Guimbal, Iloilo Mayor Oscar “Oca” Garin is currently confined in a hospital.

“To my fellow Guimbalanons, our Tatay, my own Tatay, is confined in the hospital. Asking for your prayers,” Vice Mayor Jennifer Colada said in a Facebook post.

Colada, however, did not elaborate further. (

On Facebook, former 1st District Rep. Richard Garin said their father was “a strong leader, but your prayers at this moment will make him even stronger.”

“Lord, heal Tatay of his sickness, clear his lungs, touch him now in the areas of his body that need most of your healing love,” he wrote.

His father, he added, “is experiencing symptoms.”

He also appealed “for privacy, while doctors are assessing his condition.”
