MEDICAL AID

  1. Anti-Dengue and Anti-Rodent Control. A few weeks ago, Mr. Perry M. Calara, Executive Director of Syngenta Foundation, Inc., has been kind enough to share with us their final report on their anti-dengue and anti-rodent control activity in Culiat, Quezon City. This comes at an opportune time when leptospirosis is rampant in our city, as a result of the floods that have happened due to the recent typhoons.Per Mr. Calara:

    “Only during the rehabilitation phase after Ondoy and Pepeng, we are offering the anti-dengue “resource” at a 50% discount. In addition, we can in essence give the community based anti-rodent control assistance (technical and community organizing) in mitigating their rodents problem in relation with their leptospirosis. We are coordinating this with NGOs, Local Government Units, DOH, and other key stakeholders in the community.At present we are already coordinating with a sitio in Malanday and Tumana both in Marikina; Manggahan, Pasig; and Bagbag in QC.

    If you know of any organization or LGUs who are interested in this project please do not hesitate to call them. They will respond to you immediately. They are offering to assist in community organizing for a sustained anti-dengue activity, plus a 50% discount on organized communities doing anti-dengue activities (until January).
