LUBAO, Pam­panga (PNA) Ka­pam­pan­gans based in the United States will hold a med­i­cal and den­tal mis­sion at the M. Pineda Sports Com­plex here to­day. The Agu­man Ca­pam­pan­gan NW USA (ACNU) will bring a team of med­i­cal and den­tal pro­fes­sion­als to pro­vide free ser­vices to res­i­dents from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lo­cal power dis­trib­u­tor, Pam­panga II Elec­tric Co­op­er­a­tive (Pelco 2), has resched­uled its power in­ter­rup­tion slated on that day to give way to the mis­sion, a bi­en­nial project of ACNU. ACNU pres­i­dent Mina Guin­toTa­hay­eri said the med­i­cal and den­tal mis­sion com­mit­tee is chaired by Ernie Turla, Semion Ma­maril, Ak­bar Ta­hay­eri and Ben Aga­mat. Mayor My­lyn Pineda-Cayabyab, for her part, ex­pressed grat­i­tude to ACNU for choos­ing Lubao as their venue for the mis­sion. She said the project will ben­e­fit res­i­dents com­ing from the marginal­ized sec­tor. “This project is very close to our hearts be­cause our Gov­er­nor Lilia 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. The project is in co­or­di­na­tion with the of­fice of Pam­panga Sec­ond Dis­trict Rep. Glo­ria Ma­ca­pa­galAr­royo, Gov­er­nor Pineda, Vice Gov­er­nor Den­nis Pineda and the mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment of Lubao.
