Beneficiaries of MGB-8 COVID-19 relief assistance extend gratitude

The beneficiaries of the relief assistance extended by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau RO VIII were grateful that they were specially chosen as Covid-19 assistance recipients by the agency.

The said beneficiaries being pedicab and motorcycle drivers and daily wage workers acknowledged that the food packs provided by MGB-08 were of great help to them and their families considering that their income is not stable during this pandemic due to Covid-19.

The washable facemasks included in the food packs were also considered equally important by the beneficiaries since they are exposed to the outside environment.

About 250 recipients of food packs containing a various mix of vegetables which included squash, eggplant, string beans, cucumber as well as sweet corn, camote and dried fish, within the different barangays of Palo, Leyte, benefited from the said relief assistance which were given on April 24, 2020.
