While typhoon “Jolina” interrupted other operations, the distribution of cash aid and vaccinations in Pasay City continued yesterday.
Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said heavy rains did not prevent the city from proceeding with the distribution of cash aid to beneficiaries as it was already scheduled.
However, those who could not proceed to vaccination and distribution centers because of flooding and other reasons need not worry because they can still come back tomorrow or Friday.
Metro Manila is currently under Signal No.2 which also means automatic suspension of classes for pre-school to elementary and high school, both in private and public schools.
Despite the heavy rains city government personnel are ready and willing to proceed with the delivery of services to the residents.
“If they cannot come due to flooding or they are afraid they could get sick they have no reason to worry because they can always come back either Thursday or Friday,” said the mayor.
Pasay City Hall Departments such as Pasay Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and Social Welfare and Development Division were instructed to prepare an evacuation center for residents who will need to be rescued from their areas in case the water in Maricaban river would overflow.
