Salvador O. Ferrer, resident of San Carlos City, Pangasinan, was chosen by PAMAG-Rotary Club Uptown Dagupan 2000 to receive a tribike as part of its livelihood project.  He earns a livelihood by scavenging through garbage and selling what can be recycled. Among the scavengers, he is the only one without a tribike and oftentimes he rents it to be able to haul bulky loads a long distance. Most of the scavengers are earning more than him because they have their own tribike and motorcycles.  Because of those limitations he has the least capacity to earn enough to be able to afford his own tribike. Thus providing him with a tribike will increase his productivity and his income substantially. 

Everyone in the community has a role to play and something to contribute. The scavengers help the community by going through garbage and getting recyclables while earning a living. This means less garbage in the landfill. This benefits the environment and the people. A win for everyone!

This PAMAG project was undertaken in honor of Dr Vic Bautista, former president of PAMAG.

PAMAG & Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan Dental Treatment

Oral diseases affect 3.5 billion people worldwide and the Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated this problem because it disrupted regular preventative dental visits. For the past two years, access to dental clinics became difficult for young patients and thus their oral health may have been compromised especially for those underprivileged who have less to spend on their hygiene, prolonged home containment with less physical activity.

With this concern, PAMAG and the Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan have initiated this dental treatment for 22 young children in Dagupan City. Dr. Hazel P. Alipio, an RCUD member, performed 2 procedures (pits & fissure sealant and fluoride treatment) for the children.  These provide a physical barrier that inhibits microorganisms and food particles accumulation preventing caries progression and more resistance to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.

PAMAG and the Rotary Club of Uptown  Dagupan are dedicating their efforts to improving access to quality dental care so that the children can have long-serving opportunities for a happy and healthy future. This PAMAG project is in honor of Dr Vic Bautista, past PAMAG president and a native of Dagupan.
