A Church in the Philippines makes 3 Guinness World Records

Iglesia ni Cristo (INC)  A non-Catholic Church of Christ broke three Guinness health world records in 8 hours one event in Parola, Manila.

The whole day health mission of Iglesia ni Cristo's (INC), sponsored by the Felix Manalo Foundation to celebrate INC's 98th year in Manila's depressed area on July 7, 2012 broke 3 Guinness world records, Guinness official adjudicator Tarika Vara said.

About 4,128 people in Parola, Tondo underwent dental health check, which beat India's record of 3,377, said Vara.

About 8,026 residents were given blood pressure reading, which beat the 7,203 record of Kuwait Heart Foundation, which was achieved on October 28, 2011, said Vara.

At the same time, 5,217 residents underwent numerous blood glucose level (BGL) tests, beating the 3,573 record achieved by the Novo Nordisk Education Foundation in Bangalore, India, on November 13, 2011, said Vara.

About 200 doctors, 600 paramedics, hundreds of nurses and other volunteers participated in the eight-hour medical mission.

The medical mission extended X-ray, ultrasound, 2D-echo and laboratory services, apart from putting up temporary 10 hospital beds for minor surgeries.

INC also distributed medicines and wheelchairs to Parola's residents, including 50,000 bags with rice, noodles, and canned goods.

About 100,000 people who live in nearby depressed areas in Tondo also flocked to Parola where the medical mission was held.

"This was truly extraordinary…. I have truly not seen anything like this not just as a representative of Guinness world record, but in my life," said Vara, after she and INC general auditor Glicerio B. Santos Jr, finished the tally.

INC's victory was also a victory for the Philippines, said Vara.

Some 5,000 residents were displaced by fire at Parola's Isla Puting Bato last month.
