September 19, 2016 By

The City Government of Davao got a boost in its fight against mosquito-borne diseases after a private company donated 10 water-based fogging machines.

Ford Tractor Philippines (FTP) turned over 10 units of fogging machines that cost P35,000 each to the local government in a simple ceremony held at the City Administrator’s Office on Friday.

The machines were personally handed over by FTP branch manager Ligaya Ancheta to City Administrator lawyer Zuleika Lopez, City Legal Officer Raul Nadela Jr. and City Health officials.

Ancheta said company owner Samuel Uy responded to the city’s need in the wake of its intensified campaign against dengue cases.

Nadela, who is also chief of staff of Mayor Sara Duterte, thanked FTP for its generosity.

“The city appreciates the gesture of FTP,” he said. “This is such a big help to our intensified campaign against dengue.”
