ZAMBOANGA CITY. Mayor Beng Climaco yesterday led city government personnel and other agencies in a cleanup activity at the Masepla transitory site, the biggest temporary shelter for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Barangay Mampang, this city.

The activity also coincided with the “Dia del Alcalde,” a medical-dental outreach participated in by various city government offices offering frontline services to the public, notable the City Health Office (CHO), Office of the City Environment and Natural Resources (OCENR), City Engineer’s Office, the city police, City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO), Red Cross Zamboanga and others.

The activity was able to serve the medical needs of 524 IDPs and dental services for 50 other IDPs. It also served as an avenue for information dissemination on employment and livelihood opportunities for the IDP-families.

Camp leaders were also given health and sanitary lectures for them to echo to all Masepla IDPs in a bid to maintain cleanliness and healthier environment at the transitory site, now holding a total of 890 families displaced by the September 2013 siege.

During the activity, the livelihood cluster informed the IDPs about the job opportunities that they can avail of at the canning factories once they reopen in February after almost three months of closed operation due to the fishing ban season. Hiring will start next month as well.

The City Social Welfare and Development Office, meanwhile, has turned over to CHO the assorted medicines that Tzu Chi Foundation had earlier donated. The medicines were used in the medical-dental activity.

Also present were physicians from the Department of Health. (Vic Larato)
