Medical and counseling mission held for PWDs

IRRI's Partnerships Office conducted another medical mission and counseling on 6 November 2013, this time for persons with disabilities (PWDs) and their families at the Batong Malake covered court in Los BaƱos.

The Civic Action team of physicians and nurses from the Army General Hospital, led by Major Mary Agnes Motril, MD, provided diagnosis and health counseling. Medicines were given out for free from donations facilitated by Stella Bouman, wife of GRiSP Director Bas Bouman.

Gardenia also donated loaves of bread for distribution to the families.

The monthly community medical and health counseling mission is part of IRRI's social responsibility program.
