Zonta Club of Central Tuguegarao supports indigenous people
On 19 February, the Zonta Club of Central Tuguegarao, the Philippines, conducted its second Alay Agay, which means "gifts for Agays," a service project to support the Agays, indigenous people, in the Sto. Niño, Cagayan municipality.
With its partners, the club engaged with 76 women and girls about reproduction health and family planning. They also gave oral fluoride treatment to children and informed parents on how to care for baby teeth and toothbrush techniques. At the end of the event, the club and its partners donated vitamins and oral health kits to 54 families and 200 toothbrushes to individuals.
The club would like to thank its partners, the local government unit, the Philippine National Police and the 2nd Provincial Force Company. They are also thankful to Pastor Edwin Balasiw, the group leader, for helping them promote the service project to his community.
