

The second medical mission and community health education activity for 2013 was held at Barangay San Antonio in Los BaƱos, Laguna, on 25 April.

About a thousand residents, mostly persons with disabilities (PWD),  infants, and children, came to receive free check-ups, medicines, vitamins, and health counseling.

Most of the medicines given away were donated by the United Laboratories (UNILAB) or funded by IRRI.

Gardenia Bakeries Philippines, Inc., also donated loaves of bread in various flavors that were distributed to patients and PWDs.

Three medical doctors from the Army General Hospital in Taguig City came for the mission, which was requested by PWDs of Barangay San Antonio from barangay officials.

The activity was organized by IRRI's Host Country and Community Relations Office.
