Dr. Cagape, Cherry Mobile bring E-txt Mo Kay Doc to remote village

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (September 11, 2014) – Dr. Roel Cagape of the Hearts and Brains, Inc. (HABI) and a recipient of the Gawad Geny Lopez Jr. Bayaning Pilipino award distributes the manual for E-txt Mo Kay Doc for its E-Health Center project during the two-day medical mission sponsored by Cherry Mobile, a cellular phone company, at Sitio Safya, Barangay Poblacion Tuesday, September 9. Sitio Safya is inhabited by Blaans and can be accessed only by foot for about 7-8 hours by non-residents. Aside from medical services, Cherry Mobile is in the process of a community consultation for the proposed construction of several dormitories called Bahay Tuluyan for elementary pupils in Sitio Kiahe, Barangay Kinam. The Sulong Sarangani convergence program of Gov. Steve Chiongbian Solon, in partnership with Cong. Manny Pacquiao and Vice Gov. Jinkee Pacquiao, is grateful for this partnership and welcomes other NGOs to join the poverty alleviation and access-to-basic-services program. Sulong Sarangani’s thrust is to converge knowledge and resources of both public and private sectors. (Kim Windell V. Tiblani/PROVINCIAL GOVERNOR'S OFFICE)
