SAS­MUAN— Res­i­dents of this town have been con­tribut­ing money and other re­sources to help al­most 100 res­i­dents who were af­fected by the de­mo­li­tion in Barangay San An­to­nio.

The af­fected res­i­dents have found tem­po­rary shel­ter in a site of the town’s old ma­te­ri­als re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity.

This was ac­cord­ing to Mayor Nardo Ve­lasco who said on Mon­day that the af­fected res­i­dents were al­lowed to tem­po­rary make shel­ter in the old ma­te­ri­als re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity with the help of fr i ends.

Those af­fected were re­port­edly dis­placed by the de­mo­li­tion of 16 houses in Barangay San Ant oni o.

It was stated in Mem­o­ran­dum Cir­cu­lar No. 001 se­ries of 2018, that the BHW pedi­cab ben­e­fi­cia­ries are en­joined to fol­low guide­lines such as only reg­is­tered and ac­cred­ited BHWs can use the pedi­cab; pedi­cabs shall only be used by BHWs in per­form­ing their of­fi­cial du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties (house to house vis­its, re­fer­rals) and dur­ing health re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties in the barangay.

Lo­cal gov­ern­ment units’BHWs are re­spon­si­ble for the main­te­nance of the pedi­cabs and th­ese should be parked at the health fa­cil­ity where the BHWs are re­port­ing.

Fur­ther­more, Fe Ocampo, PHO mid­wife IV, said the ve­hi­cles will be used in mon­i­tor­ing dengue cases, fa­cil­i­tate in look­ing for sick barangay folks, weigh­ing of chil­dren and adults, vac­ci­na­tion of chil­dren, dis­tri­bu­tion of vi­ta­mins and other re­lated med­i­cal pur­poses for the ben­e­fit of ka­balens.

Mean­while, Ado­ra­cion Dabu, a BHW from Ru­ral Health Unit III in Guagua thanked Gover­nor Pineda, for the pro­vi­sion of pedi­cabs be­cause ac­cord­ing to her, they can now eas­ily per­suade sick ka­balens to go to the ru­ral health unit for check­ups.
