I’m reposting this letter, a call of help for the victims of typhoon Pablo, from the Philippine Medical Association Southeastern Mindanao governor Dr. Noel Camigue

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the profession;
The PNRC in partnership with DOH and PMA has set up an emergency medical facility in Baganga, Davao Oriental. We are in need of Volunteer Doctors to man the station on a 48 hour alternating duties.
Wish you could share at least 2 days from members to go on duty in the emergency health facility considering that we will be running the unit for an estimated period of 15 days to 1 month until a permanent facility will be built in the area by the local health unit.
Attached is the detailed concept of the Program with file title RISE Mindanao.
Attached as well are the schedule of medical missions done and those to be conducted within the week.
Presently Dr. Remo Aguilar and his group is mapping all areas where medical missions had been conducted for us to evaluate areas covered for planning of the next medical mission to be conducted in areas that were not yet served and as well we can recommend areas to visit for those who plan to conduct medical missions. Kindly email me of all the areas your group had visited for us to upload the data you fed to the medical mission mapping.
Thank you for your support!
Your PMA Governor
Dr. Noel Camique
RISE Mindanao!!!

These were the medical missions done in Davao oriental and those that are to be conducted.
