(The Philippine Star) - October 30, 2020 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The office of Sen. Bong Go has distributed packed meals, food packs, face masks and face shields to 374 vendors at the Pandi public market in Bulacan.

Go’s team also handed out bicycles to selected recipients to help them in their daily commute to work as well as tablets to help their children adapt to blended learning.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development gave financial assistance and additional food packs. Representatives from the Department of Trade and Industry assessed those eligible for their livelihood assistance.

“Sa mga kababayan ko diyan, alam kong hirap na hirap po ang ating mga public market vendors sa inyong negosyo at kadalasan din po dyan ang hawaan ng sakit sa pinagtatrabahuhan ninyo. Kaya naman po napili namin na abutan kayo ng tulong para maprotektahan ang inyong sarili at matulungang makaahon muli ang inyong kabuhayan,” he said.

Go vowed to continue to reach out and extend assistance to Filipinos in crisis situations.

“Bisyo ko po ang magserbisyo sa inyo. Tuloy dapat ang serbisyo lalo na sa panahong hirap na hirap na ang mga kapwa nating Pilipino. Gagawin po natin ang lahat sa abot ng ating makakaya para magbigay ng tulong at mag-iwan ng ngiti sa oras ng inyong pagdadalamhati,” he said.
