Officials of the 29 barangays (villages) of Orani, Bataan have all the reasons to rejoice what with renewed empowerment even at this time of pandemic when people from all walks of life seem worried about finances and public health situation.
The reason: Orani Mayor Efren E. Pascual, Jr, or simply “Mayor Bondjong” to local folks released last week P100,000 for each of the 29 barangays. The said amount shall be used to finance various infrastructure projects in the community. All barangays were asked to submit development plans about their community projects.
This is on top of other perks such as P5,000 allowance to all barangay councils and P1,500 quarterly allowance for all barangay tanods (village watchmen).
Meanwhile, preparations are now under way for the vaccination center in Barangay Mulawin, “We are now gearing toward the preparations to equip our first vaccination center in anticipation of the arrival of vaccines,” the mayor said.
The vaccine rollout in the next few days will have frontliners as priority sector, he said.
Pascual declined to comment as to what vaccine is preferred by Orani saying that he could not decide on the brand of vaccine. “It’s better to have vaccine than no vaccine at all, it is quite difficult now to decide what brand of vaccine we should have,” he added,
