ACHIEVEMENT is, to spend life for something which outlasts it. It's by William James, a psychologist.
Nakakalungkot pong isipin na despite ng pagsulong ng ating munting bayan na dati rati'y inaccessible, napakalayo, baku-bakong daan at walang kuryente ngunit ngayon ay (halos) sementado na buong bayan, well-lit at maraming bagong building o renovated; marami pa rin sa ating mga kabihug (kababayan) ang nabubuhay sa kahirapan. At dahil sa pagnanais na mapagkasya ang kinikita sa pang araw-araw na pangangailangan, almost always ang kanilang kalusugan ang kanilang napapabayaan.
Mabuti na lang, marami rin sa ating mga kabihug ang hindi nakakalimot lumingon sa kanilang pinang galingan, kahit pa napakalayo na ng kanilang narating.
Last July 2009, isang grupo ang nagsagawa ng medical mission sa ating bayan, it's called CAPALONGA USA CONNECTION (CUSAC), mainly consisted of mga tubong Capalonga.
Below are some of the pictures taken during the event, we can just see how overwhelming the response of our kababayans in the outreach. Sana marami pang mga events na ganito ang maganap na ang makikinabang ay ang ating mga less fortunate kababayans/kabihugs. (or maybe include the real Bihugs next time?)
Enjoy the photos, word of caution though, some are a little graphic. Please click the photo for a much larger image.

Eto, duguan na ang usapan dito
Si Dr Boy na ba ang nawawalang Dr Fermo na hinahanap ni Nurse Jupson?
Nag-opera pa sila, ang galing!
Hindi sapat ang isang pirasong papel upang pasalamatan kayo sa inyong ginawa. Ang inyong tulong ay magiging/naging bahagi ng mga buhay ng mga taong nasa plaza ng araw na yon. MABUHAY kayo!
Maraming salamat po kay Jude Fermo Abiera for sharing the pictures. She still has more of the images from the event, if you want to see, click on her facebook photo album HERE or follow through HERE. She also posted the event in her Friendster, you can view it HERE.
Your comments/feedback are highly appreciated, the pictures that you share are even more appreciated. Remember, we can bridge the gap, even just from a single photo.
Salamat po sa inyong lahat.
The medical mission was funded by the Fermo clan headed by Mrs Vilma Fermo Jeffries from the USA, and they are planning another one next year. Who's up for some volunteering, guys? Anyway, I do not have the information (as of today) of who to contact in case the plan pushed through, but Jude Fermo Abiera who shared us these heart warming photos will surely inform us when the time comes. If Mrs Vilma has an FB, can you hook us up to her so we'll be informed, or at least extend her our warmest gratitude?
We are so proud to have people like you extending your good fortune to everyone, to Capalogueños, particularly. And kudos too to all who volunteered that day. We might not be able to name all of you, nor post pictures of all those who helped, but I think the people you helped that day will have your helping hand etched in their hearts forever. As mentioned above, a piece of paper is not enough to tell you how grateful everybody is (never was).
Good job! Mabuhay po kayo.
