PIAO extends help after TD Usman
Amidst the cry for help of the victims slaughtered by TD Usman, the Provincial Internal Audit Office (PIAO), headed by Atty. Francis P. Magistrado, readily responded by turning over 100 5-gallon containers filled with purified drinking waters to St. Francis of Assisi Parish’ Operations Center in Buhi, Camarines Sur last 05 January 2019.
Rev. Fr. Gary Adversario, who received the drinking waters on behalf of his parish, said that the donation of safe drinking waters is highly appreciated as they are experiencing scarcity of potable waters especially in the hard to reach areas of the locality.
This outreach activity is a humble gesture of PIAO in commiserating with the families affected by the said calamity. Also, it demonstrates PIAO’s commitment to fulfill its share in social responsibility.
Although the donation will only help a small number out of the tens of thousands families affected, PIAO believes that, even then, it can already go a long way. As the Greek fabulist and storyteller Aesop puts it – “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
