A dental mission in Arayat and Santa Ana towns in Pampanga province provided relief to some 448 patients who received free tooth extraction and checkups.
The dental mission was part of the Alagang Nanay Preventive Healthcare Program, which aims to help citizens with chronic illness, officials said.
“Magpasalamat ku pu, melibri kung bagut. Pota pu kasing magpabagut ku, nang kamal. Maragul ya pung saup ini, kasi itang dapat pamayad ming bagut, pwede mi ne pung panyaling pamangan,” Maria Teresa Baltazar, 55, from Plazang Luma, said in a Sun Star Pampanga report.
Other town officials also attended the Alagang Nanay Dental Mission, the report added.
“Kami po rito sa Arayat, basta programa ng ating mahal na gobernador at bise gobernador, palagi po kaming nakaantabay dahil ito po ay hindi birong biyayang ipinagkakaloob sa aming mga kababayan,” Arayat Mayor Madir Alejandrino said.
