Bong Go provides aid to indigents in Iba, Zambales
In line with his continuing efforts to support various sectors nationwide, Sen. Bong Go and his team spearheaded a three-day relief operation in Iba, Zambales to deliver assistance to struggling residents in the said town from 14 to 16 November.
Mounted at the People’s Park, the series of activities was kick-started by Go’s team on the first day where they provided aid to 1,000 struggling residents.
The senator, together with Senator Robinhood Padilla, then took time to personally visit and lead the distribution effort on the second day, November 15, where another set of a thousand residents was given assistance.
The beneficiaries received meals, grocery packs, vitamins, shirts, and masks while select individuals were given shoes, cellular phones, bicycles, and balls for volleyball and basketball.
Representatives from the Department of Social Welfare and Development, in turn, extended financial aid through its Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation program to further help them recover from the challenges brought by the pandemic.
“Sabi ni Governor (Jun Ebdane) kanina, malaking tulong po itong matatanggap ninyo sa inyo ngayong araw na ito. Dalahin n’yo po sa inyong mga pamilya dahil nasa gitna pa tayo ng krisis. Importante po pagkain, baon sa inyong mga anak. Dalahin n’yo po sa inyong mga pamilya ang inyong matatanggap ngayong araw na ito,” reminded Go, who is an adopted son of Iba, during his speech.
