CES spearheads Kabukan Island dental-medical mission


Volunteers from NDJC, composed of students, faculty, non-teaching staff, health professionals and school administrators travelled the one hour and thirty minutes ride aboard motorized boats to Kabukan Island, Panglima Tahil, on November 20, 2016 for a one-day dental-medical mission.

Invited doctors were Army Lieutenant Mark Gregory Yildirim and Capt. Albert Robin Zuniga of the Philippine Army; Dr. Juliet Jakiran, NDJC’s resident physician; and Dr. Naih Almain, an NDJC alumna.

The Alumni Association, led by Alumni Office Coordinator Ms Editha Abdulkalim, likewise joined the activity, with 17 volunteers helping in the feeding of about 150 Bajau and Tausug children and distributing oral kits.

A joint undertaking of the ND Family Wellness, AFP Dental Team, and Panglima Tahil’s Rural Health Unit, the activity was personally attended by Father President Romeo Saniel and directly supervised by VP for Administration Don Ronald Arellano. Coordinating the overall operations was CES Director Janice Jalali whose office also spearheaded the said mission.

At the day’s end, a total of 250 patients were served by the medical team, while about 50 patients had a tooth extracted. The day-long work winded in a swim at nearby Ramos Beach with about a dozen opting for a trek up the hill by the seashore.

The trip was along NDJC’s outreach program to the poorest of the poor. Aside from yearly medical and dental missions, CES also has an ongoing seaweed farming project in the island. The seaweed farm and supports a socio-economic package that support beneficiary families’ basic health and food needs, and the well-being of Bajau children.
