Bagong Negros availed free health services in medical mission of the Davao del Sur Provincial Hospital
Hundreds of residents from the remote barangay in Kiblawan, namely the Bagong Negros, availed of free health services in a medical mission of the Davao del Sur Provincial Hospital initiated by Governor Yvonne Roña Cagas.
Today, August 3, 2022, marks the third day since the medical mission’s comeback, which officially started last week.
Residents were able to avail of free services such as dental check-up and tooth extraction; medical consultation with medicines prescribed by doctors; eye test with reading glasses; circumcision; minor surgeries like cyst, wart, and mole removal; wound dressing; and COVID-19 vaccination which was assisted by the RHU in Kiblawan, led by Nurse Napoleon Dela Peña.
The Provincial Veterinary Office also joined the team to offer free services, such as vaccinations for animals, veterinary consultation and treatment, etc.
Former governor and now Special Assistant to the Provincial Governor (SAPG) Marc Cagas graced the event and urged the people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive a booster dose.
One of the most remote and far-off barangays in Davao del Sur province—not just in Kiblawan—is Bagong Negros. Despite this, the provincial government’s free services reached the area.
Every Tuesday and Friday are scheduled for the weekly medical missions. The team’s next stop will be Barangay Savoy in Matanao, and that will be on Friday (August 5).
