Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Tuesday met with more than 90 families whose houses were destroyed in two separate fires and assisted them with their needs.

In the visits, Go said work goes on in government as the administration is committed to deliver continued service for the betterment of all Filipinos amid the high satisfaction rating of the President based on the latest SWS Survey.

Sabi nga ni Pangulo, trabaho lang siya. Sa mga na kontento po sa kanyang trabaho, maraming salamat po sa inyong suporta kay Pangulong Duterte at sa kanyang administrasyon. Sa amin po, tuloy lang ang pagtulong at ang serbisyo para sa bawat Pilipino,” he said.

(The President said he will just continue to work. To those who are content with what he's doing, thank you for your support for President Duterte and his administration. As for us, we will just cotinue helping and serving each Filipino.)

Go said the President is taking criticisms in stride. “Sa mga hindi naman po kontento at hindi satisfied sa kanyang pamamalakad, sabi ni Pangulong Duterte magtatrabaho pa po siya nang maigi para sa ating bayan,” he said.

(To those who are not content or satisfied with the way he is running the country, the President says he will still continue to work for our country.)

The senator first visited at noontime the 12 families or so who were affected by a fire incident on Saturday on the 8th to 7th Streets at the Villamor area of Barangay 183 in Pasay City.

He then checked the condition of the 80 families or so whose houses were hit by a fire on Sunday at the Alley F Telecom Compound, Quezon Boulevard, Barangay 310, Zone 31, District III, Sta. Cruz, Manila.

Go provided food packs and financial assistance to the victims at the covered court of their respective barangays.

Also with him were representatives of various government agencies such as the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the National Housing Authority (NHA) to provide immediate assistance to the victims and to assess their long-term needs.

In an interview, Go said he filed in the Senate last week a bill that seeks to improve the capabilities of the Bureau of Fire Protection and its firefighters to respond to fire incidents. The bill also seeks to increase people’s awareness on fire prevention.

Meron po akong finile na Fire Protection Modernization Bill para i-modernize ang Bureau of Fire Protection (at tulungan) ang ating mga bumbero. Magkakaroon din tayo ng education campaign para maiwasan ang mga sunog,” he said.

(I filed the Fire Protection Modernization Bill which seeks to modernize the Bureau of Fire Protection and help our firefighters. We will also have an education campaign to prevent fires.)
