In line with the 22nd Cityhood Anniversary of Isabela and the Sakayan Festival 2023, Mayor Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman along with Councilor Karel Annjaiza Sakkalahul, City Information Officer and concurrent GAD Focal Mendry-Ann Lim and CHRMO Rosella Luna formally opened the HAPIKids Zone and Lactating Area, May 3 at West Terminal, Barangay Aguada.
Funded by Gender and Development with a project cost of P600,000, it has areas where nursing mothers who are travelling to and from Isabela City, can wash up, breastfeed, or express and store their milk for later use, as well as a second lactation station established in the city.
Mayor Turabin-Hataman thru the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) also provided kids who were playing at the HAPIKIDS ZONE with toys for them to bring home.
The HAPIKids Zone and Lactation Area is a local government initiative that promotes the welfare of nursing mothers and their children. It will also function as a daycare center where mothers can now safely leave their small children. (Words by SJ Asakil/Photos by M. Santos, CIO)
