A total of 726 indigent residents from various barangays of E. B. Magalona have received their wages from the Department of Social Welfare and Development Regional Office 6, under its Risk Resiliency Program-Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Disaster Risk Reduction cash-for-work (CFW) program, Nov. 24.
The payout at the public plaza, in coordination with the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office, benefited 626, who worked under the Zero Open Defecation (ZOD) program, while the other 100 beneficiaries helped in the rehabilitation of child development centers (CDCs) in their respective barangays.
Mayor Marvin Malacon thanked the beneficiaries for helping their communities through this program.
“We appeal to all to stop open defecation and we would like to remind our beneficiaries to take care of your latrines and toilets. Please prioritize good hygiene and proper sanitation in order to avoid diseases and other health problems,” Malacon stressed.
In this CFW program, the municipal government, through the Municipal Health Office, distributed latrines to the beneficiaries in barangays Alicante, Damgo, Gahit, Tabigue, Tomongtong, and San Isidro, under the ZOD program of the Department of Health.
Other beneficiaries repaired the CDCs in barangays Alicante, Gahit, Madalag, Pasil, Poblacion 2, Poblacion 3, San Jose, and Tanza, a press release from the town said. ||
