The staff of the Office of Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and the City Treasurer’s Office distributed the financial assistance to the representatives of the families whose homes were destroyed by a fire in Purok Lunoy Barangay Junob last week.
In compliance to the instruction of Mayor Remollo, the recipients, who were determined by the City Social Welfare and Development Office, were fetched yesterday by the City bus and waited for their turns to receive the cash assistance of P 10, 000 for each affected family.
The City Government and the barangays officials of Junob will negotiate with the owners of the lot where the homes once stood to be purchased so that their new homes can be built with the help of the National Housing Authority.
For now, the City Government and private donors have been providing relief goods, basic necessities and other forms assistance to the fire victims as they try to recover and rebuild their lives.
