PHILIPPINE NURSES ASSOCIATION
OF OREGON & WASHINGTON
In February 2008, some of the members from the Philippine Nurses Association of Oregon & Washington chapter traveled to Imugan, Nueva Viscaya in the Philippines to perform a medical mission.
The day after our relief mission, we also visited the under construction-Nazareth Orphanage in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija and brought 145 packed lunch for the children. A heartfelt thank you to Maria Susi's family for coordinating the cooking, packing and delivering these lunches to the site. It was great seeing these children smile! They loved the spaghetti and all sorts of chocolates from the USA.
With the generous donation of Magno-Humphries Laboratory, we handed bottles of chewable vitamins for them and white linens for their "new beds to be". What a worthwhile cause! And yes, there's a lot more we can do to this group of children.

On March, 2013, our group was hosted by the generosity of Dr. and Dra. Ronald Esteban* in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija. After an all day of sorting, counting and labeling medications from Costco, PNAOW members were transported to two areas which have the most less fortunate families. We performed our "Free Clinic" and distributed relief goods to 250 families.
