CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Some 3,000 indigent folks recently benefited from the series of “Magsibi Tamu” (Let us serve, we can) missions all over the city.

On Saturday, about 2,000 relocatees at Northville 14 were beneficiaries of “Oplan Bigay Lunas” (OBL) which saw the folks in a medical mission conducted with Mercury Drug and volunteer doctors and medical practitioners.

Community Affairs Division chief Donny Sayre said the whole-day OBL came complete with ECG, check-ups and other medical services.

“This is part of our endeavor to provide our poorest of the poor with such medical missions with facilities and check-ups that are often too expensive for them,” Sayre said.

OBL was succeeded by the Magsilbi Tamu mission in Barangay Del Pilar, where close to a thousand residents of the village lined for free medical services, slots for scholarships, employment opportunities and other basic services that the City Government brings down to the people.

“It’s a regular activity that we bring to all our 34 barangays. It’s us who come to them for their comfort and convenience. It saves Fernandinos a lot in terms of fare and food,” Sayre added.

For this month, the Magsilbi Tamu team led by Mayor Oscar Rodriguez will make its rounds of Barangays San Agustin, San Jose, Lara, San Felipe, Calulut and Quebiawan.

In April, Magsilbi Tamu will go to Barangays Telabastagan, Saguin, Dolores, Del Carmen, Alasas, Pandaras, Sta. Lucia, Sindalan and Dela Paz Sur.

Come May, the team will be at Barangays San Isidro and San Nicolas.
