TACLOBAN CITY – Four resettlement sites in the northern part of this City benefited from the Caring, Giving, and Reaching out Program “Barangayan” of Mayor Cristina G. Romualdez in partnership with First District Representative Yedda K. Romauldez.
Held in Brgy. 105 – Suhi, residents of resettlement sites, namely Guadalupe, St. Francis Village, Greendale, and Lions availed of free City Government Services like free medical and dental consultation, haircut, reading glasses, feeding program, and hygiene kits distribution. The Office of Congresswoman Romualdez also distributed food packs consisting of rice, canned goods and noodles.

Senior PCUP Community Organizer Ritchel Radaza said that she appreciated the quick action of Mayor Romualdez when they requested that the program be held in their community.
