For the Children of Planas
Contributed by: Rosanna Javier, Operation Blessing Volunteer Writer
Operation Blessing was just at the right place at the right time. One year and three month old Kaizen Panuncillon was burning with high fever when his grandmother Leticia brought him to Operation Blessing’s medical mission in Planas, Guihulngan City last February 27, 2012. While falling in line for their turn to register, baby Kaizen threw fits.
OB medical team immediately attended to Kaizen. His temperature had shoot up to 40 degree Celsius. Grandmother Leticia was turning more panicky by the minute. To bring the fever down OB doused Kaizen with water. The attending physician’s diagnosis – benign febrile convulsions. OB rushed Kaizen to the Villegas Memorial Hospital to stabilize his condition. Jacklyn, Kaizen’s tearful mom, who went to the hospital in haste, had to be appeased. Kaizen’s fever had subsided and lab tests are now being made to find the cause or infection that triggered the baby’s fever and seizures.
Back at the mission site, Perla Milmao was busy cooking for OB feeding program. Operation Blessing had been feeding her three year old twins Ronel and Ranel for three days already and Perla would like to somehow give back. Her twins were the first beneficiaries in the medical mission. The forty year old mother of eleven children is thankful for all the help she is getting from OB. Today Perla and her husband Richard are going to build a new house made of bamboo to replace their rundown house. They are slowly getting back on their feet again
Operation Blessing spread hope and cheers to around a hundred children in Planas. The children enjoyed dancing to “The Greatest Commandment” choreographed by OB. Snacks and soaps were also given to the children. It was a joy seeing the children earnestly pray.
One hundred nineteen children were medically attended to, among them are forty two undernourished children who are also recipients of the Operation Blessing in Planas.
