QUEZON City District 1 (QCD1) Representative Arjo Atayde joins forces with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte in aiding the victims of the recent fire in 224 Don Manuel, Barangay Balingasa.
The fire was caused by faulty electrical wiring and it quicky spread, incinerating the homes of almost 700 families last September 8 and true to his Aksyon Agad moniker, Atayde was immediately present to access the damage and provide much needed help to the families.
And for the very first time in the district, assistance was expeditiously distributed the following day on September 9 through the help of DSWD.
“It only took one phone call for DSWD Secretary Erwin Tulfo to respond,” says Atayde. “President Bongbong Marcos have chosen an action man to head DSWD and we at the district could not thank him enough for his quick response.”
DSWD donated Php5,000.00 cash assistance and relief boxes for each family while Atayde is currently supplying them with regular rations of drinking water.
The relief and rehabilitation efforts continues as Atayde is concurrently conferring with Mayor Joy Belmonte and her team in coming up with a sustainable plan on the speedy rebuilding of all the burnt houses while gearing up in the distribution of another set of essentials such as food, water, and medicine to each family.
