#DokFerj Biron Reveals Plans for Iloilo

#DokFerj Featured Image

#DokFerj – the man behind landmark bills in Congress – is all set to implement policies that will transform Iloilo into an economically competitive province with the development of economic zones that will generate employment, provide greater opportunities for business, build more infrastructure, and improve access to health care and better education.

In a media conference held on the day he filed his certificate of candidacy for Iloilo’s 2019 gubernatorial elections, Congressman Ferjenel Biron shared how his four terms as Iloilo 4th District Representative shaped his vision for the overall development of the province.

#DokFerj ImageA self-made man who rose from the pits of poverty to finish his degree in medicine and put up his own pharmaceutical business, #DokFerj Biron is known as the “working congressman” who authored significant bills such as the Cheaper Medicine Act of 2008, Food and Drug Administration Act, Gift Check Act, Ease of Doing Business Act, among many others.

According to #DokFerj, it was a privilege for him to serve in Congress for four consecutive terms but he feels that he can better implement his plans and policies for Iloilo’s development as its provincial governor. “My learnings in Congress gave me the wisdom which will eventually become the cornerstone of our future programs for the province of Iloilo, most especially with regards to public health. We have seen the deplorable conditions of our overcrowded provincial hospitals. Aside from access to cheaper medicine, we need to address the lack of proper medical facilities in these hospitals,” he explained.

In terms of ushering a financially stable future for the province, #DokFerj identified key points in economic development that are geared towards poverty alleviation. “In Iloilo, we have so much human resource but we start losing them because there are hardly any opportunities for them here… We need to maximize our human resource by making our province attractive so that we can entice local and foreign stakeholders to invest in business infrastructures. This is exactly what we did in Congress to promote our district’s economic zones, most especially Dumanggas, Passi City, and the town of Barotac Nuevo. We are working on the improvement and expansion of the Dumanggas port as a functional international seaport that serves as the gateway to our economic zones.”

With his notable track record as a four-term Iloilo 4th District congressman, #DokFerj has shown his capability and competency in transforming Iloilo into an economically self-sustaining province that can truly live up to its status as the heart of the Visayas.

“We live life by example and give opportunities for people to educate and empower themselves. I myself came from a family that lived with very limited means, and I know how it is like to tackle the countless challenges of poverty to achieve the life I dreamed for myself and my family. But it’s possible to rise from the throes of poverty, given the right opportunities. I believe this is the right time for me to give back with these right opportunities, and I wish to enlist the support of the Ilonggos so that we can all win the future for Iloilo as a progressive and economically empowered province,” said #DokFerj.

Inday Loren Legarda Inaugurates Gabaldon School Building, Launches Milk Feeding and Dairy Dev’t Programs in Antique

Antique Batang Alaska School Milk Program
Senator Loren Legarda will lead today the inauguration of the Gabaldon school building at Pandan Central School as well as the launch of a Milk Feeding Program and Dairy Development Program for the Province of Antique.
Legarda, chair of the senate committee on Finance, allotted funding under the 2016 national budget for the restoration of the Pandan Central School Gabaldon Building.
The Gabaldon building was built in 1938 and was occupied by the pioneer graduates of the school in 1941. The building was burned down by the Japanese Army when the war broke out during the World War II in 1943. The building was rehabilitated by the Americans but was damaged again by the
onslaught of Typhoon Yolanda in 2013.
Inday Loren, as her fellow Antiquenos call her, has been advocating for the restoration of Gabaldon school buildings in the country not only as part of heritage conservation but also to reuse them for their original purpose as places of learning.
“The success of the restoration of these structures can promote the concept of heritage conservation especially in the provinces where these ‘built heritage remain standing. These buildings can be used to ease classroom shortage or congestion especially in the countryside,”she said.
Coinciding with the Gabaldon building inauguration is the launch of the Inday Loren at ang Batang Alaska School Milk Program, a milk feeding program for selected schools in Antique. The launch will be held at Pandan Central School but will also be implemented in 17 other schools in the province, one school per municipality.
Legarda, a nutrition advocate, said that the milk feeding program complement feeding programs and gulayan sa paraalan programs in public schools.
“Over 29,000 Filipino children below five die each year due to undernutrition. It not only affects children’s physical growth, but also diminishes their learning capacity and school performance. Later in life as adults and professionals, they have lower productivity and reduced earnings by half,” she explained.
Antique Batang Alaska School Milk Program
“That is why we need to provide good nutrition to children to ensure optimal growth. We need to ensure that nutrition-related programs of government are not only funded but also implemented well,”Legarda stressed.
Meanwhile, the Senator will also lead the turnover of breeding stocks and the launch of the Antique Dairy Development Program, which aims to increase local dairy stock and local milk production through the establishment of dairy enterprises, provide livelihood opportunities as source of additional income to farmers, and address the problem of malnutrition.
To date, 44 heads of pregnant dairy heifers were already distributed to a total of 15 dairy farmers in Antique who have produced 17 calves and some 18,579 liters of milk since its initial dispersal made last January 10,2018. The launch will be in time with the delivery of 24 heads of pregnant dairy heifers.
The formal launch of the program at the Liberman Gymnasium in Pandan will also provide an avenue for dairy farmers to air issues and concerns, and manifest whatever support they may need to succeed in dairy production and dairy enterprise.
Legarda will also lead the distribution of fiberglass boats and post harvest fishing kits to recipients in Pandan. A total of 750 units of fiberglass boats an allocated for the whole province of Antique.

Antique Is Next Stop For Batang Alaska School Milk Program

Antique Batang Alaska School Milk Program

Alaska Nutrition Advocate champions campaign towards “Tamang Tangkad and Bigat”

PANDAN, ANTIQUE – According to the 2015 National Nutrition Survey conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippines (FNRI), 1 out of every 3 children in the Philippines aged 5 to 10 is affected by stunted growth or is underweight.

Stunted growth is defined as lack of height for a child’s age. On the other hand, the state of being underweight means a child lacks the proper weight for his or her age. Both these conditions are due to poor nutrition and is prevalent in a third world country such as the Philippines. Stunted growth as well as being underweight are problems that should not be ignored.  If not addressed early, both conditions may lead to lost productivity and nutrition-related diseases later in life.  However, both problems can be addressed with proper nutrition during the developmental stages of a child’s life.

Fully aware of these facts, Alaska Milk Corporation, which is dedicated to providing proper and affordable nutrition to Filipinos for over four decades, champions a school milk program that promotes the importance of proper nutrition all throughout a child’s development years in order to reach the right height and weight for their age.

Taking the lead in this campaign is Alaska’s new Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink which is a good source of vitamin D, high in calcium and iron and packed with protein. Milk has always been essential for growing children to have enough and consistent nutrient intake to ensure maximum growth potential. That is why Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink, combined with proper nutrition and an active lifestyle, will help children reach the tamang tangkad at bigat (right height and weight) for their age.

After successful legs in Manila, Davao and Cebu, the Batang Alaska School Milk Program now goes to Antique, the home province of Alaska Milk’s Nutrition Advocate Sen. Loren Legarda, who authored many pieces of legislation aimed at improving the lives of Filipinos and promoting inclusive, sustainable and resilient development.

The Batang Alaska School Milk Program-Antique was formally launched in Pandan Elementary School in Pandan, Antique. During the event, kids, teachers and parents were given a short but educational talk about the importance of nutrition and of regularly drinking milk by Inday Loren, as how the esteemed senator is called in her hometown. Alaska also provided everyone with samples of the Alaska Fortified Milk Drink, which when combined with a balance diet, is able to help children obtain their age’s proper height and weight.

Given the importance of milk in providing proper nutrition, Sen. Legarda also graced the formal launch of the Antique Dairy Development Program at the Liberman Gymnasium in Pandan, Antique. The launch coincided with the delivery of 24 heads of pregnant dairy heifers from Primas DMF that will increase milk production in the province of Antique. As of September 2018, dairy farmers in this province have produced 18,579 liters of milk since January 18, 2018. Sen. Legarda, Chair of the Senate Committee on Finance, had allotted the funding for the purchase of Breeding Stock under the budget of the National Dairy Authority.

Sun Life FUNday: Money Under Age 30

Sun Life FUNday

ILOILO – Sun Life FUNday July 22, 2018 at DOVA Brunch Café for a fun and informative talk on financial literacy and investment. This event was tailored to meet the needs of millennials on their journey as they earn their first salary. As they say, the early we invest rightly, the bigger the return in the future. #SunLifeFUNday

Targeting a younger market, DOVA Brunch Café is a great place to create the vibes and the feels for millennials. Every young Filipino has to know their current financial status in order to create a good plan to achieve financial independence and stability.

Sun Life FUNday: Financial Journey and Learning by Ms. Katrina Loring

The first part of Sun Life FUNday was talked out by Miss Katrina Loring about her journey as a young entrepreneur. She shared her previous businesses and how she managed to earn from them. She shared how she came to realize that by aging older, she had to distinguish really the needs from the wants.

Sun Life FUNday

Miss Katrina pointed out some lessons she learned by herself in her journey as a young person. She mentioned having zero savings, over spending and credit abuse. She also discussed some solution to be practically made. That is to pay the debts accordingly, pay bills on time, manage expenses through having a record and to become an auto saver. This is beyond piggy banks, shall I say.

Sun Life FUNday: Money Regrets and Growth by Mr. Michael Gustilo

The second part of Sun Life FUNday was taken over by Mr. Michael Gustilo, Visayas Regional Sales Manager of Sun Life Financial. He discussed more in depth the mistakes on financial journey of people under 30s. These are what he called “Money Regrets”. Most have gone through these: spending so much on wants, starting late personally on financial management and being dependent on salary as the only source of income. Who wants to be employed at the age of 60, he asked. Compelling, right?

Sun Life FUNday

Also, Mr. Michael shared insights about investments on any form. There are three major factors to consider on investing: time, money and interest. Time, the best time to start investing which should be yesterday (not today) in order to have a return today. Money, save as much as you can. Interest, find better inflation rates today. This is where financial advisors fit in the picture.

Indeed, finances matter and how we save and/or spend it matters even more. It’s not the earning habits but the spending habits that define someone’s wealth. Learn how to make your money work for your dream and achieve financial independence. Income sources, frugality, knowledge, and investment will be the best formula to attain financial security in the future!

Sun Life Piolo Pascual: Keeping His Promises

Sun Life Piolo Pascual

Relationships are built on promises: the promise to love, to care, to secure, to protect, and to provide. This is something that Piolo Pascual knows all too well, committed as he is to the promises he has made to his family as a son, a sibling, and a father.

Sun Life Piolo Pascual

But when financial troubles arise, bringing such promises to life becomes a challenge.

“Like any other person, I want to give my family the best life possible. I am a man of my word, that’s why I work hard and seize every opportunity that comes my way,” Piolo said. “But more than just earning money, it’s how you manage your finances that makes a difference. Fortunately, I have the guidance and help of one very special lady: my very own sister, Chiqui Pascual-Gonzales, who also happens to be my Sun Life Advisor.”

Sun Life Piolo Pascual

According to Piolo, Chiqui has been instrumental in ensuring that his dreams for his family will all come true. “It’s a partnership through and through. With her help, I’ve been able to make it all happen while still pursuing my own passions and advocacies,” he said.

Piolo and Chiqui’s story is but one of many in Sun Life Financial, where lifetime partnerships are developed and nurtured through the years. In fact, this has inspired Sun Life’s latest campaign, at the forefront of which is a new TV commercial highlighting Sun Life’s presence in a client’s life throughout the different stages of her life. It represents the many promises that Sun Life has helped bring into fruition for the past 123 years of its existence.

Sun Life Piolo Pascual

Sun Life hopes that the campaign, as well as Piolo’s own story, will inspire more people to take the same path in their financial journey. “As the longest-standing life insurance company in the Philippines, we have witnessed many promises being fulfilled throughout the years and have served generations of clients. It is an honor for us to serve all our clients and help them secure their future and those of their loved ones” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said.

Sun Life Piolo Pascual

“The promises we make to our loved ones are sacred, and Sun Life knows this. That’s why it’s committed to helping its clients achieve their goals, no matter what happens,” Piolo said. “You can’t ask for a better lifetime partner than that!”

Z-Benefit The Medical City Iloilo Featured Image

The Medical City Iloilo (TMCI) and the PhilHealth Health Insurance Corporation Region VI (PhilHealth VI) inked a partnership for the Z-Benefit Package for Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (CABG) last Friday, June 1. 

The event was graced by PhilHealth representatives from the Central Office headed by Regional Vice President Lourdes Diocson, and Medical Officer and HCDMD Chief Dr. Bernadette Reynes. TMCI Executive Committee Members and Dr. Jared Billena as well as Councilor Candice Tupas were also present during the event.

“The alarming rise of death rate attributed to cardiovascular disease has prompted PhilHealth to partner with The Medical City Iloilo to provide Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery,” said PhilHealth-VI Regional Vice President Lourdes F. Diocson, Regional Vice President.

Under PhilHealth’s Z-Benefit for CABG, the patient is entitled to a package rate of Php 550,000 for the entire course of treatment.

The Php 550,000 benefit package is the second highest benefit package being paid for by PhilHealth which covers drugs and medicines, operating room and professional fees, including mandatory and other services under PhilHealth’s ‘Z-Benefit’ – or those illnesses perceived to be financially and medically catastrophic.

“PhilHealth is confident that with the right management, competent multi-disciplinary team and cutting edge medical technology, The Medical City Iloilo is the key to the improvement of the heart conditions of our patients,” Diocson added.

With TMCI as a Z-Benefit Provider for CABG, patient-members are mandatorily provided with services such as pre-operative laboratory tests, medications, blood support, open heart surgery and continuing post-operative care, among others.

“This is a welcome development for us. With the increasing population affected by heart disease who die each year because of inaccessible and unaffordable treatment, it’s really time for us to help address this challenge,” said TMCI CEO Dr. Eugene Ramos.

He added that TMCI’s provision of Z-Benefit Package for CABG, the first in Western Visayas, is still part of their commitment of making health services accessible and available for the Ilonggos centered on their ‘patient partnership’ philosophy.
