The Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) Company yesterday turned over to the City Government its initial batch of medicine supply in support of the City Government’s continuing thrust and advocacy for health.

Mayor Beng Climaco gratefully accepted the 39 boxes of medicine from personnel of the PLDT at City Hall. The chief executive disclosed that the medicines will be utilized in the medical and dental outreach missions conducted in the Dia de Alcalde program, a service oriented caravan spearheaded regularly by Climaco along with City Government teams.

The donated medicines form part of the partnership between the City Government and the PLDT, whose team will be accompanying the Dia de Alcalde caravan beginning Friday, September 4, in six barangays identified as critical areas to perform community outreach activities and information advocacy.

The information advocacy is also intended to prevent communities from accidentally cutting into and damaging PLDT’s fiber optic lines which provide the City its internet connection. — Jasmine Mohammadsali
