TANDAG CITY, April 27 (PIA) – The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Field Office in Surigao del Sur is all set for the May 1, Labor Day celebration.

According to Luth Longos, DOLE Provincial Head, the center for the said occasion is Butuan City, especially the main event, which is the Job Fair at Robinson’s Mall.

Longos stressed that all DOLE’s Field Offices in Caraga have already been instructed to disseminate the information by tapping the services of the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) managers in their respective areas to catch the attention of prospective jobseekers.

However, any applicant may also use the on-line pre-registration in any field office near them through the concerned Philjobnet Focal Person, he added.

Meanwhile, based on the data released by Genebelle Bal, chairperson of Labor Day Job Fair, over 260 job vacancies are up for grabs at the local level while a total of 16,571 more are open for placement to qualified overseas applicants that will be hired by 10 participating recruitment agencies.

DOH warns public on unidentified individuals performing health services

BUTUAN CITY, April 27 (PIA) – The health department of Caraga region issued an advisory to the public giving warning to be cautious on personalities claiming to be from the Department of Health (DOH).

DOH Caraga regional director Miverva Molon said that there are unidentified individuals claiming to be from or affiliated with their agency who are visiting houses and convincing households to allow them to check their blood pressure and conduct consultation.

Molon also said that these individuals will then persuade members of the household to purchase food supplements and medicines that they are selling, allegedly at a very low cost after performing the above procedures.

“I would like to inform the public that there is no such program being implemented by the agency, neither are these people licenses to sell drugs,” Molon said.

In addition, the sources of these drugs are unknown, posing doubts on their safety, quality and purity, Molon added.


Molon, therefore urges and advises the public not to entertain such personalities and instead, report such incidents immediately to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at the DOH Caraga regional office, Pizarro St., corner Narra Road, Butuan City or call 341-1595. (NCLM/PIA-Caraga)
