Ito po ay ang ating convergence bilang isang ahensiya rin na tumutulong sa ‘Bayanihan, Bakunahan’ ngayong araw (November 29) hanggang December 1,” said Yasmira Pangadapun, Provincial Social Welfare of MSSD Lanao Sur A who led the rice distribution at the Marawi City Hall Gym.

The National Vaccination Days dubbed as ‘Bayanihan, Bakunahan’ aims to achieve population protection through the convergence efforts of national government agencies, local government units, and the private sector to vaccinate some nine million Filipinos nationwide from November 29 to December 1, 2021.
