Some 21,548 households in Cagayan de Oro City will receive relief goods from City Hall good for approximately 15 days. Each family beneficiary will receive 15 kilos of rice, 5 pieces canned corned beef, beef loaf and sardines and 15 packs of instant noodles. The distribution will be conducted via ‘house-to-house’ for households with at least 5 family members.
Profiling of target beneficiaries is currently being undertaken by respective barangays. Those in priority are trisikad drivers, jeepney, taxi, bus, and habal-habal drivers, scavengers and ambulant vendors.
Meanwhile, the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) Office will not be allowing volunteers in the repacking of relief goods to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The distribution will be done in coordination with the barangays and Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan which volunteered to assist in the distribution as well as other individual and company donors.
