Share this information:

IBA, Zambales — Senator Lawrence “Bong” Go was named an adopted son of Zambales for his support to the health services program of the province and his efforts to empower local governance and strengthen delivery of public service.

Governor Jun Ebdane Jr. presented Go a copy of the provincial board resolution adopting the senator as son of the province when the latter visited this town to inspect infrastructure projects he sponsored for funding.

“Without his support, these projects like the new Iba municipal hall and the super-health center would not have materialized at all. And the people of Zambales are really grateful for that,” Ebdane said.

Go, who authored the Malasakit Center Act of 2019, arrived here last Tuesday with Senator Robin Padilla to distribute assistance to indigent families in the community.

They also made an ocular inspection of the new GO Iba municipal building at Brgy. Dirita and the Super Health Center in Brgy. Bangantalinga.

Go said that as chairman of the Senate committee on health, he is pushing for the establishment of 304 superhealth centers all over the country. “These are bigger than your usual health centers,” he said.

“I want to strengthen the health system because we don’t know if this (Covid-19) would be the last pandemic we will experience,” he added.

In the resolution, the Zambales provincial board recognized Go’s “significant contributions, goodwill and support to Zambaleños” and cited the establishment of a Malasakit Center at the provincial hospital where indigent patients get medical assistance.

Go also “embodied the spirit of good governance and public service” and empowered the government of Zambales by pouring resources and aid to the province, the resolution added.

Aside from his projects for health delivery, Gogo had also provided assistance for agriculture and food security, sports and youth development, as well as fire prevention and protection among others, the Zambales commendation said.

The resolution commending Go and naming him as adopted son of Zambales was sponsored by Board Member Jun Rundstedt Ebdane and was unanimously approved by the provincial board.
