The Philippine Health Insurance (Philhealth) Regional Office-9  is celebrating their 22nd Anniversary with several activities lined up to serve the public.

This year’s theme is anchored on the theme: “ Challenged by change, Empowered by unity.”

The series of activities started with a mass followed by a blood donation event together with the Philippine Red Cross where 26 bags of blood were collected.

The agency is also planning to hold a gift giving activity at a local orphanage and a hospital visit in Zamboanga del Norte this March.

Zamboanga del Norte was chosen by the agency due to the needs of the patients in the area.

“We ask our members to continue to support the program of Philhealth.  We are here to serve the needy, especially the poor and the sick,” said Bryan Jabay, Philhealth 9 Information Officer.
