Go assures assistance despite strict health protocols

Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go has continued to lend help to those in need of assistance while strictly observing proper health and safety protocols amid the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go (OFFICE OF SEN. BONG GO / MANILA BULLETIN) Go, through his office, distributed aid today to 26 families who were affected by the fire incident that ravaged properties and had one casualty in Astek Block 3 in San Joaquin, Pasig City. The chairman of the Senate health and demography committee said his staff provided immediate relief, such as food and financial assistance. The team also distributed face masks and medicines and gave away bicycles, specifically to fire victims.Go has earlier expressed his support for using bicycles as an alternative mode of transportation, especially at a time when public transportation is limited in many places in the country and at the same time promote a healthy lifestyle. “And, in fact, doon po sa mga nasunugan, tinatanong ko sila, hirap po sila… they’re having a hard time po sa transportation in going to their respective na trabaho po nila, so sabi ko, I encourage them to use bicycles. Minsan po namimigay po ako ng bisikleta sa kanila,’’he said.  (I asked the fire victims, [and they said] they’re having a hard time in going to their respective works. I encourage them to use bicycles. I provided  them with bicycles.) Government agencies also provided aid to the fire victims, particularly the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Local government officials were also present in each visit. “Walang tinitingnang oras o panahon ang pagtulong sa kapwa, lalong lalo na sa panahon ng pandemyang ito. Lagi kong sinasabi noon na kahit maging Senador man ako, kahit anong oras at pagkakataon, kapag kailangan ako ng aking mga kababayan, tutulong agad ako,’’Go said.  (We don’t look at time when it comes to helping our fellowmen, especially now during this pandemic. I have always said before that even if I become a senator. Anytime, if I am needed by my countrymen  I will help them.) Go had urged the national government to also provide proper face masks for the poor and to those who cannot afford. He also urged the government to enforce a stronger face mask-wearing policy in the country. Go also stressed that government must prioritize buying locally-made masks to save jobs, and provide it to those who cannot afford to buy their own masks to help save lives.
