The International Organization for Migration (IOM) also supplied Basilan, through the office of Gov. Jim Salliman, eight biosafety refrigerators necessary for storing anti-coronavirus vaccines and solar generators for each refrigerator to ensure round-the-clock operability.

Salliman said the IOM also turned over to the provincial government facemasks, face shields, surgical gloves and protective shoe linings for their anti-COVID-19 frontliners.

“We are grateful to the IOM for its gesture. These supplies will enhance our campaign versus COVID-19,” Salliman said.

Basilan covers 11 towns and the city of Lamitan. It is a province under the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). Isabela City, a city on the island of Basilan, belongs to Region 9.

The IOM, a UN transnational humanitarian agency, provided BARMM last January with anti-COVID 19 biohazard equipment.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain, the United States of America and the German Humanitarian Assistance assisted the IOM anti-coronavirus program.
