“Bagaman at sinisikap natin na lalong pagbutihin ang serbisyo ng ating mga pampublikong ospital, malaki ang ating pasasalamat na may mga taong katulad nila, na kahit pa nasa dayuhang lupa ay bukas-palad na tumutulong sa ating mga kalalawigan na nangangailangan ng tulong-medikal. Ang Panginoon na ang bahalang gumanti sa kanilang mga kabutihan,” Alvarado said.
The governor also said that the province is set to welcome the delegates of the PMA medical mission through performances of Bulakenyo talents on January 29, 2017 at The Pavillion, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center also in this city wherein Dr. Recita Roa, president of the foundation, is expected to give her message.
