It was my first time to set foot in Davao Oriental. Though I heard good reviews from friends about the place, most especially Mati. Volunteering for a surgical mission in that place was all worth it. The workload was exhausting, but fun at the same time. You see all of us exhausted with our job but at the end of the day, you see all smiles from us everywhere. 309 indigent cases were done in 3 days, both major and minor operations.
There was a sense of happiness and contentment knowing you are helping the indigents and rendering your nursing service to them for free. I would also like to commend the local government of Mati and the various non-government organizations, as well as the volunteers, nurses, anesthesiologists and surgeons that helped this project became a success. We all made a great job!
