LUBAO— Ka­pam­pan­gans based in the United States are sched­uled to hold a med­i­cal and den­tal mission at the M. Pineda Sports Com­plex here on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 16.

The Agu­man Ca­pam­pan­gan NW USA (ACNU) will bring a team of med­i­cal and den­tal pro­fes­sion­als to pro­vide free ser­vices to res­i­dents here from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm

Lo­cal power dis­trib­u­tor, Pam­panga II Elec­tric Co­op­er­a­tive (Pelco 2) has resched­uled its power in­ter­rup­tion slated on that day to give way for the mission, a bi­en­nial project of ACMU.

ACNU pres­i­dent Mina Guinto-Ta­hay­eri said the med­i­cal and den­tal mission is chaired by Ernie Turla, Semion Ma­maril, Ak­bar Ta­hay­eri and Ben Aga­mat.

“This project is very close to our hearts be­cause our Gov­er­nor Lilia ‘Nanay’Pineda is giv­ing fo­cus to health ser­vices. Our lo­cal gov­ern­ment units here in Pam­panga are also fol­low­ing suit to this ad­vo­cacy and as­sis­tance from our fel­low Ka­pam­pan­gans from abroad is very much wel­come,” the mayor said.
