Note 1. Does not include some of the eyeglass patients, and some that came without forms. Total patients probably closer to 500.
We had a wonderful time in Bagulin, and thank the people of Bagulin, Suyo Bible Baptist Church, New Hope Baptist Church and others for being such generous hosts.
Note 2: Eyeglass patients as of now. The Eyecare van will be staying on site for one more day.
Bagulin Team with Gift Housebrooms from Hosts
Busy in Medical and Pharmacy Section.
The Bagulin trip has been rescheduled for the 5th of December. We apologize for those it may inconvenience. The date change was based partly on the schedules of our volunteer medical professionals, and part on the schedule of EyeGlass Bank. EyeGlass Bank (a DOH program) was able to come during the weekend of the 5th, so we are adjusting ourselves to their schedule.
It is a very busy time for all (the Christmas Holiday Season). However, we pray that you will find joy in celebrating the birth of Christ. We also pray that you will find it in your hearts to celebrate by sharing God’s love with those in need. That way you can have a truly blessed “Maligayang Pasko!!”
