Over 300 people including children availed of free medical and dental services during the “Dia del Alcalde” Program held in Ayala in line with the barangay’s fiesta celebration Friday, June 11.

Of the total number, 200 benefited from medical services and 50 availed of free dental services –all delivered by the medical and dental staff from the City Health Office (CHO). 50 other young boys availed of the free hair cut courtesy of personnel from the 11th Marine Battalion Landing Team (MBLT).

Over a thousand students from the Ayala National High School on the other hand, received free school bags which Mayor Beng Climaco personally funded and distributed as part of her advocacy on education.

The Dia del Alcalde program is an outreach activity featuring frontline services of the City Government. It is literally bringing the government closer to the people and coincides with barangay fiesta celebrations.

Aside from the CHO, personnel from the City Agriculturist Office also gave out free seeds and demonstrations to farmers while staff from the Civil Registrar’s Office rolled out services on official documentation of significant events such as birth and marriage among others.

The City Veterinarian’s Office likewise gave out free animal vaccination.

Meanwhile, the Dia del Alacalde program will visit barangays Quiniput on July 18, Lamisahan on July 24 and Sibulao on July 30. — Sheila Covarrubias
