Iliganons benefit from Barangayanihan caravan

ILIGAN CITY (PIA) — Residents of  Barangay Tipanoy and neighboring villages in Iligan benefitted from the Barangaynihan Caravan initiated by the Iligan City Police Office (ICPO) Friday, October 29.

City Police Director PCol. Wilbur Salaguste said the Barangayanihan caravan is a collaboration between government agencies as well as volunteers from the global coalition advocacy groups and force multipliers to bring government services closer to the people.

“The campaign aims to inform the public about the government’s programs, policies, accomplishments, and efforts to bring about real change to the lives of the Filipino people by showcasing the implementation of policies and programs,” he said. 

Among the agencies present were the City Social Welfare and Development Office which provided relief supplies and supplemental feeding to residents. The City Agriculture Office also offered free seedlings and highland vegetables at a very affordable price under its Kadiwa program.

The Amai Pakpak Medical Center (APMC) conducted medical outreach, free circumcision, and bloodletting activity while the ICPO offered free haircut for children.

The Rotary Club of Iligan South also joined the caravan by providing free milk tea to children and other residents availing of government services.

Other agencies present were the Department of Labor and Employment thru its Lanao del Norte Provincial Office, Department of Interior and Local Government, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority thru its Regional Training Center, Philippine Information Agency, Philippine Army, and the National Intelligence Coordinating Agency.

One of the highlights of the caravan was the signing of a memorandum of agreement between the APMC and ICPO for the conduct of semi-annual bloodletting activity in Iligan City.

Salaguste thanked the participating agencies for their unwavering commitment to providing services to Iliganons.

“Dako akong pasalamat nga aniya diri atong mga national line agencies nagtambayayong, nagbugkos, naghiusa para atong ipahatud ang serbisyo sa katawhan diri sa Brgy. Tipanoy,” he said.

[I am very grateful that our national line agencies are here working together, binding, and uniting so that we can deliver services to the people here in Brgy. Tipanoy.]

The ICPO chief also assured that the collaboration will continue so that more Iliganons especially those in far-flung areas will be served.

“Dii lang ni karon, kung dili moabot pa sa daghan pang mga panahon kay  gusto nato ipahatud ang serbisyo sa katawhan labi na sa mga less fortunate aron inyong makita kung unsay gihimo sa atong panggobyerno aron maibsan ang kakulangon sa atong kinabuhi,” Salaguste further said.

[This will not end here but it will continue because we want to deliver service to the people especially to the less fortunate, so you can see what our government is doing to alleviate the scarcity in our lives.] (APB/PIA Lanao del Norte]
