The call to serve is always there, but it isn’t an easy road. The Grade 11 students were called to respond to that very call of service in the Medical-Dental Mission that was held last October 7 in the Assumption Antipolo Campus from 7 in the morning to 12 in the afternoon. The event was aimed to provide medical and dental services to those who avail of the provided services.
Preparations that were made months before the event itself included the contacting of both medical and dental practitioners, gathering medicine and monetary donations from various organizations and from the school community, arranging the general flow of the event, and availing of necessary equipment. The batch was divided into committees for planning and to distribute the work for the Medical-Dental Mission.
1,521 patients were catered to that day by 225 medical volunteers who had allotted the Sunday to participate in the event. Student, teacher, and parent volunteers worked together to achieve the common goal of joyful service towards all involved persons in the activity as part of our oneness of being God’s Beloved.
