COMMUNITY

Weekly family visits are done by the pediatric residents and volunteers in Barangay Palatiw prior to the pandemic. Because of the large land area of Barangay Palatiw, family visits were concentrated in Villa Raymundo, Brgy Palatiw. This area which is composed of approximately 100 households, was identified by the Barangay Council as the most indigent area of Palatiw, hence was the focus of the family visits. Vulnerable members of the households, such as newborns, children less than 11 months old and breastfeeding mothers were the focus of the family visits.
