he service of an
Asclepian knows no
through the deepest
reaches of the urban jungle or the
farthest valleys and plains, the
plight of the needy will always
cause the heart of any true
Asclepian to heed the call and go.
This was proven true again as
Asclepians from Batches 37 and 39
converged with various health
agencies around Iloilo for a
medical-surgical mission last
Sunday, October 25, at Barangay
Dorong-an, Tigbauan, Iloilo.
The tasks for the day were
divided into two parts; a
circumcision program was held at
the municipality’s main Health
Center, while the medical mission
was held at the covered court of
Barangay Dorong-an. Volunteer
Asclepians, numbering 14 in total,
were asked to serve in the latter.
As is with any circumstance in
the field of medicine, one must
always expect the unexpected.
The volunteer Asclepians were in
for quite a surprise, as unforeseen
events caused preparations for the
medical-surgical mission to be
placed aside in order to make way
for a new set of experiences and
learnings. While the Asclepian
volunteers were originally slated
to serve in the surgical mission,
they were instead tasked to go to
Barangay Dorong-an to help out in
the medical mission. The journey
to the barangay was also eventful,
with the team even needing to
cross a river to get to the area of
concern. However, circumstance
did not get in the way of service,
as the Asclepians in the mission
were more than happy to oblige.
Asclepians took turns in
rotating in the different stations
made available for them to serve in;
some volunteered in the triage
station, while others provide help
in the pharmacy. In the end, more
than 100 pediatric patients and 200
adult patients were served in the
Another day, another
opportunity for service. Whenever
the need exists, Asclepians will
always be there, willing and ready
to take on the challenge to serve.
The medical-surgical mission
was made possible in coordination
with Asclepian Brothers and Sisters
Dr. Ronar Silao, Dr. Mei Silao (Batch
24), and Dr. Owen Poral (Batch 13).
The event was also held in
partnership with the West Visayas
Medical Center, the West Visayas
Sanitarium, the Department of
Health, and the Municipal
Government of Tigbauan. #
