Three hundred indigent children in Sta. Catalina benefited from a feeding program of District 2 Councilor Miguel “Mike” Alavar III and the Food Processor Association of Zamboanga (FPAZ) last Saturday.

Parents and barangay officials led by Chairman Belman Malandi, Kagawad Jimmy Villaflores and Dante Alviar thanked Alavar for giving priority to their barangay in his feeding program.
Alavar said that last Saturday’s occasion was part of a continuing program of FPAZ which started five years ago where indigent children are given priority.
Another program of FPAZ is the conduct of free livelihood training for barangay folks.

“We started this kind of program few years ago in one of the barangays and we continue it with the aim to covering all 98 barangays. Edsel Acuña, our president, is not only my partner in the livelihood training but also in feeding the children,” Alavar said.

A mother of two children said that Alavar is a true public servant as he is very concerned with the welfare of the people and sincere with his intention.
“We did not expect that Alavar would visit our place again after the election and we were surprised when he brought food for our children,” said another woman.
“I feel glad whenever I see the happiness in the face of every young kid while accepting the food we prepared for them,” Alavar remarked.

Meanwhile, Alavar turned over two brand new BP apparatus to the Sta. Catalina Health and Wellness Center during its blessing and inauguration last Saturday.
The two medical apparatus were officially handed over to the center personnel who promised to take good care of it.
The apparatus were immediately tested on no less than Mayor Celso Lobregat and Malandi. — Dan Toribio Jr.
