THE OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE ORDER OF ASCLEPIUS : WEST VISAYAS STATE UNIVERSITY—COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

ervice knows no limit, sees
no boundaries.
Thus, upon the invitation of
Dr. Evangeline BanggiCua, an alumna of WVSU College of
Medicine, six resident members of the
Order of Asclepius joined the Team
Banggi as they conducted a four-day
medical mission at Brgy Malabor,
Tibao and in the islands of Culasi,
Antique, May 27-30, 2015.
The series of medical mission
kicked off at Santo Rosario Elementary
School at Brgy. Malabor, Tibiao,
Antique, servicing a total of 327 adult
and pediatric residents.
The second leg of the medical
caravan was held at Brgy. Maniguin,
Culasi, Antique, roughly a three-hour
boat ride from Malalison Island. The
team held their free health check-up
and gave away free medications in the
barangay’s basketball court where
they consulted 348 residents of the
community.
From
Maniguin,
the
team
transferred to Brgy. Batbatan, an island

barangay roughly 90 minutes away
from Maniguin. A total of 299
residents
had
their
health
consultation wherein, 181 of them
were adults while 118 were pediatric
clients.
The final leg of the medical
mission was conducted at the famed
Malalison Island, a 20-minute boat
ride from the port of Culasi in
Antique where a total of 62 residents
were consulted and were given free
medications by the team.
Team Banggi is the first local
private initiative to deploy medical
and surgical missions in Tacloban
City, Leyte. The team was composed
of 30 volunteers organized by
Dr.
Banggi-Cua after typhoon
Yolanda struck the provinces of
Eastern Visayas in 2013. The team
traveled to places such as Samar,
Leyte, Capiz, Palawan, Antique,
and even as far in the north as
Ifugao to render surgical and
medical
services
to
our
impoverished countrymen.

The team who joined in the
mission was composed of three
physicians, namely: Dr. Evangeline
Banggi-Cua, Dr. Roan Longakit and Dr.
Cleo Gevero; three registered nurses:
Regine Camille Garcia, Izanor Lyn
Javier and Marcos Caratao Jr; and one
professor
at
UP-Visayas,
Mr.
Emmanuel Lerona.
The OA resident members who
stepped up to the challenge of
providing service in the far flung
islands were: Stephanie Grace Lucero,
Aizlynn Anne Robledo, Elly Novem
Eluna, Allen Rey Alipen, Therese
Angela Benite and Louise Cecille del
Rosario.
Mixing business with pleasure
was not a difficult task for the team as
they were surrounded by the pristine
waters, powdery white sand, and an
abundance of marine biodiversity.
This, on top of the majestic Mt.
Madja-as , which got its name from the
Karay-a term which means high or tall.
One can even view this experience as
‘wandering with a purpose’. #
