Dec 4
Barangay Lamanoc in municipality Merida, island of Leyte
HuMA examined 122 patients with the efforts of nurses deployed from Merida Rural Health Unit. The nurses always keep a smile on thier face, although some of them still don't have roofs and electricity at their houses because of the typhoon disaster. We do admire their strength and appreciate very much the support from them.
