Volunteer workers were honored for their invaluable contribution to the realization of the Unliserbisyo programs of Mayor Belen Fernandez during an awarding ceremony dubbed ‘Agew na Pinablin Lingkor na Baley na Dagupan’ on June 19 at the City Plaza.
The event, a culmination of the 75th Founding Anniversary of Dagupan City, recognized the vital roles of Barangay Captains, Barangay Nurses, Barangay Health Workers, Barangay Service Point Officers, Barangay Nutrition Scholars, Barangay Tanods, Barangay Librarians, Barangay Child Development Workers, Barangay Overseas Filipino Workers Focal Persons and Job Order Employees in delivering their unwavering services to the community.
“Last year, I declared the banner cry of my administration – ‘Iyalagey su Baley’ and I could not have done this alone. We could have only this with each other’s help and today, we say our biggest thank you to all our volunteers,” Mayor Fernandez stated.
The local chief executive, moreover, reaffirmed her full support to the volunteers who have carried on with their respective tasks despite financial setbacks with their regard to their benefits even as she announced an increase in the honorarium of barangay volunteers by 2024 to 2026.
