Share post:

494 individuals were granted services through the All-in-One Bayanihan held at Barangay Pantikian, Balbalan, Kalinga on June 18, 2022.

GO SHARE Foundation, Breathe of Hope Foundation, Department of Education, Local Government Unit, Philippine National Police, Naval Special Operations Command, and the 50th Infantry Battalion joined forces in extending assistance to the locals. They rendered free medical and dental check-ups and handed free crutches and wheelchairs to the Persons with Disabilities.

Additionally, the inauguration of KLASRUM PAG-ASA or Breathe of Hope Library took place alongside the distribution of books and other educational materials. The building of the classroom is to encourage the youth in studying and not to waste time joining organizations related to the terrorist groups that were pronounced by the Anti Terrorism Council.

According to LtC Melanio Somera, Battalion Commander of 50IB, the All-in-One Bayanihan manifests that the services to the people are not only for the locals in the mainstream but also for the residents in the geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas. “Whole-of-Nation Approach does not mean- the government is working alone. But the success of the implementation is done through the assistance of the non-government organizations and the residents per se. So, hand-in-hand we will extend projects, programs, and services to attain inclusive peace and development in every community.” — PA
