The Philippine Army’s 91st Infantry (Sinagtala) Battalion and the 7th Infantry (Kaugnay) Division on Monday took part in a “Serbisyo Caravan” at Dingalan town, Baler, Aurora, which benefited hundreds of residents.
The Dingalan Municipal Task Force – End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC), led by Mayor Shierwin H. Taay, spearheaded the activity. Other local government agencies also aided the aforementioned activity through various public services.
Taay stated that among the essential social services provided to 671 Barangay Aplaya residents were a feeding program, medical check-ups, appliance repair, and free haircut, manicure, and pedicure.
According to the mayor, the activity is a continuation of the municipal government’s increased commitment and support to citizens in the midst of 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,” Mayor Taay said.
The Serbisyo Caravan is connected with the activities of the National Task Force-ELCAC to ensure that residents living in outlying barangays receive free government services and assistance.
Taay stated that it is the local government’s contribution to the government’s efforts, as part of President Rodrigo Duterte’s entire-nation approach to ending insurgency and achieving inclusive peace and sustainability.
