PH Red Cross, partners organize Health Caravan in Angono, Rizal

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Health Caravan continues to reach people with primary health care services through its Health Caravan. On 09 September 2023, the PRC Health Caravan drove to Angono, Rizal. The outreach program, held at Angono Municipal Gym, provided health consultations to 209 people through eight volunteer medical doctors and two volunteer nurses.

“The Health Caravan is our way of reaching people who, otherwise, find it challenging to access primary health care services because of logistical concerns, such as the distance of their homes to the health facility,” said PRC Chairman and CEO Dick Gordon. 

During the outreach program, 40 persons with mobility impairment and senior citizens were also given wheelchairs, while 120 persons received eyeglasses. Hot meals were served to those who participated in the event. Fourteen volunteers from RC143, the PRC’s barangay-based volunteer network, assisted in organizing the event.

“Marami sa ating mga kababayan ang pumupunta sa aming mga health caravan para makakuha  ng medical services at iba pang serbisyo, kagaya ng first aid education, Covid vaccination, pati na rin mga libreng gamit, kagaya ng eyeglasses,” explained PRC Secretary-General Dr. Gwen Pang.

Present in the event were Angono Mayor Jeri Mae E. Calderon and Angono Municipal Councilors Dokdok Villanueva and Elena Ibañez. The initiative was in partnership with the Rotary International, Church of Latter-Day Saints, and Local Government of Angono, Rizal.

A brainchild of Chairman Gordon, the PRC Health Service has reached thousands of persons across the country with medical consultations and other health services.
