The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Pangasinan Chapter recently held a Health Caravan in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, providing free medical consultations and other health services to over 150 individuals.
The Health Caravan took place at the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Church in Barangay Pedro T. Orata, and was attended by volunteers and staff from PRC, including doctors, dentists, and nurses. The event was made possible with the support of various partners and sponsors, including the Urdaneta City Health Office, Philippine Medical Society Eastern Pangasinan Chapter, Philippine Academy of Family Physician – Pangasinan Chapter, Virgen Milagrosa University Foundation Pharmacy, Schools Division Office of Urdaneta, and Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Church.
Attendees were able to receive a range of free services, including medical consultations, hygiene promotion, dental services, blood sugar checks, first aid lectures, COVID vaccinations, and free medicines. The Health Caravan was especially timely, given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the need for increased access to healthcare services.
The PRC Health Caravan in Urdaneta City is just one of many initiatives aimed at providing support to vulnerable communities across the Philippines. PRC is committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of Filipinos, and their work is made possible through the dedication of their volunteers and the support of their partners and sponsors.
The success of the Health Caravan in Urdaneta City is a testament to the power of community collaboration in addressing healthcare challenges. Through their collective efforts, PRC and its partners were able to make a significant impact on the lives of individuals in need.
