Camarines Sur Gov. Migz Villafuerte thanks task force for allowing jeepneys for food distribution


Camarines Sur Gov. Migz Villafuerte has found a way to help jeepney drivers earn while providing food assistance to his constituents.

In a Facebook post, Villafuerte thanked the Bicol Inter-agency Task Force for allowing the hiring of jeepneys to be used for the Probinsya sa Food Assistance Program.

The jeepneys would be used to distribute relief goods.

He said this would speed up the operation and help the jeepney drivers who lost a regular source of income due to the Luzon-wide quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID 19.

Call it a win-win solution!

“Maraming salamat sa Bicol Inter-agency Task Force sa pagpayag sa aming request na makapag-arkila ng mga jeepney na gagamitin naman ng Probinsya sa Food Assistance Program o distribution ng relief goods. Hindi lamang nito mapapabilis ang aming operasyon, makakatulong pa ito sa mga drayber ng jeep na nawalan ng kabuhayan simula ng Enhanced Community Quarantine,” Villafuerte posted.
