Rotary Club holds induction,
medical mission in Bacolod
A medical mission was held by a team of 40 volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses, Rotoractors, Interactors and barangay health officials that benefited some 270 residents of Bgry. Bata in Bacolod City Saturday, their press release said.
The activity held at the Antonio Chan Memorial Technical Center in the barangay was organized and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Bacolod Marapara, in memory of the late Mariano Lim, past president, and a major donor to the medical programs of the club, the press release also said.
Services offered included medical check-ups, dental, pedia, ECG and RBS, and free medicines were also distributed. Club president Fidel Henares said the medical missions are valuable because many of the patients would not normally be able to afford to see a doctor.
Meanwhile, the induction of members and officers of the Interact Club of Marapara, the youth wing of the Rotary Club, was held at the Negros Occidental Golf and Country Club, also in Brgy. Bata, recently.
Henares inducted Frances Therese Ereneta as president; Emily Cuaycong, vice president; Erica Martin, secretary; and Ella Trecho, treasurer. They are all students of St. Scholastica's Academy, the press release also said.
The Interactors are the high school equivalent of the Rotary International service clubs worldwide, and have assisted the RCBM during its community projects, the press release added.*
