PRO 8 Raises 8.9 Million for Team PNP Fund Challenge Amid COVID-19 Crisis
Camp Ruperto Kangleon, Campetic, Palo, Leyte – The Police Regional Office 8 (PRO 8) under the leadership of PBGEN BERNABE MENDOZA BALBA, with the support of its Regional Headquarters Support Unit 8 (RHSU 8), Police Provincial Offices (PPOs), City Police Offices (CPOs) and Regional Mobile Force Battalion (RMFB 8), raised about Eight Million Nine Hundred Seventeen Thousand and One Hundred Seventy-Five Pesos (Php 8, 917, 175. 00) from individual voluntary contributions among its PNP personnel on April 18, 2020.
This initiative is an offshoot of a fund-raising project launched by PGEN ARCHIE FRANCISCO F GAMBOA, CPNP on April 14, 2020 dubbed as “Team PNP Bayanihan Fund Challenge” which calls on all the PNP personnel, regardless of rank and position, to practice the spirit of volunteerism to aid in augmenting funds in support for the Social Amelioration Program (SAP).
This is the PNP’s response to Presidente Duterte’s call for the entire Filipino nation to raise funds to support the campaign of the government and help those who are greatly affected by the COVID-19 crisis especially those belonging to the poorest of the poor families.
“The men and women of PRO 8 are one with the government in its effort to help save lives of our fellow Filipinos from the socioeconomic impact brought about by COVID-19 pandemic. We are doing this voluntarily to help ease the burden suffered by our country in this time of national health emergency,” says RD BALBA.
RD BALBA also believes that through these collective efforts, a simple act of kindness within the organization will certainly go a long way in assisting our fellowmen survive this protracted crisis.
