Surigao City, Surigao del Norte, Project B.O.S.S. November 13-15 2013

November 13-15 2013 -Second Mission. The group of Project B.O.S.S. came again to this city for the FREE Cataract and Cleft Lip/Palate operation done this time by the Mabuhay Deseret Foundation and Bro. Dr. Butch Mapayo, the Plastic Surgeon. The city government hosted the affair and the Caraga Regional Hospital was the venue. There were only more than 20 Cleft Lip/Palate patients who arrived though there 39 who previously registered plus the 16 coming from Cabadbaran. There were also more than 200 patients screened for Cataract but only 22 were operated with 17 Pterygium, and 16 clefts. The recipient for free eyeglasses reached nearly 200. The dismal outcome was due to the Typhoon Zorayda scared, even though it was only signal No.1, which eventually dissipated to a mere tropical depression. Ms. Elen Estrada actually wanted to postpone it, but she was prevailed upon by the thought that it would be unfair for those who have come, and it will reflective to the host. Mayor Ernesto Tinio Matugas, who was very appreciative for having it pushed through. We paid him a courtesy visit. Dr. Andres Dolar, the Chief of Hospital was very cooperative and so with their Chief Nurse Jane T. Miranda. Loving Presence Foundation, represented by Ms. Josephine Belsondra did mostly the info dissemination together with Ms. Vangie Cerio from City Health Office headed by Dr. Emmanuel Plandana. Bro. Jovito Litang, the Vice President of APOSCAA contributed much for the good completion of the mission. It was again Ms. Gay Tiu of RMN who did the radio broadcasting.
