'LAB for All' goes to Zambales province

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO---After making its rounds in Pampanga, Bulacan and Tarlac recently, First Lady Marie Louise Araneta-Marcos' Laboratoryo, Konsulta, at Gamot para sa Lahat (LAB for All) caravan went to the Botolan People’s Plaza in Zambales on July 18.

The caravan benefitted some 1,700 residents who received free laboratory tests, consultations and medicines.

Family food packs and financial assistance were also given to the beneficiaries.

Zambales is the fourth province in Central Luzon to benefit from the medical mission which provides accessible primary care services to people.

In her message to Zambaleños, Araneta-Marcos said that LAB for All's mission is to bring health services closer to the people.

“My husband said we must bring health services closer to the people and not wait for them to come. That is how the LAB for All project began. What we are trying to do in our little ways is to bring medical services, consultations, and medications closer to all of you,” she said.

LAB for All is in partnership with the Department of Health, Department of the Interior and Local Government, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, Commission on Higher Education, Food and Drug Administration, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and the provincial government of Zambales.
