Around 1,000 beneficiaries including infants, children, adults, senior members as well as persons with disability availed of the free medical and dental mission at SM City Baliwag.
Spearheaded by the SM Foundation Inc. in partnership with the local health and DSWD offices of Baliwag and Bustos Municipality, Bulacan Red Cross and the Bulacan Media Investigative Reporters, the health mission conducted medical services by volunteer doctors and nurses. Other services rendered are free tooth extraction, blood pressure and blood sugar check, X-Ray, ECG and urinalysis. Free vitamins and medicines were also given during the activity.
Likewise, a community health mission was also conducted prior to the mall-based project which was held at the Biak na Bato Elementary School. Over 2,000 residents received much needed medical aid. Partners of the community-based activity were Sisters of the Divine Shepherd led by Mother Ma Bernadette Mahomoc,SDS and Rev. Fr. Javier Joaquin.
