SUPPLEMENTAL FEEDING PROGRAM

Bagong Henerasyon has undertaken the Supplemental Feeding Program for the High-Risked Group or the Malnourished Group through an ongoing partnership with the Office of then Councilor and now Representative BH, Philippine Medical Association of Oklahoma and the Quezon City Health Department. The Health and Social Services Departments helped in identifying malnourished children ages 0 to 6 years old, and intervening through a 3-month, 5-day-a-week, sustained feeding program. This was an experimental program that we had since 2002 as suggested by the QC Health Department. Since then, thousands of malnourished children have been nourished back to health, it was hence, proven effective. To date, the the Quezon City Government has adopted this pioneering program on a city-wide scale.

 

BAGONG HENERASYON MOBILE CLINIC

Bagong Henerasyon launched in February 2007 its newest medical masterpiece, through the capital outlay fund of then Councilor BH, the BH Mobile Clinic – a van capable of providing health services such as X-ray, ECG, Laboratory services, Dental services and others – at the doorsteps of Quezon City residents as well as residents of nearby cities and provinces. A first in Quezon City! Bagong Henerasyon implements the services offered by the mobile clinic as agreed upon in the memorandum of agreement. To date, more than 10,000 residents have benefited from this project.

 

Eight months later, October 2007, the BH Mobile Clinic launched the Free Ultrsound Service for pregnant women as its additional service. Most underprivileged pregnant women don’t have access to such service due to affordability. This was made possible because of the Ultrasound equipment donation by President Rey David of Rotary Club of Timog, who is a continuous partner of Bagong Henerasyon.

 

Bagong Henerasyon also undertakes regular Medical and Dental Missions, annual Operation “Tuli” especially during summer months, and conducts Anti-Rabies Vaccination, Anti-Dengue Fumigation and Anti-Sars disinfection on a need basis.
