MORE than a thousand residents from Barangay San Agustin, Candaba received food packs from the Provincial Government of Pampanga.
Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Angie Blanco, together with Mayor Rene Maglanque and former fourth district Representative Anna York Bondoc, led the distribution of relief goods to a total of 1,587 flood victims.
Barangay San Agustin in this town was one of the most affected areas in the province as floodwaters reached as high as 13 feet.
As of Friday morning, September 17, the floodwater in the said town was still seven feet high, and portions of its access roads remain hardly passable to light vehicles.
Maglanque expressed gratitude to Governor Dennis Pineda for the assistance he provided to his constituents, especially at this time when pandemic made it more inconvenient to flood victims.
"Nagpapasalamat po kami kay Governor Delta at pati na rin kay Cong. Ana York sa patuloy nilang pagtulong sa bayan namin, mapa-baha, pandemic at kung ano man disasters, hindi po nila kami kinalimutan," he said.
(We are grateful to Governor Delta as well as Cong. Ana York for their continued help to our town. In times of floods, pandemics and whatever disasters, they have not forgotten us.)
