Rotary Club conducts gift giving, medical mission to Aeta community

by Oliver Baccay

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Jan. 3 (PIA) –- The Rotary Club of Tugeuagarao-Rainbow, in partnership with City Health Office (CHO), Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and other private sectors, has conducted gift giving to Aeta community at Penablanca, Cagayan.

Dr. James Guzman, city health officer and a member of the club, said Aeta communities are already part of their outreach areas in their civic activities as they see them as underprivileged needing help from various organizations.

He said they have been conducting gift giving, medical mission and livelihood activities in the area for seven years already and they are glad that the community is already doing good.

The group, with some volunteer youths and other partner organizations, distributed food and non food items, and examined the health situation of 31 families.

Guzman and his wife, who is also a medical doctor, gave some medicines to sick Aetas and vitamins to children.

The group was glad seeing that the community has already learned to establish their garden within their compound and majority of the children are going to school regularly.

“Unlike before, the Aetas have already adapted to the life in the lowland. They are now living as how other people are doing here and they are also receiving similar benefits being given by the government and private organizations to the residents here,” Guzman said.

Marita Mondejar, the most senior member of the community, expressed her gratitude to the group that has been helping them in many ways. She acknowledged the assistance of the group that have played vital role in the transformation of their lives. (TCB/OTB/PIA-2)
