Aspiring Olongapo City Mayor Arnold Vegafria and Zambales first district Congressional candidate Mitos Magsaysay have teamed up with the Frontliners Ang Bida Partylist for the welfare of people all over Central Luzon.
Vegafria, the Miss World Philippines national director, Magsaysay, and Frontliners Ang Bida Party-list first nominee Jayke Joson joined their act together for the people of Olongapo City over the weekend giving away gifts during the holidays.
“We, the Anak ng Gapo, would like to express gratitude to our partner in public service — Frontliners Ang Bida Partylist headed by first nominee Jayke Joson — for believing in us, believing in what we’re fighting for here at Olongapo City,” Vegafria said.
Joson, for his part, threw his support to Vegafria, Magsaysay, and to the rest of Anak ng Gapo for being on the side of the people during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in the region — where many have lost their jobs to the pandemic since two years ago.
“He [Vegafria] is your true super hero, your super frontliners during the pandemic. He is always there for you,” Joson said of Vegafria, who has distributed more than 5 kilos of rice with goodies to each of 80,000 families all over Olongapo since August as part of his drive to help his people.
Vegafria also provided lights in some dark areas around Olongapo by putting solar street lamp posts.
Besides these initiatives, the Miss World Philippines organization and Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) under chairman Vegafria also provides college level scholarship grants to deserving students from all over the country.
“Good thoughts, good words, good deeds — these are the trademarks of Anak ng Gapo led by aspiring mayor Vegafria and Congresswoman Mitos [Magsaysay],” Joson added. “I also support them for supporting our frontliners here in Olongapo.”
The Frontliners Ang Bida Partylist, according to Joson, will also help other cities and provinces near the area of Olongapo and Central Luzon by early next year.
Their main initiatives are to push for the double hazard pay, abolish the no-pay, no-work policy for sick frontliners, and tax-free allowance and free insurance policies for all the frontliners.
No. 111 Frontliners Ang Bida Partylist — one of the 166 partylist candidates in the next year’s May 9 national election — will vie for a potential 63 seats in the House of Representatives.
A Pamaskong Handog of Frontliners Ang Bida Partylist, Vegafria and Anak ng Gapo, meanwhile, treated thousands of people during the gift giving ceremony along with Miss World Philippines Katrina Llegado, Dindi Joy Pajares, and Dhan Dilla at the Marikit Park in Olongapo City on Wednesday night.
