Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go recently visited Quezon City to provide relief to families whose houses were damaged by a recent fire incident in Barangay UP Campus last 2 May.

The senator expressed his concern to the victims and reaffirmed to them that they would be able to recover immediately as he reassured that the government is always ready to help and vowed that he will remain steadfast in pushing for better and strengthened fire prevention efforts.

Go and his team provided relief items, such as grocery packs, shirts, meals, and vitamins to a total of 106 families or 459 family members at the Suntay Hall in Barangay UP Campus. They also provided bicycles, cellphones, shoes, basketballs, volleyballs, shirts, and a ‘Nasunugan box’ with essential items to select individuals.

Meanwhile, the Department of Social Welfare and Development granted financial assistance to each affected household. The National Housing Authority further assessed the needs of the affected families and committed to provide further housing assistance.

The Department of Health distributed medicines and additional vitamins while the Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources and Philippine Fisheries Development Authority provided supplies and food items.
