MANILA — Slowly but surely the presence of #OmarCares team of Cong. Omar Albano Fajardo is being felt throughout the new Second District of Rizal where the former party-list representative is a congressional aspirant.
“Salamat po @Cong Omar Albano Fajardo nakadating na po ang wheelchair na bigay mo po sa Brgy. Balibago, Cardona, Rizal. Si pastor Ombrog po ang leader natin doon daghan salamat po muli @Cong Omar Albano Fajardo mabuhay po!” said the son a senior wheelchair recipient on his social media post.
The wheelchair donation is but a part of a broad pro-people Oplan Helping Hand project launched recently by #OmarCares in which Cong. Omar Fajardo’s wife in Department of Trade and Industry Assistant Secretary Ameenah Fajardo also has an important role despite her busy schedule.
As it truly cares about the plight of the community, aside from the wheelchair donation, #OmarCares is also in contact with the transport sector especially tricycle and jeepney drivers, the womenfolk, the youth, and civic organizations among others.
#OmarCares also recently distributed school supplies to hundreds of distant learners in remote barangays of the new second district formed only last March 25, 2021, through Republic Act 11533.
The new second district of Rizal is made up of towns of Tanay, Pililla, Jala-Jala, Morong, Baras, Teresa and Cardona.
“We’ve only just begun. Sana mapagbigyan pa tayo ng pagkakataon na mapalawak pa natin ang tulong natin sa mga taga-bagong distrito ng Rizal,” said Fajardo, who hails from Tanay town that has the biggest number of population in the new D2.
