“The Iloilo City Government turned over a Japanese bike each to 21 barangays that will protect the welfare of our residents as well as provide mobility for our tanods,” he said.

Treñas said that another 21 Japanese bikes were also forwarded through the donation of Uswag Ilonggo, and 12 were donated by the Iloilo Festivals Foundation Inc.

“We have always looked for ways and means to ensure that everyone is safe especially this time where we need to be extra careful to save a life,” he said.
