Strong downpour could not stop the celebratory atmosphere in Barangay Hinapoyan, Carmen, Surigao del Sur during the Blessing and Turnover Ceremony of the Triple Barrel Box Culvert community sub-project completed through the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS).

Mayor Jane V. Plaza (right with white umbrella) and Vice Mayor Teofila G. Cabatuan (left) could not contain their joy while unveiling the sub-project’s marker. The community sub-project comes in handy as it will address the flooding issues in the barangay, especially this rainy season.
