Rep. Duterte’s office distributes 1, 200 food packs to fisherfolks

DAVAO CITY – About 1,200 fisherfolks received food packs from the Office of the First District on September 10, Thursday afternoon, at the seaside of Purok 8, Barangay 76-A Bucana of this city.

Representative Paolo Duterte’s office distributed the food packs containing three kilos of rice, six canned goods and three noodles to fisherfolks who were also affected by the global crisis.

Since the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) began to spread across the globe, several Filipinos were having difficulty in coping with the challenges and changes, among them are the fisherfolks.

Duterte’s office said that the beneficiaries were residents of the first district and are members of the fisherfolks associations in the above-mentioned barangay.

The fisherfolks associations are namely: Aroma, Riverside, Purok Pasil, Purok 22A, Badjao, Kisada, Seaside, Dapsa 1 and Dapsa 2, Muslim-Christian, Bucana sa Kalambuan, and Bolton Riverside.

Rep. Duterte's office earlier mentioned that the distribution of food packs focused on the “poorest of the poor” from all 54 barangays in the first district. 

The district office has been giving food packs to those in need, especially its constituents, since the quarantine. Even other local governments in Davao also received assistance from Duterte’s office.
