Dagupan receives more blessings in one day


THE Dagupan City government was showered with blessings last Monday.

It received a new Dental Health Bus, Bottom-Up-Budgeting tool kits for livelihood program recipients, and three new patrol cars for the Dagupan City Police in just one day.

Mayor Belen T. Fernandez, July 6, expressed her sincerest thanks for the blessings that continued to pour on the city since she started her term as city mayor in 2013.

The new Dental Health Bus, the first of its kind in the city, came from the Department of Health.

“This will complement our vision of Alagang Balon Dagupan in providing our constituents a complete medical assistance which does not check only on their physical fitness, hygiene and sanitation through our “libreng paligo” program but also in helping them smile with confidence and ease their pains and sufferings as a result of their dental problems,” said Fernandez.

Recently, the city, in partnership with the University of Santo Tomas Medical Missions, conducted a two-day medical mission at West Central 1 Elementary School by giving free circumcision to 1,003 young boys and 190 minor operations.

Fernandez said that the city will soon forge a partnership with the Lyceum Northwestern University (LNU) and the Philippine Dental Association – Pangasinan Chapter to help the city in its future dental missions and the hiring of more city dentists.

On the same day, at least 190 graduates in the city’s Project B.E.L.E.N. or Better Education and Livelihood for Employment Needs in partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) were provided free tool kits which they can use in starting their own livelihood business.

The tool kits were provided by TESDA through the Bottom Up Budgeting program of the national government. They all came in complete set for the different training programs like fish capture, processed food (salting), dressmaking, cookery, hair cutting, manicure and pedicure, shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), and automotive (electrical).

Around 18 were enrolled in fish capture at the Pangasinan Technological Institute in Binmaley while 25 were also enrolled in the same school in processed food.

Another 25 were enrolled in dressmaking at Extendicare Training Center in Dagupan City; 25 were enrolled in cookery at Manila Montessori International Training Center in the city; 25 were enrolled in hair cutting at Maxima Technical and Skills Training Institute while 25 were also enrolled in manicure and pedicure in the same school; 25 were enrolled in SMAW at LNU while 22 were enrolled also on the same school.

On June 8, Dagupan will officially turn over three of the newly purchased Toyota Vios patrol cars to the Dagupan City Police Station (DCPS) through the city’s Chief of Police P/Supt. Christopher N. Abrahano.

“These new patrol cars were purchased by our city to complement our support to President-elect Rodrigo R. Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs and other crimes and by 2017 it is our intention to purchase two more patrol cars to support our PNP in maintaining peace and order in the city,” said Fernandez.
