Most of these soldiers also endured the infamous 140 km Bataan Death March to Camp O'Donnell in Tarlac.

  • World Health Day

    World Health Day

    7 April marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration aimed to spark awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization. Over the past 50 years this celebration has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and childcare, and climate change.

    All countries were hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, but its impact and consequences has been tougher on more vulnerable communities. This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is inviting us to join a new campaign to "build a fairer, healthier world."
