Health is wealth.

Barangay San Jose Sangguniang Kabataan Council, under the leadership of SK Chairman Monte Tolentino, wants to ensure that even though the youth of San Jose may not all be wealthy, they should at least be healthy.

Taking this into consideration the SK Council went to the far corners of Barangay San Jose – including Sitios Kaysakat and Tanza – to address the issue of the health of the youth of Barangay San Jose.

Barangay San Jose SK Council distributed health kits and vitamins, primarily Vitamin C, to help strengthen the immune system of the youth of Barangay San Jose and protect them against the common cold, sniffles, cough and other health issues.

As can be expected the youth and children of the sitios were only too happy for the attention and care of the SK Council of Barangay San Jose.

Among those present during the health kit distribution were San Jose SK Council’s Rey Rivera along with SK Kagawads Paolene Salvador and Mikko Suarez and SK Secretary Jackzon Remondavia.

Also present to help in the distribution were Janvier Gonzales, Leds Umangay, Bernie Beraquit, Lesther Libutan and Mhonic Salvador.

The SK Council represents youth who reside in the barangay and registered to vote there. The SK Council leads the local youth programs.

The SK is the assembly of youths in every barangay whose primary objective is to enhance the social, political, economic, cultural, intellectual, moral, spiritual and physical development of the youth in the country.
