Hands on talaga! Albay Gov. Bichara leads medical mission, ESA distribution in Rapu-Rapu island


Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara has led the medical mission team that visited Island of Rapu-Rapu yesterday, April 26.

The team conducted a medical, dental, and optical mission, as well as an Emergency Shelter Assistance Payout for the residents of the said municipality.

“The PGA team brought with them doctors, nurses, social workers, and a plethora of medical supplies, such as wheel chairs, eye glasses, and medicine to provide medical, dental, and optical assistance to residents who otherwise have limited access to these services,” said the province.

Gov. Bichara distributed more than 7 million pesos emergency shelter assistance for the residents of the said municipality.

Each beneficiary received P10,000 from the Department of Social Welfare and Government in partnership with Albay provincial government.

In his message, Bichara told the people of Albay that he wants them to personally receive the assistance from the government.

The Governor thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for quickly acting upon his request for the financial assistance to the Albayanos.

The Governor also added that the Capitol plans to build roads in the island to allow farmers easier access to delivering their goods to the city center to reduce costs and make easier delivery of the produce to their designated markets.
