Mayor Beng Climaco facilitated on Monday afternoon at City Hall the release of cash assistance to families affected by two separate fire incidents.

Together with Evelyn Las Marias, Special Operations Officer IV of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), Climaco handed over a total of Php 53,000.00 to 15 families as part of the government’s financial support and assistance to facilitate their recovery.

Of the total number of families, 13 came from Sto. Niño and two were from Zambowood.

Depending on the severity of damaged properties and house ownership status, families with totally damaged homes received Php 5,000.00 each, while those with partially damaged homes received Php 3,000.00.

House boarders whose homes were totally damaged also received Php 1,500.00 as support.

The grant of cash assistance is legally mandated through a resolution of the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) and is part of the City’s social assistance to families in need and victims of calamities. — Jasmine Mohammadsali
