Rioneil Ramirez Morquianos, Tingog Political Affairs Officer III, said the Tingog group was accompanied by Batch 8 Brotherhood Inc. led by its President, Johnny Yu Uy.

Batch 8 Brotherhood Inc. is composed of various groups of fire volunteers and medics who trained overseas to further improve their disaster response and firefighting skills.

They worked as an operation arm for the Manila Batch 8 Brotherhood Lions Club during the Yolanda relief operations in 2013.

For one week, the volunteers worked daily with the Tacloban local government in their search and recovery operations and aided in the distribution of donations and medical equipment from both local and international communities.

The vaccination event was hosted by the Bacolod Chamber Volunteer Fire Brigade (BCVFB) of the Bacolod Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (BFCCCI).

Most of the beneficiaries were Bacolod City residents and members of the Chamber Volunteer Fire Brigade, Bureau of Fire Protection and Armed Forces of the Philippines.

BFCCCI President Edgar Sy was part of the relief operations in Tacloban City along with Fire Chief of Chamber Volunteer Fire Brigade Bryant C. Lao who pledged to fully support Tingog Party-list in the upcoming 2022 national elections.

Stephen Chua, one of the volunteers, thanked Tingog for the free vaccination drive.

The teachers who got their free pneumococcal vaccines considered Tingog’s “malasakit” as an early Christmas gift.

Tingog also gave free pneumococcal vaccines to the Saint Ezekiel Moreno Monastery in Brgy. Tangub, Bacolod City for the 433rd Birth Anniversary of the Order of Augustinian Nuns-Recollects with their head Mother Carmen Orduña.

“It is truly an honor to serve and help the people,” the Tingog official said. By RIONEIL RAMIREZ MORQUIANOS
