During the term of president Florita, the Rotary Club of Metro Cebu, together with the All-terrain Medical Relief Organization, the GMA Kapuso Foundation and the medical organizations in Cebu, mounted massive relief operations, bringing food, water, clothing and carpentry tools to areas in Bohol hit by the 7.2-magnitude earthquake on Oct. 15 last year and in areas devastated by super typhoon Yolanda last Nov. 8 in northern Cebu, up to Carnaza Island and Guinatarcan Island in Bantayan, in Tacloban City and other parts of Leyte.
RCMC also sent relief goods, galvanized iron sheets and carpentry tools to Pilar town in Camotes Island, Cebu, with the help of the Philippine Navy’s Naval Forces Central, which allowed the deployment of three small naval crafts to transport the relief goods.
RCMC spearheaded the twice-a-year Operation Restore Hope, which has benefitted more than 5,000 children born with hare lips and cleft palates. It is also undertaking various medical missions and community projects.
Dr. Briones, RCMC past president, is currently spearheading the Central Visayas-wide anti-dengue mosquito larvicide campaign aimed at controlling and ultimately eradicating dengue-carrying mosquitoes, resulting in a record low number of dengue cases in Cebu and other parts of the region.
