Last February2-5, 2015, a medical, surgical and dental mission was held to serve the Candon City constituents. This is a joint project by the University of the Philippines Alumni Society of America (UPMASA), Ugandan Pahinungod – UP Manila, in cooperation with the office of Cong. Eric Singson, Second District, Ilocos Sur, and the office of Candon City Mayor, Ericsson Singson.
This project is to provide health care and alleviate health concerns of the people of Candon. The project was held in 3 venues, namely the Civic Center, Candon Hospital, and Farmer’s Health Centre to cater to more people who are needing the medical services.
The City government is eyeing to have more projects like these to meet the needs of its people and in building partnerships with local and international NGOs and good hearted people and civic groups.
