The senator’s team provided assistance to a total of 18 families affected by a fire incident that occurred in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.
The group provided meals, financial assistance, food packs, vitamins, masks and face shields, while selected recipients were given new pairs of shoes and others received bicycles so they can travel with ease while transportation remains limited.
The team also gave away computer tablets to help students cope with the blended learning set-up implemented by schools.
At the same time, personnel from the Department of Social Welfare and Development handed out separate financial assistance as part of a holistic set of interventions by the national government for communities in crisis.
