BARMM lawmaker grants P1.5M to IPHO for Lanao del Sur health outreach

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)--A Member of the Parliament (MP) in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao handed over a P1.5 million check to the Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO) here in support of its medical outreach endeavors.

MP Paisalin Tago said the amount was earmarked to procure essential medical supplies and materials crucial for a series of planned health outreach initiatives throughout the year.

Tago explained that MPs are allocated resources specifically for medical outreach programs, aiming to address the healthcare requirements of their constituents. "Ito ayon sa kagustuhan ni Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim na kaming mga Member of Parliament dapat bumaba sa grassroots para matulungan ang ating mga kababayan," he noted.

[This is according to the desire of Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim that we, as Members of Parliament, should go down to the grassroots to help our constituents.]

Last year, Tago organized a medical outreach in Marawi. This year, he intends to extend the impact to municipalities. He envisions conducting these health initiatives quarterly in collaboration with IPHO-Lanao del Sur.

This commitment was echoed by IPHO Chief Dr. Alinader Minalang, confirming the scheduling of four medical outreach programs and the ongoing identification of areas for implementation. 

"Gusto natin pasalamatan si Minister Paisalin Tago sa kanyang tulong na ipinaabot. Itong tulong na binigay niya in the form of funds, supplies, at materials, ito ay gagamitin natin sa ating medical outreach program," Minalang expressed gratitude.

[We want to thank Minister Paisalin Tago for his assistance. We will utilize the aid in the form of funds, supplies, and materials for our medical outreach program.]

In addition to the financial support, MP Tago handed over medical supplies and 20 wheelchairs during the turnover ceremony, aligning with IPHO's medical mission in celebration of the 5th Bangsamoro Foundation Day.

The medical mission offered a range of free services, including medical consultations, medication dispensing, surgical procedures, vaccinations, child immunizations, and family planning services, among others. (APB/PIA Lanao del Sur)
