SAMAL, Davao del Norte, August 23, 2012—A Catholic lay group, the Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCBP) of Davao East conducted their 1st Mercy Mission at Sto. Niño Parish in Kaputian, Samal City, August 5.
The medical team, headed by Dr. Hansel Magno, from the Kaputian Health Center served around seven hundred fifty (750) patients coming from the Poblacion Kaputian and various areas nearby.
Sto. Niño Parish youth coordinator Eliziar Gualdajara said in an interview that Fr. Rico Enriquez spearheaded the activity knowing that through this, many people will be better served.
“Fr. Enriquez took the opportunity to serve Christ’s ministry to the sick through medical mission. This is his first medical mission project as our parish priest in partnership with the Kaputian health center,” Gualdajara said.
Fr. Enriquez celebrated a mass before the mercy mission started.
Medical practitioners and volunteers members of BCBP rendered their services for free such as medical, pediatrics, optometric, dental, and pharmaceutical.
A feeding program was also held during the mission where the group distributed goods like rice, clothes and slippers to the people of Kaputian. (Jecy Opada/Jandel Posion)
