Hundreds of residents in Dingalan town, this province, availed of various public services during the conduct of a “Serbisyo Caravan” on Monday.
The activity was initiated by the Dingalan Municipal Task Force–End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) chaired by Mayor Shierwin H. Taay, together with the Alpha Company of the Army’s 91st Infantry (Sinagtala) Battalion, 7th Infantry (Kaugnay) Division and other local government agencies.
Taay said among the basic social services that benefited some 671 residents in Barangay Aplaya included a feeding program, medical check-ups, appliance repair, free haircut, manicure, and pedicure.
The mayor said the activity is a continuation of the municipal government’s strengthened commitment and support to the residents amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
“Our continued support to our beloved kababayans (townmates) really means a lot to us, especially during this challenging time. The ardent support of our partner agencies leads to the realization of this Serbisyo Caravan. With that, we are so grateful for making this event a reality,” he said in an interview.
The Serbisyo Caravan is aligned with the National Task Force-ELCAC’s programs to ensure that people living in remote barangays are being provided with free government services and assistance.
Taay said it is the local government’s contribution to the government’s efforts, under President Rodrigo Duterte’s whole-of-nation approach to end insurgency and attain inclusive peace and sustainability. (PNA)
