DBFC Aspirants as VOLUNTEERS for C-CIMPEL
by: Aspirant Mark Angelo Galaura
May 9, 2022, Lawaan, Talisay City. Under favorable sunny weather, the DBFC Aspirants were tasked to volunteer as an information guide and poll watchers for the 2022 National Elections under the C-CIMPEL (Cebu-Citizens Involvement and Maturation for Peoples Empowerment and Liberation). The San Roque Lipata Parish requested Fr. Vince Michael Sabal, SDB, for the Aspirants to become an extension of the voluntary functions of the election.
The aspirants were divided into two groups of twelve for two shifts and the location was initially located on the facade of San Roque Lipata Parish but then transferred to a better site under the gymnasium of Lipata Central Elementary School, where it was more accessible to the public. Their primary duty was to assist voters find their cluster, precinct and voting numbers. It was also an opportune occasion for them to experience first hand how government election runs.
Overall, it was a day not only of service but also of learning and appreciation of the God-given freedom that each Filipino possesses.
