0

The Sorsogon provincial government has provided relief aid to the members of the events sector in the province whose jobs were deeply affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.

The events sector is composed of photographers, event stylists, florists, clowns, party hosts, sound system crew among others.

“Dahil sa banta ng COVID-19 sa publiko, ipinagbawal ang mga mass gatherings sa ilalim ng ECQ at GCQ,” said the Capitol.

“Marami ang nagkansela ng mga selebrasyon tulad ng kasal at birthday parties, kung kaya’t isa sa mga lubos na naapektuhang industriya ay ang events,” it added.

The Sorsogon provincial government also provided relief aid to the members of the tourism sector, informal workers and tricycle drivers.

“Ayon kay Joces Maceres, isa sa mga miyembro ng nasabing sektor, malaking tulong ito sakanila at malaki din ang kanilang pasasalamat dahil hindi sila nakalimutan ng pamahalaang lalawigan,” said the province.
