The Ministry of Health in the Bangsamoro Region in Muslim Mindanao (MOH-BARMM) on Monday turned over 11 ambulances to various health facilities across the region.

During the turnover ceremony, MOH-BARMM minister, Dr. Rizaldy Piang, said all the ambulances and other supplemental projects form part of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) initiative to pour in some PHP157 million worth of projects to protect the health of residents.

Also turned over during the event was a PHP7.5- million mobile clinic.

Last week, six ambulances were turned over to Basilan, an island province in the region.

Funded from the 2021 Transitional Development Impact Fund (TDIF) of the BTA, the projects include land ambulances, mobile clinics, incentives for barangay health workers, medicines, and barangay health stations, among others.

“This the sign that our government is responsive to the needs of our community,” Piang said, after he and BARMM Senior Minister Abdulraof Macacua signed the memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the distribution of the ambulances.

Each of the modern ambulances costs PHP2.5 million. (PNA)
