SAMAL, Bataan: Barangays here joined Saturday, January 6, 2024,  the nationwide observance of the National Community Development Day,  cleaning sidewalks, canals, rivers, creeks  and other public areas.

In Barangay Sta. Lucia, participants were equipped with walis tingting, rakes, shovels, hoes, empty sacks and even a grass cutter in the clean-up drive in different sitios.

It started with a short program and snacks of coffee and pandesal at the Barangay hall.

Sta. Lucia Barangay Chairman Hector Forbes led  newly-elected officials of the Barangay and Sangguning Kabataan, barangay employees, barangay Tanod, Barangay Health Workers, 4Ps and other volunteers in the clean-up.

“Ito ay programa ng ating Pangulong Bongbong Marcos.  Nais niyang mapanatili sa bawat barangay sa buong Pilipinas ang kalinisan.  Ang kalinisan sa Bagong Pilipinas ay isang programa na nais ng ating Pangulo na maitaguyod sapagka’t sa kalinisan doon natin matatamo ang ating kalusugan,” the punong barangay explained.

President Marcos has urged the public to join the National Community Development Day and asked the newly-elected BSK officials to start 2024 with the national clean-up program. The clean-up drive focusses on  the importance of the bayanihan spirit  for a healthier and safer environment.
