Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) continues to support the local government of Atimonan in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beyond providing material and financial assistance, the company acknowledges the importance of ensuring that the residents of Atimonan are well-educated about the global health crisis especially amidst the spread of fake news.
With health as one of the pillars of A1E’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, the company teamed up with a local radio station for an informative program on health dubbed as “Kaisa sa Kalusugan.”
The program features guest health experts who discuss relevant and timely information related to health, which is very important now as the world continues to battle the pandemic.
Launched early this year, Kaisa sa Kalusugan, airs every Sunday morning via Radyo Natin Atimonan 106.5, which reaches more than 50% of barangays in Atimonan. The program is also streamed in A1E’s community Facebook page.
Dr. Richard Argulla, Atimonan Municipal Health Officer, acknowledged the importance of the radio program to the government’s COVID-19 information, education, and communication (IEC) efforts.
“The weekly radio show has helped in disseminating health information, provide practical treatment and prevention of various diseases which is relevant to the ongoing pandemic,” Dr. Argulla said.
Since its launch, Kaisa sa Kalusugan has featured discussions on COVID-19 and the vaccination program; oral health; eye care; family planning; nutrition; teenage pregnancy; mental health; childhood immunization; and importance of breastfeeding.
The company aims to continue this IEC campaign even after the pandemic.
Listeners can expect more interesting and relevant discussions on drug and alcohol; sports and other fitness programs, and relevance of PhilHealth in the upcoming episodes.
