Through the Initiative of Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo, Senior Citizens from the municipalities of Pantar, Balo-i, and Matungao received 5 kilos of rice and a pack of adult milk from the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO).
A total of 73 elderly from Pantar, 575 from Balo-i, and 188 from Matungao gratefully received their relief goods from the PSWDO, headed by Ms. Annabelle Mendez.
This program is in celebration of the Elderly Filipino Week. This is also intended to urge other unvaccinated individuals in the municipality to get their jab of the vaccine for additional protection from COVID-19 and the rising threat of other variants.
“We are going from one municipality to the other to cater to more senior citizens and deliver these goods to them in the hope that our elderlies will be encouraged to get vaccinated and add another blanket of protection from the virus,” Ms. Medez said.
Also present during the distribution was the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office of each municipality and their respective PGO-CAD Municipal Coordinators, Jamalica Bacarat and Mina Tanggote. PIO-LDN
