Bislig City LGU holds Buntis Congress

The Bislig City government under Mayor Florencio C. Garay has conducted the Buntis Congress 2023 and Blood Letting event aimed to promote a healthy and safety pregnancy for all expecting mothers in the city.

During the activity, pregnant women who were about to give birth and in their 3rd trimester of pregnancy were given package services and relevant information, the city government said.

“The event was a success, with 65 pregnant women receiving Calcium Lactate supplementation to prevent hypertension in pregnancy,” it said.

The women also received food packages and hygiene kits to support their overall well-being.

Additionally, 70 pregnant women were given Buntis Kits from the Department of Health in Caraga and the local government of Bislig.

Some 13 pregnant women were given urinalysis and hemoglobin tests to ensure their health and detect any potential complications.

City Councilor Pedrito Sulapas, who also serves as the Sangguniang Panlungsod Committee Chair on Health, Nutrition, and Sanitation, represented Garay in the event with the theme, “Forward towards Healthy and Safe Pregnancy.”

The activity was part of the 23rd Charter Day celebration of the city.
