COTABATO CITY — The Office of Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) Member of Parliament (MP) Atty. Rasol Y. Mitmug, Jr. in partnership with Anak Mindanao Partylist distributed last July 26, 2020 health care items to residents of the municipality of Lumba-Bayabao in Lanao del Sur.
In a simple turn-over ceremony held at the municipal town hall, Mayor Mahar Dagalangit and Vice-Mayor London Dagalangit received the healthcare items for distribution to its 38 barangays. In an interview, MP Mitmug said over the past few months, his office has united its efforts with the Anak Mindanao Partylist and the Bangsamoro region in extending assistance to the local government units, barangay frontliners and volunteers.
“This time around, we extended our assistance to the good people of Lumba-Bayabao. Our team has facilitated the distribution of meals, Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), facemasks, gallons of alcohol, hands-free alcohol dispensers for the health workers and other frontliners of the locality,” MP Mitmug said.
The Member of Parliament also stressed their move hopes to augment the resources of the Barangay local government units (BLGUs) and its devoted frontliners in their efforts to fight and contain the spread of Covid-19.
“What we are facing right now is an urgent matter, so our response should also be immediate. If there’s one realization out of this Covid-19 experience is that we are all in one human community and that is no one is safe from this enemy,” he stressed.
On the same day, a total of 5,000 sacks of rice were distributed to the constituents as part of the ongoing BARMM government’s Covid-19 Relief Assistance Program (Project TABANG) with assistance from the Offices of Members of Parliament Sultan Edrieza Rimbang, Abdullah Macapaar, Basit “Jannati Mimbantas” Abbas and Marjanie SM Mimbantas.
Meanwhile, MP Mitmug said local government officials down to the barangay level and other volunteers were also part of the team who helped in the distribution of the healthcare donation and relief assistance.
