To enhance the resiliency of the Local Government Units (LGUs) and its communities in responding to emergencies, EMBRACE in partnership with the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation Inc., turned over medical equipment to Team Orbos on February 5, 2019 in Bani, Pangasinan.
Present during the turnover were former MMDA Assistant General Manager, Tim Orbos, JVOFI Project Manager, Ester Liberato, and JVOFI Project Officer, Keren Cadwising. Items such as nebulizers with nebulizer solution and digital blood pressure monitors were given. The provision aimed to assist senior citizens in Bani, Pangasinan who, like many could not afford to provide their own.
The activity embodies the strong commitment of EMBRACE to the development and growth of local communities, ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being at all ages essential to sustainable development (UNSDG 3).
