The weeklong humanitarian mission will start tomorrow in Lila with emphasis onÂ general medicine, pediatrics, physical therapy, optometry, and dentistry.
Gov. Edgar Chatto met the head of operations, Lt. Col. Jaime Lindman, MSN Commander at the Peopleâ€™s Mansion last week.
Pacific Angel has partnered with the Provincial Government in bringing humanitarian civic assistance specifically in preparedness, restoration, and rehabilitation efforts to the province.
Part of the health services outreach are trainings on mass casualty response for healthcare personnel, community public health at local food establishments, as well as community dental health at Lila DepEd Elementary Schools in Lila Central, Bonkokan, Calvario, Jambawan, and Nagsulay.
The team will also be holding engineering civic action program in collaboration with the Provincial Engineering Team for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of damaged schools during the earthquake.
The engineering civic action program will be implemented in San Isidro National High School, Dao Elementary School and Dampas Elementary School in Tagbilaran City; Bartolome Doria Elementary School in Calunasan Norte, Loboc; Biking Technical Vocational High School in Dauis; and Owac Elementaary School in Subayon, Bilar.
According to Lindman who was guest at Fridayâ€™s Kita Ug Ang Gobernador, the humanitarian assistance mission is conducted to enhance relations with partner nations, build medical and civil assistance capacity in those nations, and to support the nationâ€™s efforts to assist their population in a time of need.
The operation is strategically placed in the Pacific region to support the U.S. military charter of capacity building in partner nations. The operations contain elements of all four branches of the Department of Defense, including active duty,Â National Guard, and reserve members.
A Bohol Support Team has been formed to assist the Pacific Angel mission.
While preparing for the mission, the Pacific Angel team was able to join a tree planting activity to launch the Purok Power Movement Mini Forest in Katipunan, Carmen last Thursday.Â (Leah/EDCOM)
