TYPHOON HAIYAN MEDICAL-DENTAL MISSION
- Location of Relief:Bantayan Island
- Date of Relief:7 Apr 2016
- Location:Bantayan Island
ACROSS successfully conducted a medical-dental mission to Bantayan Island blessing over 2,000 residents there. Five surgeries were also conducted.
The team of 16 volunteers from ACROSS, the 10-member dental team led by Dr Lorna from Cebu, and the 12-member REACT team were on hand to conduct this mission.
Also, we are glad to be able to commission a TESDA school (6 classroom) which not only provides courses for young people to acquire a skill but the school doubles up as an evacuation centre should another monstor typhoon hits Bantayan Island.
