In line with the Civil Service Commission’s (CSC) 117th Anniversary with this year’s theme “Tugon sa Hamon ng Pagbabago:Malasakit ng Lingkod Bayani”, a bloodletting activity was conducted at the multi-purpose hall of the Metropolitan Naga Water District (MNWD) last September 6, 2017. The activity was in partnership with the Bicol Medical Center.
A mass was celebrated to start the anniversary activities, with Rev. Fr. Emil Valeza, Parochial Vicar of Immaculate Conception Parish as celebrant.
Right after, the Acting General Manager Virginia I. Nero welcomed the participants as well as the CSC officials for holding such an event at the MNWD. Then, Director Jocelyn L. Marifosque, Director II, CSC FO reiterated the objectives of this year’s theme, to manifest “malasakit” in public service.
MNWD Board Chairman Jorge T. Palma’s message echoed the CSC’s theme for this year by highlighting three essential factors in effective public service: Support – without the effort of each individual, they cannot realize the goal as a team; “Pagbabago” (Change) -we should open ourselves to change especially if it means, walking the extra mile for the public, and; “Malasakit” (Care) – we cannot serve the public without caring.
MNWD Director Monina Lily Claveria also shared a simple message to the gathering and that is the importance of listening. She said that if we will not listen to the needs of our customers we will not be able to serve them. “Even if you love, you care or you support, you were not serving them fully if you do not listen” she said.
Employees from different government agencies, including those from the MNWD, for a total of 62 individuals, donated blood for this worthy cause.
