In line with its continuous social services program, the city government yesterday facilitated the distribution of cash assistance to victims of fire incidents that occurred the past months.

Validated by the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), 10 families from Campo Islam and Limpapa whose homes and properties were damaged in separate fire incidents last January received a total of P37,000.

Mayor Beng Climaco, together with CSWDO Special Operations Officer Evelyn Las Marias, led the simple distribution ceremonies at City Hall.

Families whose homes were totally damaged received P5,000.00 while families with partially damaged homes received P3,000.00. On the other hand, house sharers/renters with partially damaged homes received P1,000.00

The assistance is part of the social support provided by the City Government to residents and families in distress following calamities and disasters. —Jasmine Mohammadsali
