December 4, 2023. Para Sa’Yo Bangsamoro is a communication plan developed to help raise the awareness about the programs and services of BARMM including the rights and obligations of its people.
This campaign was successfully launched through a Community Assembly with Provision of Services in Support to Bangsamoro Transition on December 1, 2023 at Brgy. Balakayon, Pigcawayan, Special Geographical Areas- BARMM, with the support of honorable officials from the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
From the BTA were Hon. Ali Salik, Hon. Said Salendab and Hon. Kadil Sinolinding, Jr.
The Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE-BARMM) through its Bureau of Alternative Learning System (BALS) and the Office of the Cabinet Secretariat- OCM-BARMM were those coming from the Bangsamoro Government.
During the event, people of Balakayon listened to inspiring and educational messages from the officials of the Bangsamoro Government that were significant to be well-informed and updated about the current transition in the Bangsamoro and the continuing struggle towards peace and development.
Vulnerable groups in the village received basic social services during this activity such as free medical eye check-up, food packs, and education kit for the children.
Each office of BTA and BARMM who joined the assembly had a desk designated where they welcomed group of people and talked about their programs and services. Beneficiaries took this chance and raised their concerns and needs in their community.
In his message, MP Salik, recalled the times of war and struggle and told that the current progress in the Bangsamoro is among the fruits of those sacrifices.
MP Salendab told the people that his office and the office of the Bangsamoro Government is open for service. He reminded that all services available at present are part of the continuing struggle of the Bangsamoro.
“Let us have unity, love and help to one another”, he stated.
For MP Sinolinding, this activity was a great chance for them at the BTA to serve and help the public.
“We, who in the position, are not above you. We are here to serve you, to find ways to respond to your needs”, the official stated.
He is glad to see that people received not only free health service but also food packs and education kits.
