GMA Regional TV’s (RTV) Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels continues to reach out to more Kapuso in the regions, extending help to thousands of families in North Central Luzon; Central and Eastern Visayas; Western Visayas; and North, Central, and Southern Mindanao.

Halfway through its second leg, this civic initiative launched by GMA RTV last May is a modified version of Kapuso Barangayan. As most of the cities and provinces in the country were placed under community quarantine, Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels was conceptualized to provide Filipinos with essential items they urgently need such as breakfast items, grocery packs, as well as hygiene kits and vitamins.

From June to the first week of October, a total of 1,040 families from nine barangays in North Central Luzon were given food and grocery packs by GMA RTV North Central Luzon team.

Meanwhile, 14 barangays in Iloilo were visited by GMA RTV Western Visayas from the last week of May to the first week of October, benefiting 1,660 families.

In Cebu, 10 barangays were provided with food packs and fresh locally-produced vegetables since June, with GMA RTV Central and Eastern Visayas reaching 1,130 families.

From July to September, the GMA RTV Southern Mindanao team was able to aid 1,080 families in nine barangays in Davao.

The Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels went all the way to Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental where almost 600 families from five barangays received food items from GMA RTV North and Central Mindanao.

Each pack of “Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels” included notes with messages of encouragement from the anchors and hosts of GMA Regional TV’s newscasts and morning programs to help uplift the beneficiary family’s spirits.

“Our Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels is more than just distributing essentials and grocery packs to the Kapuso families in the regions,” says GMA Regional TV and Synergy Vice President and Head Oliver Amoroso. “This is our way of reaching out to every Kapuso, for them to feel that they are not alone in this fight against COVID-19 and that GMA Network, thru GMA Regional TV, is one with them in these trying times. We thank all our partners across the Philippines in helping us realize our mission. Rest assured that we will continue to do our best in providing our Kapuso families basic supplies so as to lessen their load. Sama-sama po tayo, mga Kapuso, sa laban natin kontra COVID-19. Makakaasa kayong #BuongPusoParaSaPilipino ang GMA Regional TV para sa inyo,” he ends.

“Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels” is set to kickstart its third wave this December with the aim of reaching more beneficiaries throughout the country.
