Limasawa garners Nutrition Honor Award, a first in Region 8

MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte, Oct. 6 (PIA) -- For consistently getting recognized in its nutrition program for the past six consecutive years, the historic island-municipality of Limasawa, this province, shines once again for the Nutrition Honor Award (NHA), the first local government unit (LGU) in Region 8 to reap such distinction, according to Nilda Rich, the Assistant Provincial Nutrition Action Officer.

In a phone interview with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Tuesday, Rich said Limasawa was a Green Banner Awardee for nutrition in the years 2005, 2006, and 2007, while for the next three years, from 2008, 2009, and 2010, the LGU garnered the Consistent Regional Outstanding Winner in Nutrition (CROWN) award.

This year’s nutrition performance evaluation, which was based in the 2010 assessment, Limasawa made history again for landing in the top spot, this time the NHA, and for this outstanding effort it stands to receive P 500,000.00 from the National Nutrition Council (NNC), an agency under the Department of Health (DOH), Rich informed.

Awarding ceremony was slated to be held on October 25, 2011, in Manila, it was learned.

Rich cited a decreasing trend of malnourished population in Limasawa, attributing this to the many nutrition-oriented activities initiated or supported by Mayor Melchor Petracorta.

Among the many nutrition-based activities, she noted a constant monitoring of children in great dangers to be malnourished, and before getting into the borderline, these target children will be the focus of Limasawa’s concentrated feeding program.

Meanwhile, Maasin City will also be a CROWN awardee for its nutrition program during the October 25 awarding rites, with P 250,000.00 cash incentive, said Dr. Francilisa Tan, Head of City Health Unit I.

The members of the City Nutrition Committee, along with Mayor Maloney Samaco, will be the ones to receive the citation and the financial reward, said Dr. Tan. (PIA-Southern Leyte/bong)
