The Joint Medical Mission is a testament of an active Whole of Nation Approach towards peace and development, as well as serving the needs of the citizens not only in the remote areas of the region.

“We saw that it should not only be in remote areas; we also have Kababayans who need medical help, and there are many other citizens who, just like them, we need to look at what we can do for them,” said BGen Abraham Claro Casis (Ret) of OPAPRU, Consultant for Peace in North and Central Luzon.

Meanwhile, beneficiaries from the medical mission expressed gratitude to the NOLCOM, AFP and its partners for organizing it.

The NOLCOM AFP continues to collaborate with stakeholders to carry out similar activities to deliver and free services to those in need.
