He added that currently, they already master listed more than 5,000 children.
“Consent sa parents dapat naa, same procedure sa kadtong 12 to 17. The only difference mas gamay ang dosage sa 5-11 unya lahi pod ang ilang vial, lahi ug color para dili magkabaylo,” he added.
(The consent of the parents should be there, same procedure as that of our 12 to 17. The only difference is that the dosage for 5-11 and the vial is different, it is in different color so that it will be interchanged.)
