FLYING low Saturday, the Makahambus Eagles Club (MEC), a chapter of the Fraternal Order of Eagles (Philippine Eagle), drops provisions for the law enforcers assigned in the AFP-PNP checkpoints in Cagayan De Oro City as a token of appreciation for the law enforcers’ effort to secure the city 800,000 residents from lawless elements.
Robert Dy, EY 2017 President of MEC, said that the distribution of 12 bags of rice (25 kgs), coffee, stoves, water and dress chicken, was not really that big for the men in uniform
who braved the sun and the rain 24/7 to serve as watchmen of about 800,000 people in Cagayan De Oro City.
“The MEC certainly appreciate the efforts of our law enforcers and the little provision that we shared with them was a show of gratitude for their efforts and sincerity to serve the people of Cagayan De Oro,” Dy said in a statement.
He said that each checkpoint received four bags of rice, four containers filled with purified water, a cartoon of three-in-one coffee sachet, a complete set of mini-stove, and four dressed chickens.
Dy also thanked the Pryce Gases, Sterling and the San Miguel Corp. for extending the donation that leads to the MEC’s successful activity.
The police officers manning the checkpoints were also thankful for the assistance, saying that the gesture shown by the MEC has enlivened the morale of the men in uniform.
“We are happy for the trust shown by the people of Cagayan De Oro, particularly the Makahambus Eagles Club, to the men in uniform,” Inspector Rutherford Ondin, of the Lumbia checkpoint, said in an interview.
Inspector Johnny Agutaya, of the police checkpoint in Gusa , said that the assistance extended by the MEC has given us more resolve to secure the city from lawless elements.
“The concern shown by the civilians to us [police and the military] provides us reason to work hard to ensure that safety and security of the people in Cagayan De Oro,” Agutaya said.
