nadadagdagan ang mga lugar na nalilinis kapag marami tayong katulong,”
Guadalupe Viejo Barangay Chairman Dennis Almario said.
“Unang-una ay panahon ng tag-ulan na
kung saan mayroon tayong mga kaso ng dengue. Nagpapasalamat kami sa DMCI Homes
na aming kaakbay sa aming paniniwala na ang malinis na kapaligiran ay malayo sa
karamdaman,” he added.
Almario also thanked the leading
developer of resort-inspired condominium communities for donating a floater,
