Mayor Carlo Rabat extended his cordial comforts to the patients who had been beneficiaries of his HANDOG Program, the second Surgical Mission with Medlend Foundation Inc. at Davao Oriental Provincial Medical Center (DOPMC) the past week.

Bannering his value for wellness and health with the theme “Baskog nga Panglawas sa Matag Malipayong Pamilya”, the Mission successfully conducted 34 major operations in collaboration with the DOPMC, the Provincial Government of Davao Oriental headed by Governor Nelson Dayanghirang and the City Health Office headed by Dr. Ben Hur Catbagan.

The previous visit of Medlend Foundation in the City of Mati upon the invitation of Mayor Carlo last January 2015 was able to hold with flying colors30 major operations to the province-wide beneficiaries. Becoming intimately involved with the mission, the Medlend passionately returned providing more opportune time and making themselves more available.

More cognizant of the resources and the means that are available for use in the missionary efforts of some generous partners, Mayor Carlo vowed to ensure wellness for his constituents. Mission programs are among the means to this end.
