Employees of two national government agencies and one from the local government unit have conducted on Friday an information caravan in a sea gypsy community in the Great Sta. Cruz Island, this city.

“We have advocated the importance of birth, death and marriage registration to the Sama-Bajaus who are staying in the island,” PSA Regional Director Mewchun Pamaran said.

Aside from the PSA, those who joined Friday’s caravan were employees of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the City Civil Registrar’s Office.

Pamaran said they were able to served at least 20 Sama-Bajau families during the caravan.

She said they also planted 100 mangrove propagules after conducting the information caravan.

She said the activity was in line with the celebration of the Civil Registration Month, which is anchored on the theme: “Makiisa…Makisali sa Dekadang Civil Registration and Vital Statistics.”

The observance of the Civil Registration Month every February is pursuant to Proclamation 682 issued by then President Corazon Aquino. — RGAAG
