Medical Mission in Sofrino Española
[Credits: palawan-news ] The native tribe in Barangay Pulot

Going into a hospital from the mountain barangays costs money and usually people from these areas mostly jump into conclusion of not going if the diseases aren't serious enough, making it worse scenarios.

There are health centers in every Barangays but not all of the staff have experience and are exposed to different kinds of illnesses. Some don't have monthly scheduled visits from doctors. As a result, the cases of illnesses increase without being treated.

Medication is needed especially to the places far from the cities. The newborn babies to the olders must have a proper check ups to ensure that they are healthy and get proper medications.

A Medical Mission happened in Sityo Maribong, Barangay Pulot Interior, Sofrino on Monday March 1. It was organized with the 1st Palawan Provincial Mobile Force Company (1st PPMFC) supported and helped by the Local Government Unit (LGU's) and different stakeholders.

The 1st Palawan Mobile Force Company (1st PPMFC) aims to reach out and give medical services in mountain barangays including native tribes in Palawan and to inform the people that the government cares for their health.

Among the residents the adults and children received different kinds of services such as circumcision, free check up and medicines.

March is a Women's Month and to celebrate this, the women in the tribes was has been shared on the importance pf Family planning along with the advantages of using methods.

The leader of the 1st PPMFC, P/Lt. Col. Eldie Bantal said on the palawan-news interview "Nagpapasalamat tayo sa mga stakeholders natin na laging tumutulong sa atin at isa sa mga pangarap natin at hangarin ay abutin ang mga katutubo ng ganitong klaseng mga serbisyo gaya ng pagbibigay ng gamot at pagbibigay ng kaalaman sa mga lider ng pamilya para mapagtibay ang isang pamilyang katutubo. Kailangang maramdaman nila na ang gobyerno ay malapit sa kanila".

He also added that "Isa pa, part din ito ng community retool natin, dahil alam natin na mas malaki ang chance ng recruitment sa mga ganito ng mga makakaliwang grupo sa mga komunidad na sobrang malayo, kaya nais nating maabot ang iba pang community sa ating mga malalayong lugar dito,".

The locals are thankful for the medical mission that was held and offered. They are looking forward for medical mission in their areaa in upcoming months.

Barangay Captain, Jessie Galang extended his appreciation for the oraganization that come up with helped this event possible.

"Sa LGU, sa 1st PPMFC, at sa stakeholders, nagpapasalamat kami sa medical mission na ito, dahil kung sa amin lamang po sa barangay, nagagawa naman namin ito pero mahirap sa ngayon, kaya malaking bagay na naabot ang community na ito. At tayo naman sa barangay ay maayos naman ang komunidad na ito. Sa mga medical mission ng mga private o government health mission ay lagi itong napupuntahan," Galang said.

We cannot stripped the fact that the spread of the corona virus has given us another step of taking precautionary health measure in our daily lives. Medical mission are the only hopes from the people that cannot go to the hospital clinic for check ups.
