PASAY CITY — Bong Go calls for greater COVID-19 vigilance as he sends relief to hundreds of indigent Caviteños whose lives and livelihoods were adversely affected by the health crisis

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go reminded residents to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 during an activity, organized in partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development, for the vulnerable and at-risk residents of Tanza town, Cavite on Wednesday, June 30.

“Pakiusap namin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa inyo, kailangan namin ang kooperasyon at disiplina ng bawat Pilipino. Sundin natin ang mga patakaran ng gobyerno at kung hindi kailangan, ‘wag kayong umalis ng inyong pamamahay. Huwag tayo maging kumpiyansa dahil delikado pa ang panahon,” Go said in a video call.

“Kung mahal niyo ang mga pamilya niyo, magpabakuna na rin kayo. Kailangan natin makamtan ang herd immunity ngayong taong para makabalik na tayo sa normal nating pamumuhay at sumigla muli ang ating ekonomiya,” he added.

Go’s team distributed meals, vitamins, masks and face shields to a total of 640 indigent residents at the Barangay Paradahan II Gym. The activity was carried out in small batches to ensure strict adherence to the government’s health and safety protocols against COVID-19.

Moreover, selected beneficiaries were provided new pairs of shoes while some were given bicycles for their commuting needs. Others received computer tablets to help their children with their blended learning activities.

In addition, personnel from the DSWD provided financial assistance in a separate distribution as part of an ongoing effort by the government to alleviate the economic impacts of the pandemic on vulnerable sectors.

“Dati ho akong nagtatrabaho sa pabrika na gumagawa ng foam. Nahinto ako dahil nagkasakit ang misis ko at pina-voluntary resignation ako ng kumpanya. Wala akong nakamit na pera. Kaya ito, nagtatrabaho na ako sa construction kahit sa edad kong ito para matulungan ang pamilya ko,” said Ernesto Erediano, 68, a resident of Brgy. Bagtas Pabahay.

“Maraming, maraming salamat sa ating Pangulo at kay Senador Bong Go para sa ibinigay nilang tulong sa akin. Malaking bagay ito lalo na ang bike na magagamit ko para sa paghanap ng bagong trabaho,” he continued.

The Senator further offered his assistance to beneficiaries in need of medical care. He informed them that they may conveniently avail of further assistance from the Malasakit Center at the General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital in Trece Martires City. The Malasakit Center is one of 124 such centers established nationwide.

It serves as a one-stop shop for the medical assistance programs offered by the national government, specifically the DSWD, Department of Health, Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office. The assistance received covers laboratories, medicines, surgeries and other patient services and expenses.

The Senator, in his message, expressed gratitude to various officials for their efforts to ensure the general well-being of their constituents, namely 7th District Representative Jesus Remulla, Governor Juanito Remulla Jr., Vice Governor Ramon Revilla III, Board Member Crispin Remulla and Board Member Angelito Langit.

He also thanked Mayor Yuri Pacumio; Vice Mayor Raymundo Del Rosario; and Councilors Sandy Go, Maricel Morales, Niño Matro, Alexis Dones, Rossano Torres, Sheryl Gervacio, Victor Murillo, and Emilio Torres.

In 2019, Go was declared an adopted son of the CALABARZON region in a manifesto issued by the governors of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon. They cited his many years of service under President Rodrigo Duterte and “heart for his country” through the various projects he initiated which have benefited millions of Filipinos.

It is in line with his commitment to its people that Go has supported the funding of various infrastructure projects in the region. Among these projects include the improvement of the Santa Rosa – Ulat – Tagaytay Road; widening of the Noveleta – Naic – Tagaytay Road; and construction of the Cavite State University – College of Arts and Trade’s sports facility.
