More than 10,000 people benefited from the recently concluded Eagle Bayan Care-avan spearheaded by the Eagle Broadcasting Corporation (EBC), a multi-brand, multimedia organization. This is a historic first in the Philippine media industry and community service. Free medical, dental and legal consultation community outreach program was simultaneously conducted last Saturday, August 6, 2011 in five separate venue within Metro Manila which include the following:
- Malabon – Oreta Amphitheater
- Quezon City – Amoranto Stadium
- Marikina – Marikina Sports Center
- Manila – San Andres Gym
- Pasay – Cuneta Astrodome
I am happy to note that it was a multi-sectoral all-volunteer advocacy project supported by the Department of Health, NGOs in the medical field such as Philippine Medical Association (PMA), Valenzuela Medical Society, Philippine Dental Association (PDA), and Philippine Nurses Association (PNA), Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), by the academe New Era University and Fatima University & Medical Center, and the Business Mirror (media).Several companies who also extended their support to the event are San Miguel Corporation, Universal Robina Corporation (URC Foundation), Unilever, Colgate-Palmolive, Splash Corp., McDonald’s, Rai Rai Ken,Kopiroti, Babyflo, Abbot, BDO, Banco de Oro and Biocomic.
