Tupi-RHU,Mahintana introduce new health thrust to Tupinians PDF Print E-mail

Igniting change in sanitation behaviour among Tupinians is Tupi’s current health core.

Earlier today, the Municipality of Tupi- Rural Health Unit in partnership with Mahintana Incorporated launches the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) Training of Facilitators at Municipal Hall, October 21.

Thirty (30) participants composed of barangay officials, sitio and purok leaders, Day Care teachers and Barangay Health Workers (BHW) of Brgy Bololmala and Cebuano have started today their four-day training that includes series of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) and interactive workshops.

Invited resource speaker Engr. Danny Pelias, of LGU-Polomolok will be presenting integrated approach to achieving and sustaining Open Defecation Free (ODF) status.

The Program Evaluator Officer is further tasked to encourage the participants of the utilization of participative rural assessment (PRA) methods that would enable their respective communities to analyze their sanitation conditions and collectively internalize the terrible impact of Open Defecation (OD) on public health and on the entire neighbourhood environment.

Apart from the initiative of sponsoring Zumba session & conducting Road Safety Trainers Training in LGU-Tupi, Mahintana also provides assistance to Community Sanitation Empowerment.

‘This program wish to lessen the Open Defecation statistics and decrease the number of households without toilet here in your municipality’, said by Margie Managuit, Mahintana Health Project Coordinator.

Spontaneous emergence of Natural Leaders (NL’s) and local innovations of low cost toilet models using locally available materials were among the significant steps under CLTS program.

‘Dole Philippines Incorporated, in fact, pledges to distribute toilet bowls to the identified community here’, added by Managuit while latrine construction (labor) will be considered as the community's counterpart.

At the end of the CLTS training, the participants will be deemed trainers themselves who will be tasked to facilitate the same approach to primarily address Open Defecation on their respective communities until OD Free (ODF) status is achieved.

Open Defecation is the practice of passing faeces outside a latrine or toilet, or in a natural environment (open field, body of water, etc) and leaving the faecal matter exposed which is responsible to contamination of water supply sources and unsightly conditions and foul odors, a definite nuisance to any community.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Binay visits Tupi Resettlement Area, vows for add’l 100 housing units PDF Print E-mail

Vice President Jejomar Binay, who chairs the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC), lauded the distinctive housing program of Mayor Reynaldo S. Tamayo, Jr., during his visit at Kalkam Resettlement Site here, on October 6.

‘Ngayon lang ako nakakita na ang bahay ay gawa sa local materials at pinamimigay ng libre’, appreciated by the country’s second highest official who was a bit shocked when informed that houses here in the Municipality of Tupi are donated to resettled families.

Binay recalled their case in housing program was quite different where homeowners there are compelled to pay the mortgages.

“Dadagdagan ng National Housing Authority (NHA) ng 100 houses, kapag nakabili na si Mayor Tamayo ng lupa”, a good news conveyed by the HUDCC chairman who believed, ‘Gaganda ang buhay kapag may sariling buhay’.

On his speech, Binay further laid down the privileges of the ‘Sisterhood Relationship’ between the City of Makati and Municipality of Tupi.

He said that a sister municipality/city is entitled to free education, hospitalization and computer program, among others.

Congressman Sherwin Gatchalian, who was with Binay, aired the same sentiments as that of the vice president regarding the ‘Libreng Pabahay’.

‘Edukasyon ang solusyon upang maiangat ang pamilya sa kahirapan’, stressed by the legislator.

Present in the momentous event who warmly welcomed Binay were Tupi Mayor Tamayo, Vice Mayor Valentin G. Mariano Jr and Sangguniang Members, Barangay Chairmen, RD Reynaldo Tamayo Sr-DPWH XII, HUDCC Usec Alba, Rolando Perez of NHA, Alpha Phi Omega Bro & Sis, and resettled families.

‘Labis kaming nagagalak sa 100 na bahay na ibibigay ng NHA’, expressed gratefully by Mayor Tamayo telling Binay, ‘Ituloy mo lang ang laban- ang pagbigay ng serbisyo sa mga Pilipino’.

Meanwhile, Binay preferred his lunch to be served simple, thus joined the rest of Tupinians in a boodlefight.
