According to its President Mr. John Chiong, Kasanag as a foundation will continue its advocacy in providing free medical services to all sectors of society giving priority to the less fortunate members of our society especially in rural areas. He added that their foundation has been in existence for quite a long time and they rendered so many medical missions in many areas of Negros Island Region. And of course they give due recognition to the Philippine Army who in one way on another assists them in attaining their goal. Aside from medical mission Kasanag also has a lot of livelihood programs in the countryside that help the poorest of the poor of the community.* (Manny Canto)
