    Cabanatuan City District Jail inmates get free medical, dental and legal services through the efforts of jail officers in partnership with UNTV, Members Church of God International and its public service partners.

    NUEVA ECIJA Philippines — A concerned warden of Cabanatuan City District Jail wrote Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon regarding the situation in their prison facility.

    The ideal capacity of the district jail in Camp Tinio, Nueva Ecija is 200 inmates.

    But the government’s intensified campaign against illegal drugs has brought the number of detainees up to 750.

    Since the area is crowded, transmission of diseases is unavoidable.

    Warden JCInsp. Jerome Verbo said, “Normal yan pag ganyang masikip minsan mga skin disease yong mga pigsa, ganon, tapos ubo, lagnat, TB (tuberculosis) meron. Mga TB cases pero meron silang isolation kaya yon. Ang gusto namin na matanggal yong TB kasi once na nag-ano yong case ng TB lahat yan madadamay pati kami rin na personnel.”

    (That’s normal. When it’s crowded, skin diseases like boils, as well as cough and fever are common. There are also TB cases but they have isolation room. We want to eliminate TB because it might affect others, even us, personnel.)

    Some also received free medicines, eyeglasses, haircut and legal advices.
