BRINGING THE FREE CLINIC TO REMOTE COMMUNITIES

Partnering with the Betty Bantug Benitez Foundation, Inc. (BBBFI) and the Leisure and Resorts World Corporation (LRWC) for the conduct of free medical and dental clinics in far-flung upland and coastal barangays of the Third District, a total of 3,141 beneficiaries have been served.

Providing invaluable support and assistance to 10 free clinic activities were the local government units, barangay officials and volunteers from civic and professional organizations.

ARMING BARANGAY HEALTH WORKERS

Front runners in the delivery of basic health services in the communities are the Barangay Health Workers (BHWs) who almost always brave the sun and the rain, on call 24/7 to reach out to those in dire need.

Recognizing the BHWs dedication to their work and their need to improve services, Cong. Albee facilitated donation of Blood Pressure Apparatus to BHWs in 100 barangays in the Third District.*

The Congressional District Group facilitates the pay-out of the various assistance to indigent constituents through
the Provincial/City/Municipal Welfare Departments of the province and the Third District LGUs. The January-
February 2016 pay-out for 344 qualified beneficiaries totaled to Php 2,927,600.00.
