Bong Go sends aid to struggling residents in Hilongos, Leyte

Sen. Bong Go sent his team to Hilongos, Leyte on Monday, 10 October, to provide assistance to its struggling residents.

In his video message, Go reiterated the need for stronger government efforts to hasten economic recovery. He then expressed confidence in the corresponding initiatives of the Marcos Administration.

“Alam ko pong napakahirap ng panahon ngayon pero asahan niyo po na ang gobyerno, sa ilalim po ng pamumuno ni Pangulong (Ferdinand) Marcos Jr., ay gagawin ang lahat upang makaahon muli ang ating bansa mula sa pandemya. Basta magtiwala lang po kayo sa gobyerno,” Go said.

Recognizing their first 100 days in office, Go then commended President Marcos Jr. and Vice President Sara Duterte for garnering high approval and trust ratings in the PUBLiCUS Asia’s PAHAYAG third quarter survey. Marcos Jr. got 62% approval and 58% trust ratings while VP Duterte received 66% and 62% approval and trust ratings, respectively.

“Ako naman po ay very satisfied naman po ako sa 100 days. Suportahan po natin, importante po suporta ng taumbayan. Kung ano po ang makakatulong para sa ating bayan, tulungan po natin si Pangulong Marcos. As a senator, very satisfied naman ako sa first 100 days ng ating Pangulong Bongbong Marcos,” enthused Go in an interview after the relief activity he personally led on the same day in San Juan City.

Held at the Hilongos municipal gymnasium, Go’s team provided masks and snacks to 134 indigents. One of the beneficiaries also received a bicycle.

Meanwhile, as part of the government’s interventions to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic, the Department of Social Welfare and Development extended financial assistance.

The Department of Trade and Industry and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority also conducted on-site assessments and provided livelihood support and scholarship grants, respectively, to those qualified.
