by Ben Moses Ebreo
Solano, Nueva Vizcaya (February 3) -- A total of 192 families living within the Gawad Kalinga (GK) sites in the province received on Wednesday (February 3) gift packs from the provincial government here.
The gift packs were given to the GK families in barangay Bascaran here under Governor Luisa Cuaresma?s yearly gift giving program for the poor.
The recipient families received each more than P300.00-worth of groceries and food items such as rice, coffee, cooking oil, soy sauce, sugar, canned goods and bathing and dishwashing soaps among others.
Board member Efren Quiben, provincial GK head said the activity has been running for four years in the province designed to provide assistance to the indigent sectors.
He said the package of assistance should have been given in December last year but was delayed due to new policies and guidelines of the provincial government.
The recipient families came from GK sites in the towns of Solano, Diadi, Bambang and Dupax del Norte. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
