“The 10 households were given a food package with 300 pesos cash, likewise, the Civil Registration Association of Guimaras (CRAG) also donated brooms and dust pans to the public market of Rizal,” Guimaras Provincial Statistical Officer Nelida B. Losare said.

Losare also said that coastal cleanup at Brgy. Rizal was lined up in the calendar of CRM celebration to mitigate garbage problem in some coastal areas in Guimaras.

“We are thankful for the strong support and cooperation of Brgy Rizal and we are glad that through this activity we inspired them to maintain the cleanliness of their coastal area and give them awareness about the importance of having clean surroundings.”

Losare emphasized that cleaning of surroundings and waste reduction, lowering overall environmental footprint and protecting the environment are important to every person’s survival, thus the activity must be sustained by the LGUs.

In response, Barangay Captain Eduardo D. Gando of Rizal thanked CRAG and PSA for the assistance and for choosing Jordan coastal area to clean with and be part of the 31st CRM celebration.

Gando assured the group that they sustain the cleanup in their community.
