SENATOR-ELECT Bong Go addresses fire victims in Barangay Paltok, Quezon City.

Following the fire that hit Barangay Paltok, Quezon City last June 4, Senator-elect Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go personally provided assistance to the 150 families affected by the tragedy.

Among others, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Health, Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp., Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, Department of Trade and Industry, and private entities also provided relief assistance to the victims.

“Pinakiusapan ko po ang DSWD, DoH na tumulong sa inyo. Ako naman may mga kaibigan po ako sa pribado, iba po ‘yung dala nilang tulong na pinansyal at saka grocery packs. Pinakiusapan ko rin po ‘yung Pagcor at PCSO na tumulong. Papakiusapan ko rin po ang DTI para sa mga gustong maka-avail ng livelihood,” he stated.

The National Housing Authority was also present to deliver housing assistance to the victims. “At ang pinakaimportante sa lahat, ‘yung NHA. Isa po to sa aking priority, itong murang pabahay. So, pupunta po rito ang NHA para mag-interview po sa inyo kung sino po ang pwedeng maka-avail ng murang pabahay para sa inyo,” he added.

Go also proposed aid to those who want to go back to their provinces. He committed to provide school supplies and uniforms for students affected so they can go back to school.

He also offered health assistance to those who are in need of medical attention through the Malasakit Center. “Meron po tayong Malasakit Center. Sa mga senior citizens, ‘yung mga gustong magpagamot kami na po ang bahala. Tutulungan po namin kayo,” he said.
