conducted their annual medical, optical and dental mission last
March 23, 2019 (7:30AM-3:00PM), in behalf of marginalized people in
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.
