Sen. Go provides aid to GenSan fire victims


Senator Christopher “Bong” Go has extended assistance to around 100 families affected by a fire incident in General Santos City on July 23.

The neophyte senator urged those who are in need of medical assistance to utilize the Malasakit Center in their province, saying that the national government has earmarked fund to assist poor patients.

“Kung sino gustong magpagamot lapitan niyo lang ‘yung ospital, lapitan niyo lang kung saan may Malasakit Center sa lugar ninyo. Pera niyo ‘yan, inyo ‘yan,” he said during his visit to Gensan.

Go said his office also coordinated with the other government agencies to provide additional relief assistance to the fire victims.

During his visit, he provided grocery packs, food packs, and school uniforms as well as school supplies for the students affected by the incident so that they could go back to school as soon as possible.
