Senator Christopher “Bong” Go extended assistance to affected individuals from Tarragona, Davao Oriental on Tuesday, April 6. The beneficiaries were left homeless after fires hit their houses during three separate incidents occurring on April 13, June 18, and August 1 of last year.

During the distribution activity held at the Tarragona Municipal Hall, Go’s personnel provided meals, masks, face shields, and vitamins to the beneficiaries. The activity was conducted in batches while strictly complying with the necessary health protocols.

“Magandang araw po sa inyong lahat, mga kababayan ko. Kumusta po kayo? Sana ay nasa mabuti po kayong kalagayan. Nariyan po ang aking mga staff na patuloy pong umiikot upang makapagbigay nang kaunting tulong po sa inyo,” Go told the victims in a video call.

The Senator also offered to help beneficiaries with their medical concerns. He reminded beneficiaries that they may avail of government medical assistance from the nearest Malasakit Center located at Davao Oriental Provincial Medical Center in Mati City.

“Kung kailangan niyo po ng tulong medikal, mayroon po tayong Malasakit Center sa inyong lugar at handang tumulong ito. One-stop shop po ito. Nariyan na po ang Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, Department of Health, at Department of Social Welfare and Development na handang tumulong po sa inyo, sa inyong hospital bills,” Go explained.

Meanwhile, representatives from the National Housing Authority provided housing assistance to the beneficiaries under its Emergency Housing Assistance Program.

“Nariyan po ang NHA kung saan magbibigay po sila ng EHAP. Ito po ay programa ng national government na makapagbibigay po nang kaunting tulong sa inyo pambili ng housing materials,” Go said.

Go also thanked and commended the local officials of Tarragona, led by Mayor Nestor Uy, for taking good care of their constituents during the pandemic.

He, then, went on to encourage beneficiaries to stay strong as the country continues to face the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

“Magtulungan lang po tayo. Sino ba naman ang magtutulungan kundi tayo lang po kapwa natin Pilipino,” he said.

“Basta kami ni Pangulong Duterte, patuloy kaming magseserbisyo sa inyo dahil para sa amin, ang serbisyo sa tao ay serbisyo po 'yan sa Diyos,” he ended.
