ILOILO –The Philippine Red Cross-Iloilo Chapter, with the support of Korean Red Cross, will help in the upgrading and expansion of a birthing clinic located in Carles town here.
Based on the letter of Chapter Administrator Gilbert Paul Valderrama, PRC-Iloilo will construct an annex building to the existing birthing clinic to increase its bed capacity.
ILOILO – The United Nation Children’s Fund has provided this province with nine units of water quality analyzers to ensure the safety of water coming communal faucets in areas stricken by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in 2013.
Now in General Services Office for inspection, the equipment has portable incubator and multi-parameter test kit that has the capacity to detect Escherichia coli and total coliform in water samples.
ILOILO – Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. has committed to help the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in the routinely repair and maintenance of Iloilo District Jail in Brgy. Nanga, Pototan town.
The governor’s support came following the objection of the Department of Justice in the previous memorandum of agreement where BJMP-6 was supposed to shoulder all the expenses.
The Iloilo District Jail, previously known as Iloilo Provincial Integrated Jail, was slowly turned over to BJMP-6 in 2012.
ILOILO – The construction of the longest farm-to-market road in the whole of Visayas is up for bidding next month.
The bidding process will finally commence after the provincial government received the letter of no objection from World Bank.
ILOILO – The provincial government here is urging the national government agencies running after illegal fishers to be aggressive and relentless in their campaign too.
This developed after the Iloilo Provincial Bantay Dagat single-handedly apprehended the third Danish seine operator that resurfaced in Carles on Monday.
Onboard fishing vessel JenJun-1, the task force led by SPO1 Gilbert Piedad caught eight fishermen using the outlawed super hulbot-hulbot in the marine waters of Gigantes Norte.
