Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon extended financial assistance to families who lost their homes in a fire at the Aquino-Damaso Compound in Barangay Cupang so they can start anew.

The distribution of cash aid took place during Biazon’s visit on May 1 to the evacuation area where the residents were staying. The affected families—equivalent to over 1,000 individuals—also received food packs.

“Sa aking pakikipag usap sa kapitan ng Barangay Cupang na si Kap Rainier Bulos, ang mas nangingibabaw na ngayon na tulong ay ang pinansyal para makabangon ang mga pamilyang nawala ang lahat. Kaya naman sa aming pagbabalik, bukod sa family relief packs, kami din ay magbibigay ng tulong pinansyal lalo na’t may mga kaibigan at kamag-anak kami na tutulong din,” the lawmaker said in a Facebook post.

Biazon also mediated in the discussion between the property owner and barangay officials on how to move forward following the fire. He said an agreement was reached between the two sides.

“Wala pa naman resolusyon pero nagkaron ng pagkakaunawaan na idaan sa mahinahong pag-uusap at proseso. Babalik kami uli sa darating linggo para ihatid ang family relief packs at assistance,” he said.
