Mayor Carmelo โ€œPogiโ€ Lazatin Jr. has vowed to โ€œensure the health, education, and well-beingโ€ of children in Angeles City.

During his State of the Childrenโ€™s Address on Wednesday, November 29 at the Angeles City Legislative Office, Mayor Lazatin said โ€œit is our paramount duty to ensure the health, education, and well-being of our childrenโ€ citing the โ€œpride and confidenceโ€ in having implemented these programs and the desire to continue them in the next two more years.

The Mayor added, โ€œI stand before you today with pride and confidence โ€“ pride, because I know that somehow, I made good of my promises to provide each Angeleno student access to education; confidence, for in the next two more years, with all your help, we can achieve more.โ€

This, after Mayor Lazatin just concluded his visits to the cityโ€™s 55 public schools and 72 day-care centers in Angeles City to personally distribute more than 100,000 sets of school gears and supplies to students โ€“ from kindergarten up to Grade 12.

The provision for free school supplies had started in 2022 when the Angeles LGU led by Mayor Lazatin provided free shoes, socks, shirts, school supplies, and new bags for the public school students. The gesture eased the burden of parents who expressed their gratitude to the local chief executive.

Mayor Lazatin said the day care centers were provided with 3,000 new chairs and tables thru a partnership with Impact Balibago Arts and Crafts (IBAC) to โ€œmake learning more conducive to our children.โ€

Mayor Lazatin said 45 more classrooms were completed in the City College of Angeles (CCA) to accommodate an additional 1,500 students increasing the population to 6,500.

Health and education are two of the cornerstones of the Lazatin administration assuring that children in the city get not only good education but also adequate nutrition via the launching of the โ€œPusong Mamon,โ€ a bread made of the healthy malunggay. Some 1,500 children in the city have benefitted from the program to address malnutrition.

The City Nutrition Office with the help of barangay nutrition scholars have distributed 100,500 pieces of Pusong Mamon via house-to-house visit. Some P4 million is earmarked for the Pusong Mamon program every year.

โ€œThis leadership recognizes the fundamental importance of protecting and improving the health of our children,โ€ according to Mayor Lazatin.

โ€œThe pandemic has taught us the importance of health and taking care of ourselves, especially the most vulnerable members of our community โ€“ the children,โ€ said Lazatin.

Mayor Lazatin has vowed to โ€œmake health services accessible to all.โ€

Among others, Mayor Lazatin said the Angeles LGU will โ€œupgrade the 11 health center facilities in nine barangays to become primary care facilities.โ€ This endeavor is expected to cost P60 million.

The Angeles LGU has already started the expansion of the first three health centers in Barangays Pulungbulu, Tabun, and Capaya, in April this year.

Mayor Lazatin said the Angeles LGU will hire 11 rural health physicians, 11 medical technologists, and 11 laboratory aides to man the 11 Primary Care Facilities in the city.

He said medicines will be readily available for free and will be replenished every week.

Mayor Lazatin said five more Rural Health Units (RHUs) will be established in Barangays Cutud, Pampang, Balibago (Hadrian), Pulungbulu (Mangga), and Malabanias (Clarkview).

โ€œThe creation of more RHUs will not only make health services accessible but it will also decongest our city hospital โ€“ the Rafael Lazatin Memorial Medical Center,โ€ said Mayor Lazatin.

Mayor Lazatin said that it is the desire of the Angeles LGU that โ€œjuvenile children will be reformed and transformed into productive members of our society.โ€

Furthermore, Mayor Lazatin said the Angeles LGU is currently โ€œreviewing our public school programs for children with special needs.โ€ He said the city government will provide funds for the program.

โ€œI believe that children with special needs must receive more from my government, and we will spare no effort in ensuring that we open the doors for these children so that they will have the same opportunities,โ€ said Mayor Lazatin.

Some P60 million had been allotted for the development of computer laboratories for the junior and senior high schools at the FG Nepomuceno Memorial High School; Rafael Lazatin Integrated School; Rafael Lazatin Memorial High School; Angeles City National High School; Angeles City National Trade School; and Northville 15 Integrated School.

Mayor Lazatin said he wants the graduates to be more competitive in the job market. โ€œWe will provide enough computers to students so that the ratio of computers to students is one-is-to-one. We will endure the computers are capable enough to be used simultaneously.โ€

The Mayor stressed that his to the welfare of children is boundless and this is only the start of another year of hard work.
