MANILA, Philippines — While exerting efforts to address the public health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Sen. Bong Go  continues to reach out and extend much needed relief to Filipinos in crisis situations.

Last Thursday, Go visited Batangas province to provide aid to 2,973 families affected by Super Typhoon Rolly in Lobo town and Batangas City. In both events, Go and his team made sure that necessary health and safety protocols were strictly observed to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

“Patuloy po akong umiikot para makapagbigay ng konting tulong at mag-iwan ng ngiti sa oras ng inyong pagdadalamhati. Nais po naming iparamdam sa inyo na nandito ang inyong gobyerno na nagmamalasakit sa bawat Pilipino at handang maglingkod sa inyong lahat,” he said.

Go led the distribution of packed meals, food packs, face masks, face shields and vitamins to 1,199 families from three barangays at the Batangas City Coliseum.

Similar assistance was given to 1,774 families from 17 barangays at the Lobo municipal gymnasium.

Select beneficiaries were given tablets to help their children participate in blended learning being implemented in schools.

Go committed to send more tablets for students who lost their laptops and learning devices because of the typhoon.

Some beneficiaries were provided bicycles that they could use to commute to work.

Go gave assurance that he would relay the concerns of typhoon victims to national agencies to expedite government efforts and restore normalcy in  their areas.
