Close to 400 residents from Sitio Looc, Brgy. Bato, Toledo City benefited from a medical mission organized by AboitizPower subsidiary Therma Visayas, Inc. (TVI) in partnership with the Barangay Council of Bato, barangay health workers, and volunteer doctors and dentists from the City Health Office and Toledo City Hospital.
The activity, which coincided with the sitio’s annual fiesta celebration last August 9, was among the several medical missions TVI has lined up for the community for the second half of the year.
“AboitizPower has really made a positive impact on the community and we greatly appreciate programs like this medical mission because it shows that they really care for us as their neighbors,” Vicente Cabatuan, one of the beneficiaries, said in vernacular.
TVI will conduct a larger medical mission for Brgy. Bato, Brgy. Awihao, and Brgy. Cabitoonan, Toledo City in October. The medical missions aim to provide the community access to free healthcare and medicine, especially those who have limited or no access at all to proper healthcare.
