‘Di nakalimot! Along Malapitan meets man he helped with medical bills


Caloocan Rep. Along Malapitan got a pleasant surprise during his visit to Barangay 23 when he met a man he helped a year ago.

In a Facebook post, Malapitan said the man thanked him for writing a guarantee letter in December 2020 to help him pay the bills for his kidney ailment.

“Masaya po ako na makitang nasa mabuting kalagayan na si tatay Benjamin bagama’t noong huli naming pag-uusap ay nangangailangan pa siya ng dialysis,” the lawmaker said.

Malapitan said he’s grateful that he’s able to help needy residents through his office.

The lawmaker, who’s rumored to run for Caloocan mayor in 2022, has been making the rounds of various barangays to meet residents and distribute aid in cash and kind.
