Zamboanga fire victims get relief aid from City

THE Zamboanga City Government released on April 6 food packs to families displaced by the fire that hit a community in an east coast village of the city.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar and City Social Welfare Officer Socorro Rojas led the distribution of the food packs to families displaced by the fire that hit Sitio Cambodia, Barangay Tetuan on March 31.

Rojas said the distribution was held at the Zamboanga City High School-main campus in Barangay Tetuan where over 50 families are temporarily housed.

It was the second, as the City also distributed relief assistance last March 31.

Rojas said the food packs include rice, sardines, noodles, coffee and water.

Earlier, the City also distributed cooking pots and pales to the displaced families.

Records from Rojas's office show that a total of 118 families were affected by the fire.

Rojas said the City will again distribute another set of food packs on April 8. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
