VILLAVICIOSA, Abra, July 12 (PIA)-- The Provincial Government of Abra (PGA) reaches out to the different municipalities of the province with goodies and services for all barangays officials who stood up and continue to carry on their responsibilities as local frontliners in the fight against the Corona Virus Disease (Covid-19).

Through the leadership of Governor Maria Jocelyn "Joy" Bernos, Vice-Governor Ronald S. Balao-as and the Provincial Board Members, the initiative dubbed as "Sagut ti PGA Kadagiti Dadaulo" #TulongKadagitiTimmulong" recognizes the efforts of local officials in keeping their communities safe and free from Covid-19.

"It is so gratifying to realize all the efforts, commitment and dedication of our local officials in protecting their areas, families and neighbors from Covid-19. With this we appreciate all that you have done for your community." Bernos said in her speech in Villaviciosa.

Each barangay official received food pack and cash incentive from PGA. Bernos also sponsored free haircut for the local officials called "First Gupit After Covid".

"Hard times reveal true friends, and in the midst of this crisis that we are facing, the PGA has not failed to show us their support and care," Villaviciosa Mayor Jose Lagen Jr. said.

To date, Abra has one active CoVID-19 case. Eight of the nine confirmed cases have already recovered. (JDP/CAGT-PIA CAR, Abra)
