Medical outreach goes to Little Panay

Davao City (29 July) -- A 13-year old girl was chilling when she reached the barangay hall of Little Panay to avail of the recent Medical Outreach of the City Government of Panabo.

Relamay Tucmo had fever and headache for one week before she was checked by City Health Officer Dr. Emelda Bendijo. Her parent said that they were afraid to go to the hospital since they do not have the money for the doctor's fee and for her medications. If the medical outreach team did not go to Little Panay, the family might do nothing for Relamay's illness.

Because of the lack of the facilities in the area, Relamay was advised by Dr. Bendijo to go to the health center to further check its vitalities.

Relamay's family, along with the residents of the barangay, has thanked Mayor Jose L. Silvosa, Sr. for bringing the medical team in their barangay.

Poverty was the main reason why Mayor Silvosa, Sr. tries to reach out to every single household in the city in its need in medical, dental and even in rice supply.

The medical outreach team is currently concentrating on reaching the far-flung barangays, since the residents lacks the resources for regular check-up in a private hospital or clinic. (PIA XI) [top]
