On June 26 (Friday) during the turnover ceremony of food donations from the members of the 18th Congress to the three barangays in District 6 of Quezon City (Culiat, Sangandaan, Apolonio Samson) severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, House Speaker Alan Peter “Compañero” S. Cayetano urged everyone to keep helping those who lost not only their lives, but also their livelihoods. “What we want to do is to encourage others to keep helping. Many of our kababayans need help, so ‘wag po tayo magkakaroon ng donor’s fatigue, ‘wag po tayong magsasawa – anything, pwede nating maitulong,” he said.
“We just want the barangays to know, especially in the areas heavily affected pa rin, tell us what you need, we will do our best,” he added.
Cayetano was joined by Representatives Allan Reyes (3rd District, Quezon City), Kit Belmonte (6th District, Quezon City) and Bong Suntay (4th District, Quezon City). Liga ng mga Barangay President Emmanuel Pilar, Barangay Captains Vic Bernardo (Culiat), Marivic Hefti (Sangandaan), and Eugene Magsalin (Apolonio Samson), and other officials from Barangays Culiat, Sangandaan, and Apolonio Samson, Quezon City received the donations on behalf of the beneficiaries.
