Tagum City Vice Mayor Eva Lorraine Estabillo led Monday, April 5, the launching of the local government unit (LGU)-initiated caravan of services for the residents in the city.
The “Hugpong Serbisyo para sa Tagumenyo Festival,” which was launched at the Tagum City hall atrium, is a highly anticipated annual delivery of medical, agricultural, social, and other related services, which was cancelled last year at the height of the community lockdowns due to Covid-19 pandemic, the city government said.
“Instead, the city government’s manpower and resources were focused towards conducting surveys, packing and distributing relief goods, and handing cash incentives to indigent Tagumenyos,” it said.
Conforming to the new normal, the local government said the Hugpong Serbisyo’s services, such as circumcision, tooth extraction, and medical operation for removing cyst were not available this year.
The one-stop-shop of services is set to visit the different barangays in Tagum starting April 7.
“Strict health protocol implementation will be imposed on all venues of the caravan,” the city government said.
