Relief and Assistance

Food Relief in Tangalan, Aklan

LGUs should give attention to families who are not qualified for such benefit programs in order for them to get the same food security and safety.

To equitize support to and mitigate hunger of families affected by COVID-19 through the provision of assistance in the form of relief packs to all families who did not qualify for the SAP and 4Ps of DSWD for the duration of the Extended Enhance Community Quarantine, this is a relief assistance project initiated by the LGU to families who did not qualify for both aforementioned programs as an equity measure. The relief packs consisted of the following items: 1) 20 kg rice, 2) 2 pcs whole dressed chicken, 3) 400 grams pancit bihon, and 4) 40 tablets of vitamins which shall be distributed in every target household. This practice had mitigated hunger of Tangalanons during the period of extended Enhanced Community Quarantine.
