The office of Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go recently provided assistance to struggling families in Dasmariñas City, Cavite as the senator also encouraged the public to remain supportive of the government’s pandemic efforts by participating in the national vaccination drive.

Go’s team distributed snacks and masks to 1,000 Caviteños at the Dasmariñas Arena. They also gave away cellular phones, bicycles and shoes to select individuals.

Meanwhile, a team from the Department of Social Welfare and Development separately distributed financial aid.

The senator then offered additional assistance to those with underlying medical issues and advised them to visit Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital in Bacoor City and General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital in Trece Martires City where there are Malasakit Centers ready to assist them with their medical expenses.

The Malasakit Centers program was institutionalized under Republic Act 11463 which Go principally authored and sponsored in the Senate to help particularly poor and indigent patients with their hospital bills and other health-related concerns. There are 151 operational Malasakit Centers nationwide so far.

Go likewise supported the road improvements in the cities of Cavite, Dasmariñas, General Trias, Imus and Tagaytay; rehabilitation of covered courts in various barangays in General Trias City;

rehabilitation and improvement of the municipal fire station in Noveleta; acquisition of ambulance units for Indang and Trece Martires City; and improvement of a sports facility in Cavite State University in Indang.
