BROOKE’S POINT, Palawan — Some P8.5 million have been distributed to frontliners in 18 barangays covering the fight against COVID-19 in this town.

Town mayor Mary Jean Feliciano said the amount will help ease the financial burden of the frontliners.

“Gusto natin ma-compensate ang tulong ng mga frontliners during ECQ at GCQ. Mahirap mag-repack at deliver sa mga bahay-bahay, likewise ang magbantay sa buong barangay,” she said.

“Kaya kahit may tao pang nagpa-delay or nagpabinbin ng hazard pay na ito ay talagang ipinaglaban natin upang kahit man lang sa maliit na halaga ay maipadama natin ang ating pasasalamat sa kanilang kooperasyon at mula sa puso na paglilingkod sa ating mga kababayan,” Feliciano added.

Frontliners who were able to complete serving of their duties during the ECQ and GCQ received P7,500 each, while received P5,000 each.
