Umasa po kayo na mag-iikot ang mobile clinic sa 13 barangays para makapagbigay ng libreng medical assistance sa ating mga kababayan (It was a promise before that was fulfilled today with the help of the Sangguniang Bayan led by Vice Mayor Bobong Ong and the entire staff of the LGU-Baler. The mobile clinic will roam around the 13 barangays to provide free medical assistance to our townmates),” Angara said.

The mayor said the mobile clinic will be detailed in the rural health unit office while the two multi-purpose vehicles will be at the Municipal Risk Reduction and Management Office.
