"We are here now to cater to all your needs, all you have to do is to grab this opportunity, this is for you," Evardone added.

During a short program, the national agencies and provincial offices were given a chance to talk about the services, programs, and projects of their respective offices followed by the distribution of hygiene kits and medical kits to the nine barangays followed.
