Provincial LGU distributes vehicles for better health services, police visibility

by Dani Doguiles

KORONADAL CITY, Jan. 17 (PIA) -- In a bid to improve delivery of basic health services in remote barangays and increase police visibility along the national highway, the provincial government of North Cotabato recently distributed six vehicles and twelve refurbished motorcycles to several recipients.

The vehicles, all multicabs, were given on January 9 to barangays in the second district of the province, primarily for use in transport of indigent patients to nearest rural health unit or hospitals.

Among the recipients were of Barangay Kadingilan in Pigcawayan, Poblacion in Libungan and Simbuhay in Kabacan. These were received by their respective chairmen, namely: Kasamad Kamid, Cresencio Yu, and Abdullah Macaibel.

“This is part of our one barangay, one project policy where each far-flung barangay in the province will be given one multicab to facilitate medical needs especially of the indigent patients,” Cotabato Governor Emmylou “Lala” Taliño-Mendoza said.

The other three vehicles were turned over to fisheries section of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, the Civil Security Unit of the province, and the Cotabato Task Force for use in line with their respective objectives and responsibilities.

On the other hand, the motorcycles were handed over to the Provincial Police Office through P/SSupt Cornelio Salinas for the purpose of intensifying highway patrol operations and prevent street crimes in the entire province.

During the turnover ceremony, Governor Taliño-Mendoza also disclosed that the Partylist Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) has added P 15M to the provincial government’s existing budget of P10M for its multicab project.

“The assistance from the TUCP will enable us to purchase 75 units of multicabs. This means 75 more barangays will be assured of a more accessible health service,” she said.

On the same occasion, Taliño-Mendoza expressed her gratitude to the partners of the provincial government including the department heads and employees who helped ensure that funds of the provincial government will be used judiciously.

“This project is the result of our efforts of spending public funds prudently, I hope that we will all have the same commitment in the coming years for this will mean more projects and programs for the people of Cotabato,” she said. (PIA 12/OZG/IDCD-PGO North Cotabato)
