Governor Hilario P. Davide III and Vice Governor Agnes Magpale continued its cash incentive distribution to Alegria, Malabuyoc, and Ginatilan towns.
There were a total of 1004 barangay health workers, nutrition scholars, animal health aides, day care workers and tanods in the three (3) towns; 239 in Ginatilan, 346 in Malabuyoc, and 419 in Alegria.
Barangay Compostela in Alegria, which is now known for canyoneering activities, was given a multicab. The Barangay Sta. Filomena Women’s Association also got sewing machines for their livelihood project.
Alegria Mayor Verna Magallon also made known to the public the assistance the town received from the province.
Alegria is one of the towns who participated in the Cebu Midwest Ecotourism Project organized by the Capitol.
At least 13.5 million is set aside for the project which is meant to fill in the needs of the tourist spots in the midwest Cebu.
In Malabuyoc, Mayor Narciso Creus welcomed the distribution of cash gift to the barangay workers in his town. His son Vice Mayor Junjun Creus and wife councilor Daisy Creus were also present during the event.
Creus supported Gov. Davide’s opponent then third district Congressman Pablo John Garcia in the 2013 election.
He said he only obliged the Capitol’s request to provide a facility for the distribution. “Nalipay ko nga nia jud ang atong gobernador ug ilabina kong motilaw sa atong pinobreng giandam (I am happy that the governor is here and that he would taste the food that we served),” said Creus.
Creus added that the barangay workers really needed the cash to pay their debts and to buy basic needs.
In her earlier messages, Vice Governor Magpale reiterated that distribution of incentives is an annual affair to recognize and thank the barangay workers for their contribution in social services.
She added that every barangay worker in the province should get their cash incentive provided they are in the master list submitted by their barangay captains.
For those who failed to get their cash incentives, they can claim it at the Capitol on December 9. Those barangays who failed to submit their master lists, were immediately asked to submit so that the incentives would still be released within the year.
