On August 25, 2017, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), through its Medical Services Department, conducted a special free clinic to the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija upon the request of WB Harry B. Domingo of Memorial Lodge No. 90 (The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the Philippines).
The PCSO Medical Team, in collaboration with the Department of Health (DOH) and local volunteer groups, arrived on a two-ambulance convoy composed of doctors, nurses, dentists, and support staff.
To the delight of the locals, Mayor Nestor Alvarez graced the event. He was appreciative of everyone’s support and requested future visits from PCSO to conduct more humanitarian activities in Muñoz.
A total of 267 patients were assisted from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon that day. Mayor Nestor Alvarez and the Free Mason of Lodge No. 90 thanked PCSO for answering the call of service to the poorest of the poor in Muñoz, Nueva Ecija.
