Press Release - Bong Go assists impoverished residents in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro as he continues to promote welfare of the poor

Senator Christopher "Bong" Go's outreach team and the Office of Councilor Jelina Magsuci conducted a relief operation at the City Mall in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro on Tuesday, November 28.

Go's team distributed snacks to 650 beneficiaries, while select recipients received a bicycle, cellular phone, shirts, and balls for basketball and volleyball.

Meanwhile, financial assistance from the national government was also given to qualified residents in coordination with local officials.

During the event, Mayor Malou Morillo greeted the participants and expressed her support for the initiative while lauding Go for his continuous support to the city and to other communities in need.
