Capi­tol sets 4th ‘Car­a­van of Ser­vices’ in Os­lob

Cebu Daily News - - WHAT'S UP? -

The Cebu pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment will bring its health, agri­cul­ture, so­cial wel­fare, and en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion ser­vices to Os­lob town, south­ern Cebu this Septem­ber 16-18 in its 4th Car­a­van of Ser­vices.

Capi­tol started the ac­tiv­ity last year in Ba­dian, fol­lowed by an­other car­a­van in Ban­tayan Is­land. The third car­a­van was held in Camotes Is­land last March where P2.8 mil­lion worth of fi­nan­cial as- sis­tance was handed over.

“The last car­a­van was held in the north. This time, to bring the ser­vices in the south­east part of the prov­ince, we saw Os­lob as the most strate­gic lo­ca­tion,” Atty. Ramil Abing, Ex­ec­u­tive As­sis­tant V of the Pro­vin­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tor’s Of­fice said in an in­ter­view.

Gov. Hi­lario P. Da­vide III and Vice Gov. Agnes A. Mag­pale will lead the car­a­van to­gether with the mem­bers of the Pro­vin­cial Board (PB), depart­ment heads, and other of­fi­cials. PB will also hold an out-of-town ses­sion dur­ing the car­a­van.

The agri­cul­ture of­fice will dis­trib­ute seedlings, fish­ing gears, and other agri­cul­tural equip­ment dur­ing the car­a­van while the so­cial wel­fare and health of­fices will give out wheel­chairs and health kits.

Free ra­bies vac­cines will also be given out to Os­lobanons and res­i­dents of neigh­bor­ing towns.

Aside from this, the res­i­dents will also re­ceive a free vac­ci­na­tion, de­worm­ing, vi­ta­mins, and an­tibi­otics for their cows and carabaos.

Mean­while, a land ti­tle dis­tri­bu­tion will be con­ducted through the land ti­tling project of the Pro­vin­cial Cadas­tral Coun­cil in part­ner­ship with 22 lo­cal gov­ern­ment units in Cebu.

In line with the cel­e­bra­tion of the In­ter­na­tional Coastal Cleanup Day, about 350 par­tic­i­pants will gather to­gether in a coastal cleanup in the shores of Daan­lung­sod, Os­lob on the first day of the car­a­van.

Over 2,750 se­nior cit­i­zens will also re­ceive Ha­lad Kang Lolo ug Lola packs which con­tain rice and canned goods.

A med­i­cal and den­tal mis­sion will be con­ducted as well, ben­e­fit­ting over 1,000 in­di­vid­u­als.
