ORANI, Bataan—Around 3,000 residents of this town benefitted from the medical and dental mission sponsored by board member Benjie Serrano as his treat to them in celebration of his 42nd birthday.
Residents received free checkups, medicines, dental services, reading glasses, and free haircut from the mission held at the covered court of Orani North Elementary School on Sunday.
The medical and dental mission was in partnership with the Caloocan Filipino Chinese Charity Clinic and the Rotary Club of Caloocan Central.
Residents who benefitted from the mission thanked Serrano for “not forgetting them and being true to his words.” The board member’s birthday falls on Feb. 9, but treated his Orani constituents four days earlier on Sunday.
“I have been doing this medical and dental mission during birthday for my constituents since 1993, when I was SK [Sangguniang Kabataan] Orani Federation president,” said Serrano, a three-term mayor of this town.
Serrano is also conducting “Dalaw Barangay” services in the villages of the province’s first district. The community services include free haircuts, free dental services, feeding program, free massage, and anti-rabies vaccination, among others.
