As early as 8 am, Operation Blessing Philippines, in partnership with JAC Liner Inc. started the second day of Bolinao medical mission held at Brgy. Lucero, Santiago Island.
Many came to see the doctors and dentists from Manila. In spite of the hot weather, all lined up waiting for their turn to be accommodated for free medical, dental and eye check-up.
Leonarda Cayanon, 79, was the firt person to line up and avail the free check-up in the barangay.
“Nanay, bakit po ang aga niyo? Kayo po unang una sa pila.” [Mother, why are you so early? You are the first person in the line.], an OB staff asked.
“Para ako ang mauna. Para hindi maraming tao. Para makauwi ako kaagad,” Nanay Leonarda answered. When asked about her condition, she mentioned her poor eyesight and rheumatism.
Nanay Leonarda happily received free medical check-up as well as medicines and vitamins. Her joy was even doubled when told that her reading glasses will be delivered to her home.
