KIDAPAWAN CITY — The city government here has begun delivering senior citizens’ medical assistance right to their doorstep to ease their burden of coming over to the City Hall.

“Personnel from the mayor’s office and city social welfare office have been bringing the maintenance medicine to senior citizens’ homes in the city’s 40 barangays since September 13,” Mayor Joseph Evangelista said in an interview with reporters here Saturday.

The “door-to-door” delivery of maintenance medicines was a commitment given by Evangelista when he inducted the new set of officers of the Kidapawan City Office of Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) recently.

He said the medicines came from the non-government organization, With Love Jan Foundation, Inc., and the city health office.

Earlier, the OSCA submitted a list of senior residents who need anti-hypertension medicine, with the distribution done only during scheduled barangay assemblies for senior citizens.

There are about 5,000 senior citizens in this city. (PNA)
