TARLAC CITY, April 14 (PIA) -- 3rd Mechanized Infantry Battalion (3rd MIB) conducted house-to-house relief operations in barangay Sula in San Jose town.

3rd MIB Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Norberto Aromin Jr. said the activity, done in partnership with the municipal government of San Jose and Bounty Fresh Corporation, aims to extend support to residents severely affected by Enhanced Community Quarantine and prevent communist terrorist groups from taking advantage of the crisis.

“The whole country is affected by this crisis. We must ensure that wage earners who depend only on a daily income, the physically disabled, the ill, and senior citizens do not go hungry. Hence, we prioritize aid for them,” Aromin said.

For his part, 7th Infantry Division Assistant Division Commander and Disaster Response Task Group Commander of Region 1 and Region 3 Brigadier General Manuel V. Sequitin emphasized the significance of Bayanihan spirit in the midst of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

"As the country and the rest of the world reel from the COVID-19 pandemic, generosity as imbibed in the Filipino Bayanihan spirit should be kept alive in our hearts, for those who have less, to also survive," Sequitin stated. (CLJD/TJBM-PIA 3)
