Sultan Kudarat Mobile Force’s “Handog Pasasalamat sa Birthday Ko” program reaches Manobo village
SENATOR NINOY AQUINO, Sultan Kudarat, Philippines — Instead of inviting their families, friends and relatives to celebrate, members of the Sultan Kudarat Provincial Mobile Force Company (SKPMFC), who are celebrating and who will celebrate their birthdays this month, went to Sitios Paghidait and Taliwa of Barangay Sewod of this municipality and distributed food packs to the residents there.
Patrolwoman Mary Eileen Bautista, PNCO-PCAD of the SKPMFC based in Tacurong City, told DIYARYO MILENYO that the distribution of food packs is one of the best programs practiced by their unit dubbed as “Handog Pasasalamat sa Birthday Ko.”
Patrolwoman Bautista said SKPMFC Force Commander Police Lieutenant Colonel Roy Romualdo spearheaded the distribution of the food packs to the residents, mostly members of the Manobo-Dulangan tribe.
“Instead na mag birthday party ang tropa namigay na lang kami ng food packs sa mga residente. It became a tradition to the SKPMFC. Kahit malayo OK lang sa amin ang importante nakakatulomg kami sa mga tao kahit sa munting paraan man lang,” Patrolwoman Bautista said. (Rashid RH.
