GMA Regional TV (GMA RTV) continues to be “Buong Puso para sa Pilipino” as it rolls out its “Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels” all over the Philippines.
“Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels” is a mobile version of GMA RTV’s “Kapuso Barangayan,” which is a community activity by GMA Network’s regional arm conducted in key barangays across the regions.
With the community quarantine being implemented in the country, GMA RTV continues to reach out to Kapuso in the regions via Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels’ going straight to the communities which badly need the essential items.
The first mobile barangayan in Western Visayas was held in Iloilo City last May 29. GMA RTV Iloilo provided free breakfast to more than 100 families in Barangay Bakhaw, Mandurriao.
Meanhile, Kapuso in the North Central Luzon were given aid at the barangayan held in Barangay Malued, Dagupan City last June 3. A total of 110 families were given grocery packs by GMA RTV Dagupan.
Last June 5, GMA RTV Cebu gave away fresh vegetables and poultry to 110 families in Barangay San Roque in Cebu City as part of the kick-off of the mobile barangayan in Central Visayas while GMA RTV Iloilo served breakfast to Barangay Nabitasan’s 120 families in La Paz, Iloilo City.
Coinciding with the celebration of the 122nd Philippine Independence Day, another Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels was held in Cebu last June 12 where more than 100 families in Barangay Jagobiao in Mandaue were given fresh vegetables and poultry.
”GMA RTV, as always, continues to be of service to our Kapuso all over the country, especially in this time of pandemic,” says GMA Regional TV Vice President and Head Oliver Amoroso. “We thank our partners — both from public and private sectors — in making each ‘Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels’ possible and a success. If we are willing to work together to help our fellowmen who have been placed at a disadvantage because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we can all recover together. Rest assured that we, at GMA RTV, remain committed to deliver local news that matters through our weekday local newscasts and morning programs, and reach out to communities in the regions through various initiatives. Stay home, stay safe.”
Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels will go around the country to visit more communities. While helping Kapuso in the regions, GMA RTV observes all preventive measures in conducting its outreach project. Aside from wearing proper PPEs and practicing social distancing, the teams involved undergo body temperature check using non-contact temperature scanners. They are also required to accomplish Daily Health Monitoring Form (DHMR) as part of managing the overall well-being of everyone.
