The Medical Mission 2022 was successfully carried out by the local government unit of Salvador, Lanao del Norte, in partnership with volunteers from Service Inc, Amai Pakpak Medical Center, and the 5th Mechanized (Kaagapay) Battalion.

The activity is part of the municipality’s 62nd Founding Anniversary and 36th Araw ng Salvador, which will be held at its Municipal Covered Court on January 12, 2022, with the theme “Kapit-bisig ay Kailangan para Sa kahusayan, Kaunlaran at Kaligtasan ng ating Bayan: Sandigan ng Matatag na Bayan.”

The Medical Mission 2022 is focused at assisting those who are in need yet unable to access basic health services. The activity was also part of their pre-anniversary program, which helped an estimated 600 people who took advantage of free medical consultations, reading glasses distribution for senior residents, operation “tuli” (circumcision), children’s slippers distribution, and a free haircut.

In addition, the program included a blood donation activity, which was also attended by Kaagapay troopers and other volunteer donors from the municipality. The exercise was carried out in accordance with the provincial IATF’s established health guidelines.

Dr. Rufaidah-Pharmanisa Boriongan, OIC-RHU of Salvador expressed her gratitude to all stakeholders involved, particularly the Army’s 51st Mechanized Infantry Company under the Kaagapay Battalion, for their active participation and support in the advocacy program beneficial to their communities, particularly during these trying times.
