The people of Barangay Banaba is now being served by the ADD Foundation, UNTV and Kamanggagawa Foundation Inc., with a medical mission at the covered court of Brgy. Banaba in Dona Pepeng Subdivision, San Mateo, as requested by Capt. Sherwin Cuevillas. The event began early and gathered a huge number of people waiting in line for the free consultation and medication services.
Capt. Cuevillas, sought out the help of Bro. Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon because according to him, the constituents of his barangay need these kinds of assistance, as is the case in many parts of the Philippines.
According to Capt. Cuevillas, even with the funding provided to the local government, there is still a great need for partner entities, like the Ang Dating Daan, KFI and the UNTV, in order to alleviate the state of medical insufficiency of destitute people within his area of jurisdiction.

Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel have been known to initiate these kinds of public services, thus, when the captain called for this action, these leaders did not think twice in answering the call and giving out the much necessary help.
The UNTV crew brought along their mobile clinic, aside from the volunteer doctors and nurses, to provide free x-ray to people who cannot afford the costly radiation exams.
Some of the attendees expressed their gratitude to Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel for sending help that is much needed in their areas.

The public service initiative is said to service locals all day until afternoon today, with an initial number of 500+ locals lining up for the different services provided including free general and specialized consultation and medication, free eye exams and prescription, free dental check up, extraction and other services.
(Capt. Sherwin Cuevillas invites people to go to the Brgy. Hall Covered court today so they can take advantage of the services).
