Over the course of just a couple of days, the Alegado Foundation worked alongside sixteen local agencies and several dedicated volunteers to orchestrate an all-in-one mission that served hundreds of people in the remote area of Sapa-Sapa. From minor surgeries, to personal care workshops, to consultation services and care package distribution, the mission united many communities of southern Philippines in promoting access to healthcare and educational resources for all.
