The medical-dental mission by the Ang Dating Daan group and UNTV was described by a Bulacan barangay cooperative group as an endeavor that exemplifies Bro. Eli Soriano’s cause for the poor.
The reachout effort that served a total of 594 barangay indigents in Bulacan, a province north of the capital Manila, received acclaim from Ligas Kooperatiba ng Bayan sa Pagpapaunlad recently.
“On behalf of Ligas Kooperatiba ng Bayan sa Pagpapaunlad, we are very much thankful to Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel,” said chairperson Anthony Sese, adding that Bro. Eli’s group “immediately responded to our request, that they may be our partner in doing this service.”
The Ang Dating Daan Foundation International, the Members Church of God International (MCGI) presided to by Bro. Eli in cooperation with UNTV media channel, are partners and organizers of the medical mission where the recent endeavor in a barangay in Bulacan is just one.
“This [medical mission] is a proof that they are doing what they have learned from [Bro. Eli],” said Catalina Santiago, the cooperative’s General Manager. “… they (MCGI and UNTV) spread this kind of endeavor to a place like ours where public services are not usually mounted.”
Bro. Eli has always been unwavering in preaching the biblical relevance of doing good to people whenever there is a chance and in every way possible.
The philanthropic effort of MCGI and UNTV includes the following services: free medical consultations for the adults and children, dental check-up, tooth extraction, optometric, physical therapy and X-ray services, electrocardiogram (ECG) test and red blood cell (RBC) count.
Ang Dating Daan and UNTV also handed out free medicines for the residents of Brgy. Ligas.
Teary-eyed, Amalia Baltazar who is one of the medical mission’s beneficiaries, said how this charitable undertaking is helpful to people, “This is for those who cannot afford this kind of services. I am grateful to them [Ang Dating Daan and UNTV].”
For the past years, the partnership of Ang Dating Daan and UNTV has been consistent in reaching out and offering medical even legal services to the marginalized in the far-flung areas of the country.
