Rep. Paolo Duterte gives aid to Davao fire victims

DAVAO CITY – Over 100 families affected by a fire in two separate incidents here received Tuesday, April 9, relief and cash assistance from First Congressional District Representative Paolo Duterte.


Rep. Duterte’s son, Rodrigo “Rigo” Duterte II, led the distribution of assistance to affected families at Purok 25 and 26 Muslim Village and Purok 4 Seawall Bucana, all within Barangay 76-A’s watch.


The lawmaker’s team distributed relief packs, containers, bottled water, and cash through the PPP program to 50 house owners, 23 sharers, 17 renters, 44 boarders, and two caretakers.


They immediately served 500 hot porridges (lugaw) and will provide packed lunch for the next five days, which started on Tuesday until Sunday, April 14.


Rigo, grateful for the people’s unwavering support of his father and the Duterte family, affirmed their commitment to delivering prompt assistance to families affected by unfortunate events.


Barangay 76-A leader Robert Olan-olan expressed his profound gratitude for the support provided to the fire victims currently recuperating from the incident.


The Bureau of Fire Protection in Davao (BFP–Davao) reported two distinct fire incidents on Sunday afternoon, April 7. The first incident started at Purok 26, and the second incident was at Purok 4.


Authorities noted around 474 individuals were affected by these incidents. The local government temporarily sheltered the fire victims at a nearby covered court of the affected areas.


The Davao City Social Welfare and Development Office (DCSWDO) estimated the damage costs at P1.78 million and P2.53 million, respectively.


Chief Inspector Paul Jorge Barozzo, spokesperson for the BFP-Davao, earlier cautioned the public to practice fire safety and conduct maintenance of electrical connections by professionals.


BFP-Davao logged 48 fire incidents in Davao City from January to February this year, most of which involved residential areas.
