What this Dentist has been doing for 12 years is unbelievable!

Since I started Blogging in the year 2007, I promised to put this passion into good use. I started the Bloggers Social Responsibility as Cebu Bloggers Society's version of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Since then, other organizations from different Countries had started following it. But this is not about CBS. I'm giving this special highlight to Cebu's amazing Dentists.

Last Sunday, I finally joined my friend Dentist, Doctor Xavier Solis and couple of his friends and volunteers for a Dental Mission at Caohagan Elementary School as he celebrated his Birthday. This school is situated in a very small island near Lapu-Lapu and is part of Olango Island Group. Why giving this basic information? I just want to share how difficult for our brothers and sisters from that Island in terms of necessities such as medical, education (High School, Senior High School, College) , drinking water and other essentials. Some of the people earn money from fishing. That's why they could not buy other needs such as wearing good clothes or protection from the harmful and dirty ground - yes, I saw children wearing nothing - barefooted. It broke my heart thinking some of City Millenials' problems are like "what to wear" or "what coffee shops are they going to lounge for their "studies"" which ended up disturbing their neighboring tables with their noice pollution. Very sad indeed! That's why I'm giving Doctor Solis and his friends a good feature in my blog. People like them are very hard to find.

I once asked Doc. Solis why celebrate your birthday in an island with a Dental mission? I know it's a simple question but I just wanted to know his personal reasons. "It's a truly HAPPY birthday when you share your happiness to the community." he answered briefly. And to my surprise he added "To be honest I don't like sharing what I'm doing because I believe that doing good don't need to be sensationalized in social media." Now, that's how a true Charity Works!

Since 2005, Doc. Solis started the Dental Mission with the help of his friends from Solis Dental Care Clinic and Dental City Center For Smile. And just last year, he decided to start giving back to the community every during his birthday week in a form of Dental Service such as free tooth extraction while some volunteers are giving away educational supplies to Students. Unbelievable that a good Dentist has been doing it for 12 years already! Kudos to Doc. Solis and the rest of his friends and volunteers!
