ZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE- More than a hundred residents took part in ABS CBN's Kalusugan Patrol in Dipolog City.

Doctors from the Corazon C. Aquino Hospital conducted free medical and dental check-up for residents of Sitio Tambak, Barangay Minaog in Dipolog City.

Some of the children have cough, colds and fever which are common during the rainy season. Residents also experienced diarrhea.

"The area is densely populated and swampy that's why children here usually have diarrhea," Barangay health nurse Cesar Disana said.

A soup kitchen was also set up for children.
