Surigao del Norte PPO implements ‘barangayanihan’ program

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte, Jun. 3 (PIA) -- With the impacts of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) that keep devastating the lives and livelihood globally, the Surigao del Norte Provincial Police Office (SDN-PPO) is advancing the ‘Barangayanihan Help’ or ‘Bayanihan’ in barangays and food bank.

It aims to help the communities especially now that heightened restrictions are imposed with the implementation of the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) in Surigao City and other municipalities within Surigao del Norte province.

Recipients can avail of the food and non-food items such as rice, coffee, milk, sugar, vegetables, eggs, canned goods, noodles, soaps, and other essential goods that could help in supporting the daily needs of a family.

“Barangayanihan is part of the police community program that would enhance the bayanihan spirit of helping one another especially this time of COVID-19. Ang hangarin ng proyektong ito ay paigtingin ng inyong kapulisan ang iba’t ibang paraan ng pagbibigay ng tulong sa ating community,” said PCol. Noel C. Espinoza, provincial director of the Surigao del Norte PPO.

According to Espinoza, the said program also aims to encourage other stakeholders to voluntarily take part in giving assistance to fellow citizens.

“Sa ngayon, mayroon na po tayong naitalang 176 na barangayaihin actvities na ginawa ng iba’t ibang police station na nassakupan ng Suriao del Norte PPO sa buwan lamang po ng Mayo at mayroon naring 3,036 na natulongan ng programa,” said PCol. Espinoza.

The police troops also distributed leaflets on anti-terrorism and vaccination against COVID-19 to provide additional knowledge to the public.

The Barangayanihan covers all police community relations support activities and underscores the Philippine National Police (PNP) motto which is “to serve and protect.”

“Nagpapasalamat po kami dahil sa gitna ng kahirapang tinatamasa naming ngayon dulot ng pandemya  ay nabigyan pa rin kami tulong. Salamat karajaw!” said Luzviminda Anario, resident of barangay Punta Bilar, Surigao City.

Meanwhile, Surigao del  Norte PPO appeals to the Surigaonons to continue helping the police authorities; follow the health protocols; and to stay at home to prevent the spread of the virus.

“Umasa po kayo na ang inyong kapulisan sa buong Surigao del Norte ay laging handa at patuloy na tatangkilikin ang mga programa para matulungan ang ating mga kababayan lalo na ngayong apektado ang lahat sa pandemya. Patuloy pa tayo sa pagsunod sa itinakdang curfew hours nang sa ganun ay hindi po tayo malagay sa alangaanin. Umasa po kayo na patuloy po ang pamimigay namin ng mga alcohol at face masks,” said PCol Espinoza.

At present, police officers are deployed to render service at the designated checkpoints and continue with the monitoring and enforcement of laws. (VLG/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
