The program started last June 2017 in partnership with the St. Peter Calungsod Realty Development Corporation in Angeles City as their main sponsor and stakeholder- partner.
The Dental Mission Program dubbed as “A Beautiful Smile Starts A Better Day” caters 4 students per day, conducted in 2 batches per week with a minimum of PHP 1,400 allocated budget per student.
The student beneficiaries are from Nabunturan Central Elementary School (NCES) in coordination with Mrs. Rosario A. Moñeza the school principal and in partnership with Ms. April Quil L. Secuya, DMD Dentist and owner of the Dental Clinic.
According to PSupt Clark, in a week there were 8 students who benefited for the free dental services with corresponding amount paid by the sponsor and they also availed of discounts with their partner clinic.
He added that the program is part of the best practices and activities of the CVPMFC to showcase the government’s initiatives and flagship programs.
“Natutuwa tayo at nagiging instrument tayo sa programang ito to win the hearts and the minds of the people especially our children considering that they are our future leaders,” said Clark.
Meanwhile, aside from the dental mission they also offer a scholarship program dubbed as “Adopt a Student Program” with the campaign line “Edukasyon Handog Sa Batang May Pangarap” which intends to build and strengthen collaborative partnership between the police and the community as an important tool for the effective delivery of basic services to the citizenry.
Clark explained that the scholarship program is for the selected and poor but deserving elementary student in different schools.
“The funds we used for the program comes from our different stakeholders. Our part is just to facilitate and implement the program. Yung iba naman na ibinibigay natin sa mga estudyante is nanggaling mismo sa mga bulsa ng ating mga kapulisan, nag aambag-ambag yung mga personnel natin para may maibigay na pang baon sa ating mga estudyante,” Clark added.
Moreover, they also conduct a bloodletting program in partnership with the Philippine National Red Cross Nabunturan Chapter were the CVPMFC personnel volunteers to donate blood to save lives.
“Our main goal is to win the hearts and minds of the people, through this program this will help restore public trust and confidence towards the PNP,” Clark ended. (Rey Antibo, ID Comval)
