The distribution of assistance to a total of 988 beneficiaries, composed of nine families from Brgy. Tuburan Sur in Danao City, one family from Brgy. Sabang affected by a landslide, and victims of a fire incident at the Danao Public Market last year, was held at the Cebu Technological University-Danao Campus. The event was attended by Danao City Mayor Thomas Mark Durano, Vice Mayor Ramon Durano III, former congressman Red Durano, and former tourism secretary Ace Durano.

Meanwhile, 1,002 beneficiaries from Bogo City received the cash aid distributed by Senator Marcos, with assistance from Bogo City Mayor Carlo Jose A. Martinez and Vice Mayor Maria Cielo Martinez, at the Bogo City Hall Compound Covered Court.

In her message, Senator Marcos said the release of the AICS assistance through the DSWD-7 will help the families who are undergoing financial difficulties. 

The senator also brought with her the nutribun, which she personally distributed to the beneficiaries of Danao City’s Anak Program and selected children of Brgy. Sabang, Danao.
