BALER, Aurora – The Army’s 91st Infantry “Sinagtala” Battalion launched on Saturday an enhanced Adopt-a-Barangay (Kapwa ko, Sagot ko) program in Barangay Calabuanan here to help indigents amid the threat of coronavirus disease (Covid-19).
Lt. Col. Reandrew Rubio, acting commander of the 91IB, said the program is a call to love and help fellow Filipinos in times of challenges.
“It aims to help those families who need the most help,” he said.
Rubio, in coordination with the village officials and Sangguniang Kabataan distributed 120 food packs to the indigents in Barangay Calabuanan.
“The SK official and barangay officials recommended those residents to be given food packs as they are affected by the enhanced community quarantine,” Rubio said in a phone interview.
He also said that the other company under the 91st IB will also do the same activity at the soonest time to help the communities most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rubio also lauded his troops for the initiative and untiring services they offered to the people.
“I commended them for their concern and love for the people of Aurora. They give their share from their own pockets to send aid to communities that need it,” he added. (PNA)
