Pacquiao distributes aid to ASF-affected hog raisers in Oro

SENATOR Manny Pacquiao Friday, February 26, 2021, led the distribution of relief goods to 1,000 hog raisers who were affected by the African Swine Fever (ASF) in Cagayan de Oro.

Apart from distributing relief goods, which contained grocery items including rice and chicken, Pacquiao also handed out cash.

The hog raisers came from the eight barangays in Cagayan de Oro with confirmed cases of ASF. Barangays Mambuaya, San Simon, Agusan, Macasandig, Baikingon, Tablon and Puerto were among the ASF-affected barangays.

The distribution of aid was held in the covered court of Barangay Tablon.

"Nanawagan ako, hindi lamang sa iilan kundi lahat, tayo'y magtulong-tulong. Yung may mga kaya, yung may mga pera, ilabas nyo, tulungan natin... aanhin yung pera pag wala na tayo rito. Kailangan yung mga tao masuportahan natin, matulungan natin," Pacquiao said.

Prior to his visit in Cagayan de Oro, Pacquiao was in Rizal, Batangas, some cities in Manila, Cagayan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Sarangani, and Bukidnon.

"Huwag tayo mawalan ng pag-asa, huwag tayo mahinaan ng loob, nandyan ang Panginoon laging gumagabay sa atin. Mag-ampo lang ta sa Ginoo permanente, Siya lang ang sandalan natin at nagbibigya sa atin ng proteksyon at blessings," Pacquiao said.
