Mayor Beng Climaco has recently been recognized for her support and participation in breast wellness and breast cancer awareness initiatives in the city.

In a letter dated September 16, Ciudad Medical Zamboanga Chief Executive Officer Atty. Jhihann Hairun-Natividad and Medical Doctor Filipinas Rojo expressed gratitude to the city chief executive for supporting their initiatives, particularly its CMZ BRA (Bra to Raise Awareness) Campaign which aimed to promote understanding on breast wellness and breast cancer in the city.

The medical center was bestowed HMA 2015 Gold Award (Grand Prize) for Corporate Social Responsibility by the Hospital Management Asia (HMA) for its CMZ BRA Campaign in a formal ceremony held on September 4 at the Sedona Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar. The project bested 70 other CSR entries from 12 Asian countries.

Since it was launched in 2014, the CMZ BRA Campaign has been intensified and extended to barangays and schools through an offshoot project dubbed as BRAngay (BReast Awareness for the neighborhoods, groups, associations and the youth) Project. — Claudine Uniana
