Medical mission takes recess in Castañeda

By on February 14, 2018

The last leg of a series of Medical Mission in some municipalities was held at Alfonso Castañeda on February 9, bringing PLGU services to the people without going to the capital town of Bayombong.

The activity provided the usual services given in the past medical missions such as medical consultation, check-ups with free medicines, dental care, and circumcision. Blankets were distributed to senior citizens. Wheelchairs, canes and crutches were given to PWDs and senior citizens pre-evaluated by the PSWDO. The different barangays of Alfonso Castañeda and the host school received collapsible tents from the provincial government.

The San Francisco Lions Club International, through the Nueva Vizcaya Lions Club and the Provincial Government, had also brought its program on eye check-ups and donation of eyeglasses to recipients.

Governor Carlos M. Padilla, Vice Governor Epifanio LD. Galima Jr., and other officials also inspected the road network projects which was implemented during the term of former Governor Ruth R. Padilla.

“These road projects will connect you to Dupax del Sur. It may not be finished in a short period time but the important thing is, it has been started. And time will come, you will not pass through Nueva Ecija just to get to the Capitol,” Padilla said. #bg
