AGDANGAN, Quezon - The "Lingap sa Mamamayan, Libreng Gamutan" Medical Mission has resumed its operations in the province of Quezon, bringing vital healthcare services directly to underserved communities. This dedicated team of healthcare professionals aims to provide essential medical assistance and support to those in need.

Spearheaded by the Quezon provincial government under Governor Angelina Helen Tan, the "Lingap sa Mamamayan, Libreng Gamutan" program kicked off in Agdangan on February 3rd, followed by Padre Burgos on February 4th.



Governor Tan, along with Vice Governor Anacleto Alcala III, Cong. Reynan Arrogancia, Provincial SK President Jackylyn de Lemos, and Agdangan Mayor Rhadam Aguilar, graced the events, demonstrating their strong support for the initiative.

The mission gives 2,238 beneficiaries access to free medical services and medicines. These free treatments encompass a wide range of services: medical check-ups, dental extractions, minor surgeries, eye check-ups, ultrasounds, X-rays, ECGs, blood sugar tests, urinalysis, complete blood counts, circumcisions, pneumococcal and 23 other vaccinations, lipid profile analyses, and even HIV testing.

The governor doctor expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the Department of Health, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, and the private doctors who volunteered their time and expertise.

She emphasized the program's ongoing care model: "This is not just a one-time mission. We ensure continuity of care for those identified with serious illnesses, referring them to specialists and monitoring their progress until they receive the necessary treatment."

"This is what sets our Serbisyong Tunay at program apart," Governor Tan declared. "We ensure our medical missions have a lasting impact, continuously serving every citizen of Quezon."

Residents can expect the program to continue its journey across the province in the coming weeks, bringing free medical care to every citizen of Quezon.

Concurrently with the medical mission, the provincial government of Quezon also hosted a Fisherfolk and Women's Consultation, focusing on agricultural and livelihood services for women.

This event saw the participation of 200 members of the 4K Federation, 200 fishermen, and 50 members of KALIPI, further strengthening their respective organizations.

The consultation culminated in a ceremonial turnover of new equipment, including seedlings for women and engines for fishermen, aimed at boosting their economic opportunities and livelihoods.
