MANILA – One of the problems of residents in Barangay Sampaloc, Apalit, Pampanga is the lack of ambulance.

Barangay Sampaloc has a population of over 11,000 with majority of the residents being poor.

Chairman of the barangay, Melencio Catu said, every time a resident needs immediate medical attention, they can only deploy a barangay patrol vehicle for transportation  to a hospital.

“Kapag kasi marami ang mga kabalen natin, ang patrol namin hindi sila lahat naisasakay (If many residents need help they cannot all be accommodated on the patrol vehicle),” he said.

This prompted  Catu to request assistance from Kuya Daniel Razon, who immediately responded.

With help from Members Church of God International, UNTV did not only give an ambulance to residents of Barangay Sampaloc, but also a tricycle which barangay police can use in their patrols.

“Minsan ko lang sinabi kaagad niya ibinagay kaya very very proud ako. Masayang masaya talaga ako actually hindi ko naman hiningi yun kay kuya pero nagbigay din ng motor. Kuya, salamat maraming salamat po sa pinapakita n’yong pagsasama-sama natin ngayon. (I conveyed my request only once yet he immediately responded so I am very very proud. I am really delighted. Actually I did not ask from Kuya but he gave a tricycle. Kuya, thank you! Thank you very much for the camaraderie we had today,” said Catu.

“Ito po ay magagamit nila sa pagganap ng kanilang tungkulin, dagdag pa po ang tagubulin ng Kapatid na Eli [Soriano] at Kuya Daniel ang pagkakaroon po ng ambulansya na makakapagbigay po ng malaking serbisyo sa ating kababayan,” MCGI Representative Bro. Ricardo Erese said.

(They can use these in performing their duties. In addition is an ambulance from Brother Eli and Kuya Daniel which can render huge service to the residents.)

Along with these, the group conducted a medical mission in the barangay.

Over 300 residents received various services like medical, optical and dental services. Some were able to receive help for their legal problems.  — Joshua Antonio | UNTV News & Rescue
