Hadiya villagers convey gratitude to CFSI, CHO, PSA

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)--Residents of Hadiya Village were grateful for the services provided to them through an outreach program conducted by Community and Family Services International (CFSI) together with the City Health Office (CHO) and the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). Abdul Jalil Madid, president of Hadiya Village, said he is grateful for their area being chosen as the beneficiary of the program. He said it is a big help for them, especially since most of them do not have a job yet. "Alam niyo na ang mga residente ng permanent shelter karamihan dito walang trabaho, naghahanap pa. 'Yung magiging gastos nila sa ibang pangangailangan nila hindi na nila magagasto dahil makaka avail na sila dito ng libre," he further said. (You know that most of the residents of the permanent shelter here are unemployed and still looking for work. They will not be able to spend what they will spend on other needs because they can avail themselves here for free) He added that this is really a big help because they don't have to go to the town or to the Amai Pakpak hospital. Maded also cited their problem with transportation. The transportation costs are quite high, so at least they save on transportation. Another beneficiary, Ibralyn Macaraguit, could not hide her joy when she heard about the CFSI community outreach program because she can finally have her son checked up for free. She also availed herself of a nutrition service that is one of CHO's offerings for malnourished children. Ibralyn was happy as she received free medicines and vitamins for her son. Some of the services offered by the CHO are maternal and family planning, dental care, nutrition, TB Dots, and COVID-19 immunization. They also gave five kilograms of rice to those who received the COVID-19 vaccine. The residents also conveyed their thanks to the PSA for coming to their place, as most of them do not have a National Identification (ID) card yet. They say this is a big deal for them, especially since an ID card is important for transactions. "Maraming tulong po ito sa amin kasi po kaming walang trabaho wala po kaming ini-expect na mga employee ID. So itong PhilSys ID na ito malaking tulong po ito sa amin. Malaking tulong itong pagpunta nila dito, kasi malayo kami sa town. So itong pagpunta nila sa amin parang nakalibre kami sa pamasahe," said Annie Panda. (This is a lot of help to us because we are unemployed and we don't expect any employee ID. So this PhilSys ID is a big help to us. It is a big help for them to come here because we are far from the town. With their coming here, we were able to save our fare). (JND/PIA Lanao del Sur)
