MANILA, Feb. 4 (PNA) — In line with its community development efforts, the 11th Infantry Battalion, a field unit of the Capiz-based 3rd Infantry Division, deployed six “Bayanihan Teams” (BTs) in Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental Monday.
These “BTs” will be sent to Barangays Linantuyan, Luz, Plagatasanon, Banwage, Balogo and Humay-Humay.
Lt. Col. Willy Isaac, 11th Infantry Battalion commander, said that these units will be utilized for immersion and stakeholders’ engagement.
The “BTs” will be assigned at the barangays for three to four months where they will perform their duties as facilitators for the convergence of efforts with the local government units and other stakeholders to resolve socio-economic issues and ensure the delivery of basic services in the barangays.
Isaac emphasized that convergence among all stakeholders is the key in “winning the peace” and improving the well being of the community. (PNA)
