MANILA, Philippines —  Sen. Bong Go inspected the construction of a Super Health Center in Hermosa, Bataan the other day before he provided assistance to displaced workers in the town.

“Ang inyong Super Health Center dito po sa Hermosa, malapit nang matapos. Kanina yung sa Samal, tapos na... mas mailalapit natin ang serbisyo medikal sa ating mga kababayan,” Go, who attended the turnover of a Super Health Center in Samal, Bataan earlier that day, said.

Eight Super Health Centers have been funded in Bataan to help bring primary care, medical consultations and early disease detection closer to communities.

Go distributed grocery packs, snacks, vitamins, face masks, shirts and balls for basketball and volleyball to 500 displaced workers in the town.

Select beneficiaries received a bicycle, mobile phone, shoes and a watch.

Eligible beneficiaries were granted temporary work opportunities through the Department of Labor and Employment’s Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers or TUPAD program.

Barangay health workers from Hermosa were given snacks and grocery packs.

Go, chairperson of the Senate committee on health and demography, urged those facing health challenges to avail themselves of the services offered by Malasakit Centers at the Bataan General Hospital and Medical Center in Balanga City and Mariveles Mental Wellness and General Hospital.
