2K pandemic-stricken Candaba residents get P3K windfall
Some 2,000 residents of Candaba town in Pampanga province received on Monday a P3,000 cash aid from the Office of Senator Bong Go who coursed the assistance through Patrol party-list Rep. Jorge Bustos.
According to a Sun Star Pampanga report, the residents were given the cash aid on Monday to help them recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“To provide relief, support, and assistance to families whose livelihoods were affected by Covid-19, the national government, in coordination with Department of Social Welfare and Development,” Bustos was quoted as saying.
He encouraged the beneficiaries to use the money to search for new sources of livelihood.
Candaba Mayor Rene Maglanque thanked Bustos, Go and President Rodrigo Duterte for extending assistance to his constituents.
“Pandemic hit hard on every one of us so any kind of assistance, especially like this, is very much helpful and appreciated,” he was quoted as saying.
