The City Government of Muntinlupa is ramping up efforts for dengue prevention with a series of events designed to involve the community in various clean-up initiatives.

Under the Make Your City Proud (MYCP) program, a volunteerism initiative by the city, residents are encouraged to participate in simultaneous clean-up drives across all barangays. Throughout the dengue prevention month this June, pocket events such as lectures on dengue prevention will also be held in various communities.

“Our fight against dengue requires a united effort from the entire community. Keeping our families safe is a shared responsibility, and I am grateful for our community’s active participation in these clean-up activities,” said Mayor Ruffy Biazon. “Together, we can significantly reduce the risk of dengue and create a healthier environment for everyone.”

Residents can sign up for the activities they wish to join, volunteer, and earn points under the MYCP program. These points can be exchanged for products from Kenny Rogers, Pancake House, grocery items, and more.

According to the World Health Organization, dengue is spread through the bite of the female mosquito (Aedes aegypti).
