The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) continues to assist Davao Penal Colony in Panabo, Davao del Norte which started last November 10, 2021.
The Diarrhea Outbreak in Davao Penal Colony, is the fourth outbreak in Davao this 2021. PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon immediately deploys the water tankers to provide clean and potable water to ensure the safety of the residents.
“Laging nakahanda ang ating mga water tankers at water bladder upang makapag bigay ng malinis at ligtas na tubig sa mga naapektuhan ng Diarrhea Outbreak. Apat na beses na nangyari ang Outbreak sa Davao kaya naman layunin ng Philippine Red Cross na iinform ang mga tao sa proper water sanitation, and hygiene,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.
To date, PRC has distributed 73,000 liters of water, installed 1 water bladder, and distributed 1,500 leaflets on health information dissemination to the residents.
