Rep. George Arnaiz (Neg. Or., 2nd District) celebrated his 58th birthday yesterday by holding a medical mission in Tanjay City, and visiting a mental health facility, an orphanage and a temporary shelter for abused children and women in Dumaguete City.

He was joined by his family and colleagues, like Tanjay City Mayor Lawrence Teves, Sangguniang Panlungsod members, Vice Governor Apolinario Arnaiz Jr. and former Finance Secretary Gary Teves, at the medical mission in Barangay Pal-iw, Tanjay City.

Services offered included free medical consultation and medicines, tooth extraction, and massage and haircut by Army personnel.

Arnaiz also led the inauguration of a bridge in Pal-iw, worth P23-million, that was and implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The family yesterday visited the Casa Esperanza, the Talay Mental Rehabilitation Center and the Sto. Niño Children’s Home Foundation, where orphans, mental patients and victims of abuse were provided with food.

Another medical-dental mission will be conducted on Saturday in barangays Calicanan and Fatima in Pamplona, Arnaiz said.
