This time, it was the Tabaco City’s turn to be assisted by the Provincial Government of Albay through its medical mission for evacuees still reeling from the eruptive activities of Mt. Mayon.

Last Valentine’s day, the Provincial Government of Albay, through Albay Friendly Basic Health Care providers brought medical services to the 1,947 evacuees of Barangay Comom who are temporarily residing in Tabaco Northwest Central School.

The Department of Health (DOH) and the Barangay Health Workers were hand in hand in assisting the medical mission.

“Evacuees were provided free consultations and checkups regarding their dental, optical, and clinical health. Free medicines and correcting/ reading glasses were also given to them,” the provincial government said.

“The DOH has listed the 5 top causes of consultations for February being cough and colds, rashes, mouth sores, lacerated wounds, and toothaches. So far, there are no reported casualties from the evacuees,” it added.

The provincial government also expressed their gratitude to public and private sectors who extended help to the evacuees.

“The Provincial Information Office (PIO) handed out calendars to the evacuees as well,” Albay province said.

The provincial government has been conducting series of medical missions among local government units to help the evacuees.

Alert Level 4 remains in effect in Mayon Volcano.
