Marawi’s Raya Madaya 1 sees new brgy complex symbol of hope

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)–Following the inauguration of the new complex of Brgy. Raya Madaya 1 here Thursday, December 2, constituents conveyed they see this as a light, giving hope to their desire of being welcomed once again in their previous homes wrecked by the battle four years ago.

“Through the construction of this barangay complex, we can finally show our community not just a symbol of hope but an action and a tangible start of our rebuilding and returning to our home,” said former barangay chairwoman Asmenah Manabilang-Barambangan.

She stressed that this does not just signify they will be returning to their old places but also building a bigger and better barangay with all its residents.  

Apart from giving optimism that they could still return to their home, Barambangan added this is likewise a center of good governance where officials will work harder than ever to make sure they can slowly provide facilities and services their people deserve. 

Affirming this, Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) Chairperson Secretary Eduardo Del Rosario believed it would indeed be a major drive for barangay officials to energetically deliver services. 

The barangay complex of Raya Madaya 1, just like the other previously completed complexes, is also equipped with the chairman’s office, madrasah, and health center.

Mayor Majul Gandamra said this is one of the primary concerns they looked into as they believe capacitating the most basic unit of the government will ensure the development of the city.

As such, he urged the receivers to utilize it to lead every constituent to betterment to live up to the purpose of its construction.

“Bagama’t kami sa gobyerno ay patuloy na sumusuporta upang mabigyan ang lahat ng magandang buhay, ang tunay na pag-unlad ay nasa inyong kamay kaya gamitin natin ang lahat ng oportunidad na hinandog sa inyo ng inyong pamahalaan para sa ikabubuti ng pangkalahatan,” said Gandamra.
