Elements of the Eastern Police Police under the direct supervision of PBGEN JOHNSON C ALMAZAN, DD, EPD in coordination with District Logistics Unit and DMFB initiated Oplan “Libreng Sakay” for the people within their area of responsibility.
The initiative is geared to provide transportation assistance to those who are affected by the suspension of mass transportation on account of the ECQ.
NCRPO Chief PMGEN DEBOLD M SINAS commended his men for their selfless initiative to go beyond their call of duty amid the CoViD 19 pandemic.
“I am elated to know that my men went beyond what is expected of them to help other people as we face the hurdles brought by CoViD 19 pandemic,” said PMGEN SINAS.
EPD utilizes a 16 seater truck to serve almost 1500 market goers in 19 days already and will continue until the ECQ is lifted. It traverses the route from Pasig Mega Market to Pasig Rotonda, Brgy Bagong Ilog, Brgy Pineda, Brgy Oranbo and Kapitolyo and vice versa.
While on board, it is ensured that ECQ related protocols are implemented such as social distancing and wearing of face masks.
“This initiative reflects the innate good samaritan in each of us especially amid our battle against the unseen. This health crisis may have brought a lot of negative changes in the world we once knew but beyond that, it also highlighted the goodness in the hearts of those who took a step to alleviate the sufferings of the most affected sectors of society.” he added.
