Romblon LGU rolls out assistance to residents


The Romblon local government has started rolling out food packs and financial aid to its residents amid the coronavirus disease pandemic.

Romblon Mayor Gerard Montojo said that the LGU distributed yesterday relief goods and P500 assistance to his constituents.

“Nagsimula na pong mamahagi ng food packs at 500pesos cash per household ang LGU-Romblon kaninang umaga hanggang hapon sa walo nitong barangay,” said Montojo.

The barangay beneficiaries are as follows: Agbaluto, Macalas, Tambac, Ilauran, Sablayan, Agnaga, Calabogo and Lamao.

Luzon island remains under enhanced community quarantine until April 30 due to the threats of coronavirus disease.

President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to decide this week whether or not to extend the lockdown anew, which was originally scheduled to end last April 13.
