An additional 438 Banago residents received medical, burial, and educational assistance from the Department of Interior and the Local Government (DILG), through the agency’s ELCAC-Local Government Support Fund-Support to Barangay Development Program at the Banago Elementary School Gym on December 24.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia, Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran and Banago Barangay Captain Ricky Mijares led the third batch of payout to the beneficiaries.

Of the 438 beneficiaries, 37 received burial assistance, 178 received medical assistance and 223 received educational assistance.

“If you ask me if I love Banago, I do love Banago. This is the barangay that I have visited the most,” Leonardia said.

“Congratulations to Barangay Banago because you are the only one in 61 barangays all over Bacolod who will receive this. We give credit to Mijares and officials. They know that you are deserving of this,” the mayor added.

Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran also reminded them to remain vigilant and observe minimum health protocols.

It’s because of the vaccination program of the city that cases now are mostly asymptomatic and mild, Familiaran added.

“Our mayor is always here for Barangay Banago,” said Mijares, adding that it was through the efforts of Mayor Leonardia that the DILG was able to extend the ELCAC assistance.

College students received P10,000, senior high school beneficiaries got P5,000 and P3,000 were given to junior high students as educational assistance.

Also present during the turnover were Councilors Renecito Novero, Carl Lopez, and Israel Salanga.

Grupo Progreso members Ed Guillem and Marlon Solidum were also with the group during the ceremony together with the Barangay council.*
