On the third day of their impactful medical mission in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, the Operation Blessing team encountered Mailin, a 37-year-old single mother, and her son Lance, 9. Mailin works tirelessly selling bananas to make ends meet, but on this particular day, their health took priority over income.

Mailin confided in the medical team about a persistent cough that had plagued her ever since receiving the COVID vaccine. The cough, she explained, fluctuated in severity but never fully disappeared.

The free medical check-up offered a glimmer of hope for Mailin. The Operation Blessing team not only provided a thorough examination but also equipped her with essential medicines, vitamins, and a hygiene kit. An additional gift, a copy of Our Daily Bread Devotionals, offered comfort and spiritual support.

Mailin’s experience echoed a sentiment shared by many in the community. “This medical mission is a great benefit for our barangay,” she expressed. “The free check-ups save us money, allowing us to use those resources for our daily needs.”

Operation Blessing’s mission transcended simply treating physical ailments. By addressing Mailin’s cough, providing essential supplies, and offering a message of hope, they empowered her to care for herself and her son, ensuring a healthier and brighter future for their family.
