It started at 1:00 PM and ended at 5:00 PM.Rev. Fr. Joey Tuazon, Parish Priest, has given his approval weeks before the use of the hall for this activity.VIDES Volunteers stationed themselves accordingly in order to accommodate their patients.


The following steps were taken for the Medical Mission proper:Step 1: Height Measurement Step 2: Weight Measurement Step 2a: Body Temperature for ChildrenStep 2b: Blood Pressure for MothersStep 3: Medical InterviewStep 4: Consultation with Doctors (Pagamutan)Step 5: Dispensary (Botika)Step 6: Distribution of Milk, Juices, and BreadOther activities included nailcutting and counseling. Due to the rain (and therefore lack of proper space), the haircutting session was cancelled. Volunteers' assistance was remarkably active and present.The volunteers of LIVE (Life Improvement through Volunteer Experience) headed by Atty. Sonia Em joined this activity. 

Prior to the medical check-up the kids were grouped by grade level and were handled by the volunteers of LIVE for the following sessions:a) input on health and hygieneb) catechesis on Pentecost and values formationc) distribution of school supplies / snacksThese activities were conducted on both sides of the Church.
