Apo Agua joins medical-dental mission for IP communities

Last April, Apo Agua participated in two medical and dental missions held last April in the Calinan and Tugbok Districts in Davao City.

Apo Agua distributed medicines and supplies at the outreach organized by the Region 11 office of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP).

Volunteer health professionals included a doctor, two dentists, nurses, and midwives from the NCIP and Davao City Health Office.

A total of 285 beneficiaries from different tribes—Diangan, Bagobo Klata, Obo Manobo, and Matigsalug—were given free health services. Most common concerns were cough, colds, fever, diarrhea, hypertension, and toothache.
