Just a few days after CatSU renewed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Nutrition Council of the Philippines and Provincial Government of Catanduanes, CatSU president Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza joined the Feeding Program activity in Buyo, Virac, October 17, 2021.
In the MOA, it was stated that CatSU will provide its Faculty Extentionists who will be involved in the Early Childhood Care and Development for the first 1000 days (ECCD F1K) which aims to contribute to the full development of a child through integrated services of health, nutrition, early education, and social services to continuously improve the quality of the country’s human resource base and to contribute with poverty reduction.
The president extended his gratitude CatSU Board of Regent Member and Congressman, Hector S. Sanchez, Governor Boboy Cua, for helping CatSU with the feeding project’s implementation. He also thanked Ms Gina Popa Elegado of Philseabaord, Mr. Armando Zafe, CatSU Secgurado Ka Retirees Inc. President, Councilor Robert Arcilla Maullon, Pastor Nonong, and friends for helping in making the day’s feeding activity a success.
“Certainly we can do so much if we always help each other”, Dr. Azanza quipped.
Recipients of the feeding project came to more than 200 children in Buyo. The President also thanked the barangay’s Head, Brgy. Captain Daniel Tria Jr. for his efforts in organizing the children in his area.
Part of the projects’ objectives is to reduce or prevent child under-nutrition and especially to educate children, help them improve knowledge about healthy diet and lifestyle habits and hunger. “It is important that we should always think of the children suffering due to lack or improper body nutrition.
Here in ourprovince, with the continuous hard work and support from the various government agencies, we would be able to address the malnutrition which is one of the causes of school dropouts and low academic performance amongst the children”, Dr. Azanza said. #cvecilles
