Trinidad St., San Isidro Subdivision. Pamplona, Las Piñas City on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, from 9 am to 5 pm.
The mission will be done in full cooperation with the Philippine Dental Association,

To finalize the details and logistics for the mission, Dr. Chavez worked with the PDA Las Piñas Dental Chapter and the newly assigned Christ The King Church parish priest Rev. Fr. Benjamin “Didoy” Molina, Jr. Rev. Molina provides the spiritual ministry to hundreds of people within the area of responsibility the church. Every November, during the week before the Feast Day of Christ The King, the church sponsors a mini health fair. Among the services provided are free basic and emergency dental services.
This year’s mission at the parish is the second event being done with the support of the Foundation. Judging from the success of the first one done last year, it may become an annual project for the Foundation.
