BALANGA CITY — The 48th Infantry Battalion (48IB) distributed Tuesday sacks of rice to residents of Barangay Pita in Dinalupihan town.
In a statement, 703rd Brigade Commander Col. Andrew Costelo said 932 families received the rice as aid during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) period.
Personnel of the 48IB delivered each sack, which is equivalent to 25 kilos, house-to-house in coordination with the municipal and barangay officials.
Costelo extended gratitude to the municipal government of Dinalupihan for their assistance and asked residents to abide rules being implemented in their area.
“The efforts of our different local government units are superb in order to satisfy needs of the deprived especially that we are in the middle of ECQ. With this, we ask the public to just stay home and strictly follow ECQ protocols,” Costelo stressed.
