CITY OF MALOLOS – Some 743 families affected by the localized lockdown in Barangay Perez in Bulakan, Bulacan received food packs from the provincial government through the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) on Thursday, October 1.
According to Rowena Joson-Tiongson, head of PSWDO, each household received a food pack containing 5 kilos of rice and 10 packs of noodles as assistance to the affected families.
Governor Daniel Fernando said that the PGB is continuously providing food packs to Bulakenyos especially to those families who are on lockdown.
“Ang Pamahalaang Panlalawigan po ay patuloy na sumusuporta sa mga apektadong lugar lalo na po sa mga area na kasalukuyang naka-lockdown. Tuluy-tuloy po ang pamamahagi natin ng food packs at pinagsusumikapan po namin na maibigay at matustusan ang inyong pangangailangan sa kabila ng kinakaharap nating pandemya,” the governor said.
