Basilan gov’t committed to fight malnutrition – Gov Salliman

Basilan Governor Jim Salliman has promised that the provincial government is committed to fight and eradicate malnutrition in the province.

Represented by Provincial Social Welfare Officer Anuary Acalul, the governor made the statement during the kick-off celebration of the 50th Nutrition Month in Barangay Look-Bait in Sumisip town recently.

Meanwhile, Sumisip Mayor Jul-Adnan P. Hataman said the month-long celebration anchored on the theme “Nagkakaisang Bangsamoro sa Nutrisyong Sapat para sa Lahat” was a manifestation of everybody’s aspirations and unity towards achieving sufficient nutrition in every community.

“Ang Nutirition Month Celebration po ay mahalaga upang ipaalala sa atin ang kahalagahan ng tamang nutrisyon. Ito rin ay pagkakataon upang suriin ang ating mga nagawa, tukuyin ang mga natitira pang hamon, at muling pagtibayin ang ating pangako sa pagkamit ng ating mga layunin sa nutrisyon,” he said.

During the event, free vegetables, school supplies, aroz caldo, and rice were distributed to the beneficiaries.

Bangsamoro Health Minister Jojo Sinolinding was also present at the event.
