Dubbed “I love La Union, I love my Barangay,” the inaugural activity was held at the governor’s own barangay of Canaoay, with the simultaneous conduct of medical and dental services, supplemental feeding, livelihood training, cooking seminar, distribution of vegetables seeds, anti-rabies vaccination, free legal consultation, among others.10-09-pacoy-02

“During the first 100 days in office, I have done a lot of assignments that give my services to the people in every barangay. This is my mission in the provincial government,” Ortega III, who
succeeded his father Manuel as governor, said.

The program will be implemented in other villages that need immediate services from the provincial government.

“I believe that charity begins at home. We will bring all these services to all the barangays with the help of our partners and government agencies concerned,” he stressed.10-09-pacoy
