The IDB Graduates (IGA) Zone 4 in partnership with Notre Dame Clinic-Family Wellness, Community Extension Services (CES), School Clinic, and Health Sciences Department of Notre Dame of Jolo College initiated a one day successful MEDICAL MISSION IN SULU, particularly in Kabukan Island, Panglima Tahil,last October 15, 2014. The free service and free medicines catered 150 indigents on medical diagnostic consultation. The health care team volunteers composed of one licensed medical specialist, seven registered nurses, five registered midwives, seven Barangay Health Workers and four volunteers.

This medical community activity was initiated to achieve better primary health care auxiliaries for humanitarian service for our partner communities in order to prevent further illness and maintain optimum good health for better living and for the future.

Remember, the communities we live in should not be built with individual people but with families sharing lives, resources and common destinies. Good communities as partners lead to good neighborhoods and good neighborhoods lead to good communities.

Along with these experiences, it was indeed another highly successful event. Everyone went home equipped with new responsibilities and resolved to perform more positively in their work. Moreover, we deeply value the invaluable presence, trust and humble support of the following: Dr. Maria Lilybeth Tantoco-Usama, Nursing and Midwifery Clinical Instructors, Volunteer Nurses and Barangay Health Workers, PNP Security, Panglima Tahil local officials and staff of RHU Panglima Tahil and most especially to the IDB Graduates headed by IDB Graduates of Zone IV President, Mr. Timothy A. Ijiran  through the generous and untiring support of Sulu Governor Honorable Abdusakur “Totoh” A. Tan II and Vice Governor Honorable Abdusakur M. Tan as co-sponsors.
