The San Juan City local government distributed new equipment and food aid to all barangay watchers and Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association (TODA) members as part of its efforts to help San Juaneños get through the Covid-19 pandemic, , according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

In his official Facebook page, San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora posted photos of the distribution of new vests and food aid to all barangay watchers or tanods of the city at the city hall.

“Ito po ang ating munting paraan upang magpasalamat kami at bigyan ng pagkilala ang ating mga barangay tanod ng San Juan. Pinapahalagahan po natin ang ating mga tanod dahil sila po ang mga masisipag nating frontliners sa pagpapanatili ng kaayusan at katahimikan sa ating mga barangay (This is our way of showing gratitude and recognition to all barangay tanods of San Juan. We value these tanods because they are our frontliners who maintain the peace and order in our barangays),” Zamora said.


A total of 387 tanods from the 21 barangays of the city received the vests and food packs.

Meanwhile, 949 tricycle operators and drivers also received food packs from the city government which include rice, canned goods, and other grocery items.

“Alam naman po natin na napakataas na ng presyo ng diesel, at ito nga ay mabigat na alalahanin sa araw-araw nilang pamamasada. Kaya tayo naman po ay patuloy na humahanap ng paraan para makapag handog ng ayuda para sa ating mga tricycle drivers at operators at sa kanilang pamilya (We all know that fuel and diesel prices are so high, and this is their big concern in their everyday trips. That’s why we in the city government are continuously looking for ways to provide aid for our tricycle drivers and operators as well as their families),” Zamora explained.
