Fighting for the Philippines, let us support “Pambansang
Kamao” Manny Pacquiao on his latest bout against American Boxer Brandon Rios on Sunday, November 24, 2013, 09:00 AM LIVE TELECAST at the City Plaza.
“Determined to bring in inspiration and hope amidst the current crisis after Typhoon Yolanda, the Pacquiao-Rios Fight would be a great help to uplift the spirits of our fellow waray-warays” says City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan who pushed for the live viewing at the City Plaza come Sunday.
Special thanks to Cignal TV for the coverage and to BBCS Data Systems (BitsnBytes Catbalogan) for the technical assistance.
Fresh from the survey conducted by the LGU Catbalogan City team sent by Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan last November 13, 2014, the Municipality of Lawaan was first from Eastern Samar to be the recipient of the medical-relief of Catbalogan City.
Conducted on November 17, 2013, the said relief operation was a three (3) simultaneous activity on different locations. A medical mission was spearheaded by the Office of the City Health led by City Health Officer, Dr. Gerarda Tizon, Assistant City Health Officer Dr. Anna Sophia Lim and a team of nurses and staff. Consultation started around 02:00 PM at their dilapidated Municipal Hall and finished at around 06:00 PM catering 1,119 residents of Marabut, Samar. Most treatments were basically on cough, fever and colds while others were given medicine for maintenance like hypertension, diabetes, and others. Tetanus toxoid were also administered to the same number of patients. Medicines were provided by Metrowaste Inc. and from the supplies of the City Health Office.
A simultaneous feeding and distribution of relief goods were conducted at across the Municipal Hall and across their church respectively. The following number of relief goods were distributed at different barangays:
Brgy 01 – 71 packs
Brgy 02 – 40 packs
Brgy 03 – 32 packs
Brgy 04 – 51 packs
Brgy 05 – 62 packs
Brgy 06 – 115 packs
Brgy 07 – 84 packs
Brgy 09 – 84 packs
Brgy Taguite – 271 packs and 542 bottles of 1 Liter Mineral Water
TOTAL – 885 packs
Mineral waters were provided by donors Mr. and Ms. Pete Arteche of Cebu City. Rice porridge or “arroz caldo” served as hot meals during the mass feeding, and was personally cooked by City Councilor Coefredo Tekwa Uy. Navy reservist of the 831st Marine Company Reserve also helped in the distribution of relief goods.
City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan was very much willing to be personally present during the said medical-relief operation at Lawaan, Eastern Samar but due to equally important concerns at the City Hall, she had to beg off and instead sent City Vice Mayor Art Gabon and Councilor Coefredo “Tekwa” Uy to led the team.
With 11 recorded casualties in the municipality, Lawaan was somehow fortunate enough compared to other municipalities in Eastern Samar relative to the damages brought by Super Typhoon Yolanda.
Municipal Mayor Candida Cabornes was present along with Vice Mayor Banjo Tolentino who warmly welcomed the LGU Team and extended their sincere appreciation for the support and assistance extended.

Please refer to the EO attached herewith.
The Family Planning Organization of the Philippines (FPOP) through its Samar Chapter situated in Catbalogan City along with its National Representatives Mr. Tet Arcenal and Ms. Meriam Lucero as well as Samar Chapter Program Manager Bambie N. Espino and Community Based Volunteer President Ms. Riza Jatulan paid courtesy call with City Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan last November 16, 2013.
The said courtesy call was about FPOP’s existing project entitled MISP or the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) for Reproductive Health in Crisis Situations, a disaster response initiative to make Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) information and services available or accessible to Internally Displaced Persons or Populations (IDPs).
The MISP is a set of activities that saves lives and prevents trauma, disability and death to women, especially those pregnant and victims of sexual abuse. Another target of the project is children. Not considering the MISP in emergency settings results to serious consequences. If, however, applied, it can prevent maternal and newborn deaths, sexual violence and subsequent trauma, sexually transmitted infections, unplanned and complicated pregnancies, and the possible spread of HIV.
With the recent crisis in the region brought by Super Typhoon Yolanda, FPOP is set to extend the said information and services for pregnant or lactating mother as well as children and adolescents relative to reproductive health in both Leyte and Samar municipalities.
Mayor Step, a former Chapter Council Vice President of FPOP-Samar Chapter has extended her full support to the said project, which stresses the importance of reproductive health not only in everyday lives but most especially in crisis situations.
