THE Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Friday brought its Bayanihan sa Barangay program to Barangay Tañong in Malabon City.

MMDA personnel spearheaded the conduct of flushing, cleaning, and misting of the Malabon Central Market, in addition to declogging of drainage and repair of drainage, trimming and pruning of trees, sidewalk clearing, painting of yellow box and posting of traffic signage.

They also held seminars on solid waste management, anti-smoking, vaping, anti-littering, disaster preparedness, and traffic management for the residents of the barangay.

In his remarks, MMDA acting chairman Romando Artes said the Bayanihan sa Barangay project is the agency’s way to make its services more accessible and closer to the people of the metropolis.

He underscored the importance of clean-up drives for smoother and undisrupted water flow towards pumping stations to reduce urban flooding.

Aside from the cleaning and clearing operations, the MMDA also brought its mobile material recovery facility (MMRF) where residents can exchange their collected recyclables for grocery items.

The agency also installed a one-stop shop inquiry desk where resident motorists can check their traffic-related violations.

Malabon Mayor Jeannie Sandoval, for her part, said the project will show commitment in creating a “safer, cleaner, and more organized community.”

“Through this initiative, we are showing the true spirit of bayanihan. In our unity and collaboration, we are strengthening our community. Together, we will make our city more beautiful and orderly,” she said.

Malabon Rep. Jaye Lacson-Noel thanked the MMDA for its efforts and assistance in making the city more resilient to floods than the previous years.

Artes bared other projects in line for Malabon and other Metro Manila local government units, such as development of parks, and trucks for Kalinisan at Kaayusan program where the community will be involved in proper waste management.
