Councilor in Koronadal City gives solar lights for residents living on top of a mountain

KORONADAL CITY, Philippines — City Councilor Maylene Bascon-De Guzman gave a “gift” to several families living on top of a mountain in Barangay San Jose of this city.

A member of B’laan tribe living there said its a kind of “gift” that would remain in their hearts forever.

“Salamat gid sa imo kaayo Konsehal Maylene. Hindi ka gid namon malipatan. Magapabilin sa amon mga tagiposoon ang imo kaayo sa amin (Thank you for your kindness Councilor Maylene. We will not forget you. Your kindness will remain in our hearts),” the B’laan resident said.

In a messenger interview, Councilor De Guzman said she felt pity on the plight of the people living on top of the so called “high point” of Barangay San Jose, a gateway to nearby Columbio town in Sultan Kudarat province.

The residents living on top of the San Jose’s “high point” have long been longing for light. Everyday, they are praying that someone would give them free solar lights.

And after years of praying, God touches the heart of Councilor Maylene Bascon-De Guzman.

“Ramdam natin ang kanilang nararamdaman na mamuhay sa paligid na madilim. Kaya nagpa-install ako ng dalawang solar lights sa lugar nila,” Councilor De Guzman told DIYARYO MILENYO in a messenger interview this evening.

After installing the said solar lights, her staff Jennifer Miles immediately posted the “good news” to her fb account.

“Good news! Dako gid ang pagpasalamat sang katawhan sang HI POINT Brgy. San Jose Koronadal City labi na gid ang Aton mga IPS sa Pagbutang ni City Councilor Maylene May BASCON-DE GUZMAN sang duwa(2) ka SOLAR STREET LIGHT kahapon Nov. 11, 2020.” (RASHID RH. BAJO)
