SFDEO sponsors NSHCA’s Medical, Optical and Dental Mission in N. Samar

Northern Samar Health Care Advocates

April 10, 2019

CALBAYOG CITY – The Northern Samar Health Care Advocates (NSHCA) have once again conducted their annual medical, optical and dental mission last March 23, 2019 (7:30AM-3:00PM), in behalf of marginalized people in Northern Samar.

The NSHCA is a partnership of church, government and socio-civic organizations for health care advocacy. For this year, they have chosen the St. Anthony of Padua Parish in San Jose, N. Samar as its partner-beneficiary.

As this year’s main sponsor, DPWH Samar First Engineering Office raised funds to cover the medicines and dental supplies needed.

This was made possible through the voluntary contributions of District Engineer Alvin A. Ignacio, OIC-Assistant DE Denis C. Cagomoc, section chiefs, unit heads, and other DPWH employees.

The activity was spearheaded by the Diocese of Catarman, through the Diocesan Social Action Center - Caritas Catarman Foundations, Inc (DSAC-CCFI).

Beyond infrastructure and public works, SFDEO supports community programs and extension services wherever possible.
