“Gusto kong pasalamatan ang mga health workers at volunteers sa inyong vaccination sites. Maraming salamat sa sakripisyo nyo sa panahong ito. Kailangan namin ni Pangulong Duterte ang tulong ng bawat Pilipino para malampasan natin ang krisis na ito,” Go said in a video message.

The senator’s team provided meals, vitamins, face masks and face shields to 2,352 beneficiaries at the Mayor’s Action Center and Facoma Covered Court Sitio 3.
