  1. Dr. Ong, Thank you for the kind words but the only time the Gov. gets involved in the relief supply area is as a result of natural disasters and upon collaboration between the governments. The squadrons are given missions to accomplish just as in moving supplies to the front staging areas in certain geographical areas. In my case, I have been retired for several years now and any help I can give would be at the lay level only. I still live by the 5 P’s (Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance). I will keep Belen informed as to any developments.

    Thank you

  2. Cynthia,
    Thank you for you and Mike coming on board. Perhaps you can help us thru Maynard who works at Malacanang on the 5 containers of donated equipments and supplies for the mission. We heard about the Adopt Hospital Program by the Phil Gov’t going on.We are planning to ship them this Sept in time for the medical mission early next year.
