Medical and Dental Mission: Bright Smiles and Cheerful Hearts

2nd April 2019

All smiles and happy hearts were seen as the crowd of almost 200 attendees from about 120 families from nearby barangays around CFA drifted away, as we reached the culmination of our Medical and Dental Mission. This humanitarian event was headed by our very own Marketing Department led by Ms. Mary Ann Crisostomo and our Company Nurse Ms. Gerlie Jimenez, RN with the Chevalier Family Associates (CFLA) on December 2, 2018.
This activity was part of our aim to give back to our neighbors. Through the generous hearts of our volunteer medical practitioners, namely: Dr. Benedict Lazatin (Cardiologist), Dr. Anita Mandal with the group of doctors from the Philippine Academy of Family Physicians, Angeles City Chapter and the volunteer dentists Dr. Cyril Yatco, Dr. Wynnefreda Bombarda with her son and dental assistant Wesley Bombarda; we were able to provide free medical and dental check-ups and ECG, to the residents of the Barangays in Santa Mesa, Manila.



 

Bro. Primitivo Danao, MSC giving the talk on HIV awareness.

In order to make our participants more aware of taking care of their health, Bro. Primitivo P. Danao of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (MSC) congregation, delivered a lecture on HIV awareness. Ms. E. F. (name withheld) followed with her testimonial wherein she shared that being positive with HIV has not prevented her from living a normal life. She remains gracious and thankful to our Lord despite her condition. We look forward to having more of this noble mission in the future, making more people smile brightly, and bringing out cheers in their hearts.
