Meanwhile, Mahintana and the Municipal Health Office team educated the youth and children about appropriate sanitation and hygiene at the barangay-covered court. Following the orientation, the team distributed a total of 100 hygiene packs to the participants. Continuing the activity, youth session named Healthy Young Ones composed a series of anti-smoking, anti-drug abuse, and adolescent reproductive health campaigns for 100 adolescents was conducted.

The support extended during the Linggo ng Kabataan celebration resulted from community consultation visits conducted in July with Mahintana, the local government unit, and security forces through the ProPEACE Programme.
