Free medical, dental mission benefits 350 households in Butuan City

Butuan City (22 March) -- At least 350 households in Barangay Ong Yui in this city benefitted from the free medical and dental mission conducted on Saturday by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)-Caraga region in coordination with other stakeholders.

The beneficiaries were among the victims of the big fire that gutted some 600 houses in the same barangay recently.

The humanitarian mission was also participated in by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) led by Regional Director Abner Caga, Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), Philippine Army, City Health Office of Butuan, DXBR-Radyo Bombo and Philippine News Agency.

Aside from medical and dental consultation, the beneficiaries also received free medicines.

The PDEA and its partners also distributed sardines, noodles and clothing to hundreds of fire victims from Barangay Ong Yui and Barangay Obrero. The two barangays were hit successively by big fire last Tuesday and Wednesday, causing the death of four persons and destruction of millions of pesos worth of property.

PDEA Regional Director Joey Quiriones said the humanitarian medical and dental program is their continuing project to bring the government closer to the people, especially to the needy ones.

City Mayor Democrito Plaza II lauded the humanitarian effort of the PDEA and other stakeholders who participated in the free medical and dental mission. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
