Narra distributes food packs to quarantined residents

Mayor Gerandy Danao, in an interview with Palawan News, assured that the LGU will be providing assistance to the families and encouraged Narranons to plant crops around their home because they could not determine the duration of the government assistance to the families.

The municipal government of Narra has started distributing food packs for all the households across town on Wednesday.

Mayor Gerandy Danao, in an interview with Palawan News, assured that the LGU will be providing assistance to the families and encouraged Narranons to plant crops around their home because they could not determine the duration of the government assistance to the families.

“May ibibigay ang gobyerno, pero siguro hindi rin kakayanin kung humaba ‘yong labanan na ito baka hindi kayanin na magbigay ng magbigay, kailangan din ng kunting diskarte kahit magtanim ng gulay, gulay sa palibot ng bahay natin, kung may bigas ka, ‘yong ulam na lang ang poproblemahin, pero matutulungan natin sila, matutulungan, kasi kung iisipin mo nga paano sila makakahanapbuhay e, lockdown? Kaya kailangan ‘yong galaw natin, kahit andyan lang tayo sa bahay meron tayong makakain,” he said.

Some 1,498 families from Barangay Panacan 2 and 1,963 from Bgy. Antipuluan were the first batch received the food packs.

Over 21,000 food packs from the calamity fund of the Local Government of Narra were expected to be fully distributed within the week.

Each food pack contains 20 kilos of rice, 10 pieces canned goods, 10 pieces instant noodles, 1 pack of coffee, and 2 pieces bath soap.

The distribution was gradual because the local government is still waiting for more supplies to be delivered to them due to certain limitations of logistics.

On the official Facebook page of the Inter-Agency task force-COVID-19 named Fight for COVID-19 updates, they assured everyone that all families in the town will be receiving their own food packs that will be distributed by their barangay officials.

“Ang number po ng families sa barangay ay nagmula sa mga ibinigay na impormasyon ng Punong Barangays ng Narra. Ang mga food packs po ay idedeliver sa bawat purok at pamamahalaan pa rin ng LGU-Narra. Maghintay lang po tayo sa ating mga tahanan,” it stated.

“Makakatiyak po kayong lahat ng pamilya sa lahat ng barangay sa bayan ng Narra ay makakatanggap ng food packs mula sa inyong local na pamahalaan,” it added.

Danao also encourages well-off Narranons to extend assistance to those who needed much help from the government.

“Talagang mabigat ang nararanasan nating ito, napakabigat, hindi biro, kaya siguro sa mga may kakayanan, may kapasidad ito na siguro ‘yong panahon na tumulong sila sa taong bayan kasi kung hindi tayo magtutulungan, mahirap,” he said.
