THE Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Barmm), through its Project Tabang (Tulong Alay sa Bangsamorong Nangangailangan) and the Ministry of Health, extended Monday, March 29, 2021, its second wave of relief aid to the victims of a fire in Zamboanga City.
Around 400 families were displaced when a fire hit a coastal community in Baliwasan village, Zamboanga City on March 20.
The relief distribution was facilitated through the Services and Actions with Love and Integrity from the Government (Salig) program of Barmm Executive Secretary and Member of Parliament Abdulraof Macacua.
Macacua said each of the displaced families received 10 kilos of rice and sets of hygiene kits.
Ustadz Mubarak Dumato, Salig program focal person, said the Barmm government, regardless of religion and ethnicity, is not only focusing on the geographical boundaries of the autonomous region in providing assistance to calamity victims.
Monday’s relief distribution was facilitated by City Social Welfare and Development Office of Zamboanga City, Baliwasan village council, and volunteers from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front’s organic members in the city.
Barmm conducted its first wave of relief distribution on Friday, March 26.
Project Tabang is a special program of Barmm Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim aimed at facilitating the direct and immediate extension of basic services and assistance to Barmm constituents. (SunStar Zamboanga)
