The Pasay City Police’s “Barangayanihan” project has provided assistance to more than 200 families in the city on Saturday, June 12.
Pasay City police chief Col. Cesar Paday-os said the “barangayanihan” was being conducted as part of the police community program during the COVID-19 pandemic to enhance the bayanihan spirit.
Paday-os said the “barangayanihan” was held at Inland Bus Terminal at EDSA Barangay 152, Pasay City, with the participation of some sectoral groups to ensure the activity will be in order.
Indigent families at Barangay 152 were also given grocery packs, assorted vegetables, fish, bottled water, face masks, and IEC (information, education, and communication) materials to give them knowledge on the importance of following the basic health standards during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The city police said the “barangayanihan” is being conducted simultaneously by the different police stations at the Southern Police District under the leadership of Brig. General Jimili Macaraeg and with the help of National Capital Region Police Office chief General Vicente Danao.
