So far, over 2,000 patients have already availed benefits and services offered under the Eyecare and Surgicare Program of the administration of Mayor Oscar ‘Oca’ Moreno.
The program is an initiative of the City Social Welfare and Dev’t Office, headed by CSWD Officer Teddy Sabuga-a, to answer the medical needs and eye problems of city residents, especially those who can’t afford expenses on minor surgical operations.
Under the program, those who suffer sickness such as myoma, hernia, goiter and cyst can avail of secondary elective surgeries, aside from cataract operations for those suffering eyesight problems.
Beneficiaries are grateful and thankful to Mayor Moreno’s Eyecare and Surgicare Program, citing that the program is truly of great help to those in dire need. (Petite Coleen Marie T. Tandog, Lourdes College Intern)
