Government services caravan ends

CEBU - Indeed, hardships bring people together. Such synchronicity, synergy and cohesiveness of Cebu leaders and government agencies have been manifested once more in a show of force during the culmination of the “Caravan of Provincial Government Services” for the third quarter hosted by the Municipality of Argao.

No less than Sandiganbayan Justice Geraldine Faith Econg, who served as judge in Oslob for nearly a decade, joined the caravan to support the members of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Cebu Chapter headed by Atty. Cheryl Pamela Condat who, along with the Provincial Legal Office team, offered free legal consultation and services for the constituents of the second legislative district. 

Vice Governor Hilario Davide III, a native of Argao, joined the caravan for the first time in response to the governor’s invitation. “Bulahan kita dinhi sa Argao ug sa segundo distrito kay duna kitay gobernador nga nagpangga gyud kanato, nga manggihatagon kaayo, nga kanunay naghuna-huna sa inyong panginahanglanon,” Davide said in his speech. 

"Bisan dili mi pareha og grupo apan maayo gyud kaayo si Gov Gwen kanako. Og dunay kalihukan sa Kapitolyo 'nya imbitaron kita, magka-istoryahanay mi, maayo gyud kaayo ang among panaghisgutay,” he added. 

Davide called on Cebuanos to continue supporting Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia and her programs.

“Ipadayon ang inyong suporta ug pagsalig kang Governor Gwen Garcia, kay kahibalo na man kita nga siya ang numero unong gobernador sa numero unong probinsya sa Pilipinas,” he said. 

The Registry of Deeds in Cebu Province headed by Atty. Ariel Condat, joined in rendering free legal advice on real estate and property issues and helped in the distribution of hygiene kits from the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Cebu Chapter to caravan beneficiaries. 

Even the Department of Interior and Local Government also gave their share by distributing flip-flops to the people; the Department of Social Welfare and Development in the region gave food packs. Their involvement, including the Department of Agriculture, made the event a powerhouse of inspiration and faith that Cebuanos, affected by both the pandemic and super typhoon Odette, reclaim their lives and celebrate as normal people – back to normalcy.
