“Ito po ay taun-taon na natin ginagawa, at taun-taon din pong matagumpay ang ating programa. Maraming salamat po sa mga magulang na nagtitiwala at nagdadala ng kanilang mga anak upang mapatulian. Ganun din po sa mga ibang ahensya at tanggapan, mga doktor, nurse at health worker na laging handang makipagtulungan sa Pamalaang Lungsod sa pagbibigay ng mga libreng serbisyo sa ating mga kababayan,” said Ynares.

The young boys were algo given free medicines and supplies for their home medication.

According to the CHO, it is necessary for the parents and the patients to follow the instructions in cleaning of the wound to prevent infections and complications.
