Senator Joel Villanueva and his younger sister Mayor Joni Villanueva-Tugna celebrated Mother’s Day by conducting a medical and dental mission with the villagers of St. Martha Estate Subdivision, Barangay Batia Sunday.
By noontime, some 5,000 residents have already availed of the free medical, dental and optical services jointly conducted by the senator’s staff, the municipal government, the Caloocan Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and the Bulacan Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce.
Sen. Villanueva said that this medical, dental and optical mission will be sustained.
“Now it’s only a medical mission, (but) soon the people of Bocaue will have their own public hospital complete with modern medical facilities, doctors and nurses,” Villanueva, who was the former director general of the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA), said.
The young senator, a native of Bocaue, said the people of Bocaue have been dreaming to have their own public hospital.
He said he will “move heaven and earth” so that this dream will come true soon.
“We have many doctors, nurses and medical technicians. We also have the best medical school so it won’t be long before this dream will become a reality,” the senator said.
Mayor Villauneva-Tugna, for her part, said that this health care project will soon come true “because of the cooperation and the strong faith of the people of Bocaue.”
She thanked the Bulacan Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce, headed by Executive Vice President Arthur Dy, and the Caloocan Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce for helping them in providing free medical, dental and optical mission for the people of Bocaue. (EGG/PNA)
