LUBAO, Pampanga – Some 581 scavengers from the province’s 2nd District received financial, medical, and food assistance from the provincial government at the Lubao Municipal Gym on Wednesday. 

“Buri ku, bayu ku mag 85, panamdaman yu kung makananu kaming magserbisyung Governor Dennis (Before I turn 85, Governor Dennis and I would like the Kapampangans to feel the real essence of governance),” Vice Governor Lilia Nanay Pineda said.

According to VG Nanay, Governor Delta ordered financial, food and medical assistance to vulnerable sectors such as the scavengers, dialysis patients and marginalized farmers.

“Papatipun na kayung Governor Dennis kasi inyang migkaCOVID-19, marakal Kapampangan deng tinuknang magtake kareng maintenance meds da kasi ala lang panyali,” she explained.
