The city government of Calapan has launched the “Gold Card” program which provides free monthly supply of maintenance medicines for senior citizens.

Mayor Arnan Panaligan led the launching program yesterday, which would particularly benefit those who are suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure.

“Malaki ang tulong ng programang ito para sa mga mahihirap na senior citizens na kailangan ng maintenance medicines para sa mga karaniwang karamdaman ng mga matatanda tulad ng high blood at diabetes,” the city government said.

The city said that it wants to uplift the lives of the senior citizens who can no longer work by providing them medicines.

“This program is an example of how the City Government shows its care and compassion for the poor, the needy and the elderly members of society,” the city said.
