Written by LGU PRO/J.VillamilSince 2005, Anthony Mendoza has developed a habit, of earnestly and winningly convincing Pozorrubians in the US Midwest area to fund medical and dental missions to his hometown of Pozorrubio. He gives himself and his group, the Pozorrubians Midwest USA (PMWUSA), two years to raise enough for the purchase of medicines and miscellaneous expenses of a team of doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and volunteers for the duration of the mission.
Since then, Tony had brought home four such missions, benefiting thousands of Pozorrubians with each mission. (N.B.Unfortunately, this writer was not yet part of the local scene to have documented the first two.) Tony is son of respected Pozorrubians, educators Eulogio and La Paz Mendoza.
