Parents of 20 students studying in St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City have been "praying" for the school to provide a nebulizer machine in the clinic for their children who have asthma. Their prayers were answered today as the Babes of Bacolod, thru the Tapulanga Foundation, donated a nebulizer!
The Babes of Bacolod, a Los Angeles-based fundraising group, recently donated over P170,000 worth of medical supplies and equipment to the Department of Internal Medicine of the C.L. Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital. Last year they donated 50 mattresses and two suction machines. This year, they were able to donate much more - six suction machines, nine nebulizers, over 200 ET and tracheostomy tubes, sterile gloves, valve masks, a diagnostic set and a laryngoscope blade - due to the overwhelming success of their fundraiser. Mrs. Micmic Golez, Executive Director of the Tapulanga Foundation, represented the Babes as she delivered the supplies to the following: IM's (Internal Medicine) Training Officer Dr. Rafaelito Salvador, Chief Resident Dra. Mari Cris Bacinillo and doctors Juliuis dela Cruz, Carina Frayco, Kristin Atonson, Celestelyn Barredo, Gerard Espilita, Mary Anne Jocson and Mark Agana.
