November 10, 2006, Barangay Sapa II, Rosario, Cavite - More than 1,000  patients registered during Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone's Medical/Dental Mission held last November 10 at Barangay Sapa II in Rosario, Cavite. Organized by RC CEPZ led by Leader President Amy Llave, the mission was conducted with members of the Rotaract Club of Cavite Economic Zone led by President Jay Almorado, Rotaract Club of Cavite State University-Rosario led by President Christian Reyes and Interact Club of Rosario National High School led by its President Luis Llarena and in cooperation with Cavite Governor Ayong Maliksi who donated medicines with volunteer doctors and dentists on hand. Governor Ayong also provided an X-Ray mobile courtesy of the provincial government. Other sponsors of the mission include Rosario Mayor Renato Abutan, Board Member Raffy Rodriguez, Board Member Louie Pagtakhan, Board Member Jun del Rosario and Provincial Health Officer Dra. Vilma Diez.

Board Members Louie Pagtakhan and Raffy Rodriguez came by to witness the successful conduct of the mission with Dr. Pagtakhan treating a few patients himself. Atty. Raffy Rodriguez who commended the participation of the Rotaractors and Interactors donated the food for all the staff including the barangay officials who helped in the mission led by Barangay Chairman of Sapa II Edgardo Cupino. Due to lack of physicians, the number of patients served was limited to only around 700. Dental treatment was also limited to only 100 due to lack of medicine.
