Capitol extends aid to fire victims

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, along with his sister, former Board Member Mylyn Pineda-Cayabyab, led the distribution of assistance to 13 families who recently lost their homes to fire.

The beneficiaries came from the cities of Mabalacat and San Fernando, and the municipalities of Magalang, Floridablanca, Sta. Rita, Mexico, and Sta. Ana.

Under the Emergency Shelter Assistance Program funded by the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC), each received financial assistance amounting to ₱20,000 to help them recover from the tragedy.

Susing Bacani, one of the recipients from Floridablanca, expressed his thanks to Gov. Delta and Cayabyab for their immediate assistance.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami sa ibinigay nilang tulong sa ‘min, gagamitin po namin ito pambili ng yero at semento panggawa ng bagong bahay,” said Bacani.

He disclosed that the fire, which ravaged their home, originated from the mountains.
