Sen. Bong Go’s office conducted a relief activity on Friday, 9 September for indigenous residents of Aritao and Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya.

In his video message, Go noted the challenges brought by the pandemic to many Filipino families and vowed to continue assisting the poor and marginalized across the country.

“’Yung mga mahihirap, sila po ang pinakaapektado ng sitwasyon ngayon. Gustuhin man nilang maging ligtas, hindi rin po natin sila mapipigilan na lumabas upang maghanap ng kabuhayan. Bukod sa takot sa COVID-19, takot rin silang magutom. Kung kaya’t pagdating sa serbisyo mula gobyerno, dapat talaga silang gawing prayoridad,” emphasized Go.

“Unahin natin ang mga mahihirap at pagsilbihan natin sila upang sila ay makabangon muli at maibalik sa normal ang kanilang pamumuhay. Malasakit sa kapwa at serbisyong tapat ang aming patuloy na ihahain. Gagawin ng gobyerno ang lahat ng makakaya nito para matulungan kayong malagpasan ang krisis na ito,” he reaffirmed.

The senator’s team handed out meals, masks and shirts to 509 residents at their respective municipal gymnasiums.

They also provided select residents with shoes and phablets, and gave away bicycles and balls for basketball and volleyball to others as part of Go’s efforts to encourage more Filipinos to engage in sports instead of vices.

Personnel from the Department of Social Welfare and Development also extended livelihood assistance grants.
