THE Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) has started its second wave of relief operations to residents affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic in Marawi City.
BARMM, through the Tulong Alay sa Bangsamorong Nangangailangan (Tabang), has already distributed a total of 13,912 sacks of rice to 22 villages in Marawi City as of Monday, September 21.
Included in the rice distribution is the village of Sagonsongan where the internally displaced persons from the Most Affected Area (MAA) during the Marawi siege are sheltered.
BARMM Deputy Chief Minister Aleem Ali Solaiman, through his representative, Salahudin Bin Hamza, leads the second wave relief operations.
“This Covid-19 crisis will not hinder us in helping our fellow Bangsamoro people. Project Tabang has allotted 300,000 sacks of rice to Marawi City and the entire Lanao del Sur as well as parts Lanao del Norte and will deliver them to each barangay,” Bin Hamza said.
Bin Hamza said that each of the family-beneficiary receives 25 kilos sack of rice.
Tabang’s second wave of relief operation in Marawi City is on top of BARMM’s other assistance in keeping with its commitment to assist its constituents during the pandemic. (SunStar Zamboanga)
