Alagang Tingog Center opens in Binalonan and Urdaneta City

Pangasinenses see brighter hope with the formal opening of the 89th Alagang Tingog Center, which will stand as a manifestation of a stronger partnership between the leaders of the province and the Tingog Partylist under the leadership of House Speaker Martin Romualdez.

Gov. Ramon V. Guico III, 5th district Congressman Ramon Guico Jr., and Binalonan Mayor Ramon Ronald V. Guico IV, together with the Tingog Partylist led by Rep. Jude Acidre and Deputy Sec. Gen. Glen Rufino spearheaded the opening of the two Alagang Tingog Centers, specifically in Binalonan town and in the City of Urdaneta, on November 23.

 

Some 2,000 beneficiaries from the 5th district received cash in the amount of P3,000.00 each from Tingog Partylist, as well as food packs containing rice, sardines, and noodles.

Apart from this, the Alagang Tingog Center aims to provide medical assistance, livelihood programs, educational assistance, and burial assistance to Pangasinenses.

During the opening, Gov. Guico personally expressed his thanks to Speaker Martin Romualdez and Congresswoman Yedda Marie Romualdez for their assistance and support for Pangasinan.

The governor said that the biggest problem in Pangasinan is the lack of doctors and equipment in its 14 hospitals.

This prompted Gov. Guico and his father, Cong. Guico to seek assistance from Speaker Romualdez. Immediately, they got the nod to their request, and in less than two months, funds were provided for the provincial hospitals benefiting the underprivileged through the Medical Assistance for Indigent Patients and Financially Incapacitated Program (MAIP).

Likewise, Mayor Guico thanked Tingog Partylist for choosing Binalonan as an avenue to help and share their collective responsibility as members of society—the imperative to give voice to the voiceless—which, to the mayor, is what Tingog is all about.

Meanwhile, Rep. Acidre said that the undertaking is an act of reciprocating the good deeds extended to them by the province when super typhoon Yolanda devastated Tacloban, Leyte, 10 years ago.

“Noong panahon ng aming pangangailangan, kami ay inyong tinulungan. Ngayon, kami naman ang magsusukli sa kabutihan na inyong inabot sa amin. Ang binubuksan natin ngayong umaga ay hindi lang basta tanggapan. Sana ay maging simula ito ng mas matibay na ugnayan at pagsasamahan na sa bawa’t pagkakataong makatulong, asahan ninyong magiging katuwang ninyo ang Tingog Partylist,” Acidre added.

Present during the significant undertaking were 5th district BM Nicholi Jan Louie Sison, 5th district BM Rosary Gracia Perez-Tababa, mayors of the 5th district, vice mayors, and barangay captains.
