The city government of Pasig worked double time to assist residents who were affected by the reimposition of the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila last August.

In a Sept. 8 Facebook post, Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto announced that the local government finished distributing financial assistance worth P681 million to a total of 217,000 families on August 27.

He said 260,000 food packs were also distributed to needy families using the local government’s funds.

“Malaking tulong mula sa nasyonal na pamahalaan. Ngunit sa dami ng nangangailangan, hindi talaga kayang bigyan lahat ng cash,” Sotto explained.

“Dire-diretso ang ayuda team.. pinupuntahan natin ang mga lugar na hindi nakatanggap ng cash,” he added.

Sotto thanked the “ayuda team” for their hard work despite the challenges caused by the pandemic.

“Maraming salamat sa buong team, alam kong pagod na rin kayo pero di tayo sumusuko!” he said.
