Korean Medical Mission Is Welcomed by Talakag Residents

A Korean group from Bethel Church, Korea were in town to conduct a Medical Mission organised by the Immanuel Mission Mindanao Churches led by Rev Eun Seo. They were assisted by the Local Government Unit.

Talakag residents gathered at the Town Plaza Covered Court to receive free medical and health services from Korean Doctors, Nurses, Surgeons, Dentists, Opticians and Pharmacists. Patients, whilst waiting for their turn, were entertained by Korean musicians, artists and dancers. Activities prepared for the children included balloon modelling, face-painting and picture-framing. Those in need of some pampering only were offered free Korean-style manicures.

There was something for everyone, from consultations, tooth extraction, surgery, free reading glasses and medicines, to free manicures, entertainment and even snacks.

Here’s a big thank you to our new Korean friends and we wish them safe journey back to Korea.


  1. Saludo talaga ako sa mga organizations na ganyan. Yung mga tumutulong. And to think they're foreigners pa :) What nice news naman :)

  2. @ Mindanaoan - Yes indeed! We're fortunate that they picked Talakag.
