by Cpt Emmanuel R Garcia

Camp Apolinario, Panacan, Davao City (23 February) -- Mellow Touch 94.7 in partnership with soldiers from 10th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army conducted a one-day medical and dental mission in Davao City Sunday.

The medical mission which was held at the Fortune Executive Homes plaza benefitted a total of 46 families numbering 192 individuals.

Maj. Gen Carlos Holganza, commander of the army's 10th Infantry Division lauded the humanitarian efforts of Mellow Touch as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) together with the Civil Military Operations (CMO) activity of government troops. "The partnership of our soldiers with private entities particularly the media and other civic organizations is a confirmation of our enduring pledge to provide much needed services to our people. The people and all organizations which made the medical and dental mission successful deserve our praise." Holganza said.

Medical and dental missions are periodic activities of soldiers nationwide in partnership and cooperation with different local government units, Non-government Organizations and Peoples' Organization to provide basic medical services to the people.

Several unexploded IEDs were also recovered by government troops in different parts of region 11 in 2009.
