NGO spearheads clinic for malnourished kids

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lagawe, Ifugao (16 September) -- About 156 severely malnourished children in the province were given free clinic and malnutrition education intervention last September 14 at the Lagawe Central School Gymnasium here.

Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator Engr. Carmelita Buyuccan said the activity was undertaken by the Malnutrition Alert Ifugao, Inc. (MAII), a non-government organization that helps local government units in the management and rehabilitation of malnutrition cases in collaboration with the provincial government.

Doctors led by MAII President, Dr. Felix Ayahao, volunteered their services to do comprehensive physical examination for the said children. Volunteers from the different sectors assisted in taking the weight, height of the children and giving free medicines while staff from the Provincial Sustainable and Development Office conducted games to mothers.

"The results of the examinations would be the basis in formulating rehabilitation plans for the malnourished children," Buyuccan said.

Meanwhile, Provincial Administrator Guillermo Tadao praised the organization for coming up with the activity. "Malnutrition is not a family problem, rather it is a community concern. We therefore need the concerted effort of everybody to address it because it will indicate the future families of Ifugao," he said.

This is the first activity of the MAII which was organized last May 2010. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
