THE Full Gospel Nowon Church based in Seoul, South Korea is sending over 33 medical doctors and practitioners to Iloilo City to conduct a one-day free medical and dental mission on Monday, September 20.
Dolores Laudenorio, event organizer and head of the Office of Person with Disability Affairs (Opda), said the Korean humanitarian mission will be held at the Department of Education (DepEd) Social Hall from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The team will conduct treatment and consultation to persons with disabilities (PWDs) and indigent families in the city.
The Koreans will be bringing an X-ray machine, ultrasound, dental equipment, assorted medicines and assistive devices for the use of the PWDs.
Laudenorio said the Korean church-based mission was connected through Opda's international access and networking in a move to help uplift the lives of more than 3,000 PWDs in the city.
Opda is the umbrella organization of 15 government and non-government organizations working for the concerns of PWDs in the city.
Laudenorio is the sectoral representative of Western Visayas in the National National Anti-Poverty Commission. (LCP)
