Guam - In a matter of days, the Guam Medical Association will launch its first wave of aid to assist those who were affected by Supertyphoon Yolanda in the Philippines.
Leading the medical mission is Dr. Hoa Nguyen. He said, "Not everybody will see us but one life we touch could make a big difference. It's a long day but it's a mission. A few years ago after the typhoon we spent 13 hours working but there's a lot of hype and no complain of fatigue so we will have a good time there."
Dr. Nguyen says doctors can expect to see close to 10,000 patients per day.
The first wave of aid is expected to leave next week, with the second and third waves schedule for December and January.
GMA is working with the Philippine Red Cross, MedPharm, St. Luke's, and United Airlines to make the mission trip possible.
