A Pictorial Medical Mission

“Libreng Paggamot, Libreng Bunot sa Tatalon”
“Free Medicine, Free Tooth Extraction...”

Over 300 patients answered the call.19 doctors, 3 pharmacists, 21 assistants and 2 priests happily spent their Sunday afternoon, November 23, 1997, performing corporal works of mercy.  There were 3 ophthalmologists, 3 dermatologists, 2 pediatricians, 3 oral-maxillo facial surgeons, 1 general practitioner / surgeon, 1 obst.-gynecologist, 1 urologist and 5 dentists.  It was a beautiful success to be repeated in a few months.  Providential help was truly visible.  For instance, two days before the mission, while still in need of some medicines, one of the organizers walked in one of our dentist’s clinic, nervously asking where could we find a generous pharmacist.  The good Lord heard the call: the patient on the dental chair replied that his parents were the owners of a large pharmaceutical company!
