The “Dia del Alcalde Beng Climaco,” a basic health and social services caravan of the city government, went to Barangay Culianan in the east coast yesterday morning and served more than 500 indigent residents in terms of free medical, dental and other services.

Mayor Climaco thought of the “Dia del Alcalde” in lieu of the traditional “Mayor’s Night” that every barangay would request during fonda nights in honor of its fiesta.

It was launched on August 7 in Barangay Tumaga, four days before its fiesta. Culianan, on the other hand, will celebrate in fiesta on August 15.

City Health Officer Dr. Rodel Agbulos, who supervised the activity along with the barangay officials of Culianan, said the “Dia del Alcalde” is a very laudable project of Mayor Climaco in line with her priority, which is the delivery of basic health services to the people in the barangays.

Among the participating agencies aside from the City Health Office were the City Social Welfare and Development Office, City Agriculturist’s Office, City Veterinarian’s Office, Office of the Civil Registrar and the Technical Education and Skills Administration (TESDA)

Services offered were tooth extraction, milk banking education, medical consultation for children and adults, veterinary services for the animals and free medicines. The TESDA provided trainings on baking, hair cutting, pedicure and manicure.

Also availed were civil registration at very low fee of P150 only instead of the usual P500 when availed at the Civil Registrar.

“Muchas gracias gyod kun Ma’am Beng y el gubierno local por este ayuda kanamun mga pobre. Bien grande ayuda ya este kanamun mga pobre kay nohay kame cen para anda na publo pra checkya na doctor,” a grandmother said.

“Bien alegre gyod y okay ya pwde ya yo rehistrea mio tres anak de P150 kada unu kay si anda kame na pueblo P500 kada unu ta kubra. Gracias gyod Ma’am Beng,” a mother said. — Vic Larato
