DAVAO CITY – The Gabriela Women’s Party ended Saturday the International Women’s Month celebration with two simultaneous medical missions in Davao City and Davao del Sur province in southern Philippines.
The humanitarian missions were held in poor communities in Matina Crossing in Davao City and in Sta. Cruz town in Davao del Sur.
The group organized the medical missions to culminate the International Women’s Month in order to highlight the health issues of women, it said in a statement sent to the Mindanao Examiner.
The Gabriela party list said women health, among others, is oftentimes sacrificed by Filipino mothers to give way to other needs of their families.
Some 100 women participants attended the two missions.
