ORANI, Bataan: A public elementary school celebrating its 100th year of founding and a church, both in this town, on Saturday conducted separate medical and dental missions that benefited more than 550 indigents. Hermi Duran, president of the Orani North Elementary School centennial celebration committee, said their medical-dental mission attended to 150 medical and 100 dental patients who were also given free medicines like multi-vitamins, anti-biotics and medications for coughs and blood pressure, among others. Volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists and midwives attended to the patients at the classrooms of the oldest public school in the town. Another medical mission, conducted by the Diocesan Shrine & Parish of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, benefited more than 300 indigents who were offered bone screening, ECG and blood typing, among some others. Free reading glasses were also given. “This is one way of celebrating the extra-ordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy by serving the poor patients,” Rev. Fr. Santos Detablan, the parish priest, said.
