Caridad Tadle of Sitio Lawaan, together with her daughters and grandchildren, were among those who benefited from the clinic.

"Among nabalitaan nga adunay medical mission diri para sa mga Mansaka pero namasin gihapon mi nga pati kami nga dili mga mansaka ang makabenipisyo pud. Dako kaayo ni nga tabang kay mahal baya ang mga tambal karon. Pasalamat mi nga gilista mi og apil" (We've heard that there will be a medical mission here (exclusively) for the Mansaka tribe but we took our chance, though we're not members of the tribe, we're hopeful that we could also avail. Medicines today are expensive so this is a big help. We're grateful that they accommodated us), Caridad said.

Interviewed over Radyo Pantukan, Celso Magcantara, a tribal council member, expressed how glad he was that the clinic intended to service his tribe was finally realized.

"Daghan sa atong mga kaigsoonan nga lumad ang naghandom gayud og susama niini nga serbisyo kay tungod ang pagpadoktor karon dili lalim, mahal ang tambal ug wala na sa ilang budget ang pagpalit og tambal alang sa ilang balatian. Dako kaayo ni nga tabang alang kanila. Maski kadtong mga dili Mansaka ang atoa usab gipaserbisyohan"(Many of our tribal brothers yearn for this service because going to the doctor (for checkups) is not that easy. Medicine is expensive and they don't have money to spend for it. Even the non-Mansakas were accommodated.)

"We're so happy that our local government and the King-king Copper-Gold Project supported us on this one", Magcantara said.

Mr. Jonathan Ba?ez of the Community Development Unit of the KCGP said: "We have done several free medical missions in the past and we are truly grateful for this opportunity of being relevant partners in the health care of our community. We will continue to harness this chance in assisting our Indigenous People (and non-IP's) to build better lives. KCGP is fortunate to be an essential part of Pantukan's future", Ba?ez added.
