MANILA, Philippines — The local government of Muntinlupa City has launched a program that will give free medicine to senior citizens with diabetes or high blood pressure ailments on October 12.

According to Muntinlupa City Mayor Rufino Biazon, the program named “Love ko si Lolo, Love ko si Lola, Libreng Gamot para sa Senior Citizens” is part of the 7K program under “Kalusugan,” and funds will be provided so senior citizens can receive medicines regularly.

“Ang gusto po nating gawin sa ilalim ng ating 7K agenda program sa Kalusugan ay mabigyan ng regular maintenance medicines ang ating mga seniors na mayroong diabetes at high blood pressure. Kami po ay maglalaan ng pondo para pambili ng maintenance medicine na yan at regular ninyong makukuha,” Biazon said.


(We want to give regular maintenance medicines to senior citizens with diabetes and high blood pressure ailments under our 7K agenda program. We will set aside funds for purchasing these medicines that you can regularly obtain.)


Senior citizens who have diabetes or high blood pressure ailments can register at the city’s health centers every Wednesday and Friday.

They will also need to bring their Office for Senior Citizens’ Affairs or other valid government identification card with their address and date of birth, as well as a prescription issued in the last three months with a photocopy.
