Jan 12, 2018 @ 15:58

Residents from Balacbac town in Palawan affected by recent calamities received mosquito nets soaked in a Long Lasting Insecticide from Kilusan Ligtas Malaria (KLM).

The KLM distributed 250 mosquito nets last December right after the tropical storm Vinta hit the province.

Aileen B. Balderian, program manager of KLM, said that it was one of the services of the Palawan government under the Provincial Health Office (PHO) for the residents affected by the storm.

Aside from the mosquito nets, the PHO also continues free consultation for children, distribution of free medicines and health awareness campaign for Balacbac residents.

“Sa kasalukuyan ay nagpapatuloy ang mga programa ng KLM sa buong lalawigan na may layuning maibaba pa ang kaso ng mga nagkakasakit ng malaria sa Palawan ngayong taon. Malaki rin ang pasasalamat niya kay Gob. Jose Ch. Alvarez dahil sa inilaang pondo para sa KLM ngayong taon 2018 na nagkakahalaga ng mahigit P4 milyon na siyang magpapatuloy at magpapalawak sa implementasyon ng programa,” the province said.

Balderian also thanked its partner agencies for the continued support to the KLM’s programs.

“Nagpaabot rin ng pasasalamat si Gng. Balderian sa mga ahensiyang patuloy na sumusuporta sa mga adhikain at programa ng KLM partikular na ang Pilipinas Shell Foundation Inc, (PSFI) na malaking itinutulong sa Pamahalaang Panlalawigan upang tuluyang maibaba ang kaso ng malaria sa Palawan,” said the province.
