CFC ANCOP USA reaches out to kababayans in Aklan
Friday, February 19, 2016

The CFC ANCOP USA embarked on a medical/ surgical mission in four towns of Aklan from February 11-15, 2016 treating some 2,500 indigent patients.


Health care for the poor is one of the programs of CFC ANCOP USA. This is the 5th year that they have been conducting this kind of mission. 


There were 62 volunteers in the team, 38 of whom were from ANCOP USA. The rest were from the Aklan department of health personnel and local Couples for Christ members.


The Mission had a surgical team component, but had a separate schedule and attended to patients at the Kalibo Provincial Hospital. The surgical mission was composed of 30 surgeons (including Dr. Joe Yamamoto of the CFC IC), nurses and volunteers.


The Aklan Mission Team, in partnership with a disaster relief foundation in the US, brought in to Aklan $200,000 worth of medicines. ANCOP USA will turnover medicines valued at $20,000 to Romblon Caritas, a Catholic relief group. Any leftover medicines will be left with the host province's provincial hospital.  


The Aklan Mission was led by Roger Santos, Executive Director, ANCOP USA and his wife Josie, with Elizabeth Macaraeg, head of the CFC ANCOP USA 4-year Medical Mission project. (ANCOP USA Communications)
