“Ang gusto natin, inklusibo ang ating pag go-gobyerno na kabahagi ang bawat mamamayan, mayaman man o mahirap, maging ang mga may kapansanan at mga nasa lansangan ay ating mapaglilingkuran (What we want is an inclusive government that includes every citizen, whether rich or poor, even the disabled and those on the streets),” Malapitan said.

“Kaya’t sisikapin nating bigyan din ng karampatang serbisyo ang ating mga kababayan sa kulungan, lalo na kung para ito sa kanilang kalusugan at iba pang aspetong medikal (So we will also try to provide appropriate services to our citizens in prison, especially if it is for their health and other medical aspects),” he added.

CCMC Administrator Dr. Fernando Santos said the PDLs received free consultation on their general health and possible skin diseases such as eczema, scabies and boils, among others. They also distributed free medicine and facilitated laboratory assessments.

Meanwhile, the city government also conducted a medical mission in Villa Alicia Phase 1, in Barangay 171, where the residents received different health services such as free electrocardiogram tests, fasting blood sugar (FBS), and blood typing.
