LIVELIHOOD, SCHOLARSHIP AND HEALTH: FIRST LADY ANNE GORDON’S PRIORITY
Ang livelihood, scholarship at health ang tatlong programang higit ko pang tututukan at bibigyan ng karagdagang pondo,” Olongapo City First Lady and Zambales Vice Gov. Anne Marie Gordon said as she addressed the residents of Perimeter Extension, Brgy. Pag-asa at the Gordon HELPS Caravan on February 15, 2010.
“Maglalaan din ako ng malaking halaga bilang pondo ng James L. Gordon Memorial Hospital (JLGMAH) para ang mahihirap na pasyente nito ay hindi na kinakailangan pang mag-problema kung saan kukuha ng halagang ibabayad sa pagamutan,” added the First Lady.
Led by Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr., the Gordon HELPS Caravan is still doing the rounds of the seventeen (17) barangays of Olongapo City.
In the HELPS Caravan, Mayor Gordon reports projects that were accomplished, those that are still in the works and other future projects for the Olongapenos. Vice Mayor Cynthia Cajudo and City Councilors Gina Perez, Ellen Dabu, Rodel Cerezo, Nathan Manalo and Jhong Cortez and City Consultants Bugsy delos Reyes, Tet Marzan, Ed Piano, Romy Guerrero and Edna Elane are also regular participants in the HELPS Caravan to address their constituents.
The Gordon HELPS Caravan also provides free medical check-up and gives out medicines and vitamins, free tooth extraction, fillings and dentures.
Residents looking for jobs can find one through the Public Employment Office (PESO). Different skills trainings like livelihood, welding, computer, call center and housekeeping are also made available for the people at the Caravan.
