CSCRO No. 5 Making a Difference . . .

The weather was good in early morning on July 14, 2009 when a plane from Manila landed at Legaspi City Airport in Albay with a passenger on board to look for a man who, not known to many, touches the lives not only of his fellow government workers - but also of those residing in his community. A man who, due to hardship of life in Manila resettled in a Barangay somewhere in Estanza, a place without any means of transportation, to put up a structure he can call a home for his family. A man who loaned from a financing institution to purchase a motorcycle and thereafter organized motorcycle owners in his community to provide transport for their neighborhood. A man, who despite earning less than Two Thousand Pesos (P 2,000.00) monthly manages to donate their used toilet bowl to benefit the children of a public school in his community, deprived of clean toilet. A man who returned a wallet by searching for a woman whose picture appears in the walltet he found, whose husband was working as a technician on top of the highest peak in the entire Legaspi City. It is then but fitting to climb the highest mountain and to raise a flag if necessary for everybody to know that the good deed of this person is worthy to be emulated and for the public to know that government after all is on top of the situation with personnel who possesses the integrity worthy of the people's trust. There are other deserving individuals and groups from among the candidates whose accomplishment equal or even surpasses the nominees. Most if not all of them does not even expect to be recognized. Any information about the person or persons who are nominees of the award is very much welcome in order to provide the appropriate body accurate information about the candidates, which might have been overlooked by the validators.

Let it be then known to the world if necessary, like that of the AKLAN SPED CENTER, which now enjoys foreign grants for the construction a building to propagate the advocacy it promotes. After all, the advocacy of these people is worthy to be featured, in support of the Civil Service Commission's mission under the leadership of Chairman Ricardo L. Saludo with Senior Commissioner Cesar D. Buenaflor and Commissioner Mary Ann Z. Fernandez Mendoza for the government to move as one.

The day started with a simple early morning breakfast with the pupils of Rawis Elementary School, beneficiary of the Civil Service Commission Regional Office No. V's (CSCRO No. V) "Feeding Program Project" in celebration of the National Nutrition Month. We do not know if our friend Elsa Bayani of the National Nutrition Council is still around. Nevertheless, we hope this reaches the NCC to support this noble project of the CSC for us to move altogether, from within and without the government. Simple as it maybe, this is just a beginning of the advocacies we shall be featuring concerning Legaspi City and Bicol per se. Let us make a difference and may God give us the faith, strength and courage to move on.

Our story starts with CSCRO No. V's early morning Feeding Program on June 14, 2009. Simple as it maybe, its essence, however, is deep - for the children of Rawis Elementary School to realize that government reaches out - a government with people worthy of everybody's trust. In the book of Jeremiah 23 (1-6), our people deserves justice and equality from their leaders. The food feeding project of the government the way being implemented by CSCRO No. V, in celebration of the National Nutrition Month, in You Tube:
