“‘Bato, Iloilo. Bato Barangay Ko!’ was conceptualized to highlight our city’s continuing recovery and the Ilonggos’ resilience despite the on-going global health crisis brought about by COVID-19,” Treñas posted via his official Facebook page.
‘Bato, Iloilo. Bato Barangay Ko’ campaign will hand out the following awards, with corresponding cash gifts:
