ANGELES CITY – Mayor Carmelo ‘Pogi’ Lazatin Jr. has ordered the installation of container vans that will serve as storage for the city’s food stockpile.
In fact, Mayor Lazatin, with Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel supervised the installation on March 23, 2020 at the City Hall Compound.
The container vans will house the food stocks Mayor Lazatin ordered to purchase as part of the emergency supplies for indigent families in the city. The food stocks also include donations from Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and private individuals.
Mayor Lazatin also prepared 100,000 emergency food packs each containing 4 kilos of rice and 10 canned goods for a family of five persons for four days.
“During these trying times, our indigent families are highly affected. I want to assure them that they will be completely aided throughout this public health concern,” he said.
Moreover, Lazatin shared that the local government aims to be ready and resilient in every way possible, with or without the coronavirus outbreak.
“Part of being in public service means you are always ready
to address all the needs of your constituents. This is why with or without the
coronavirus outbreak, here at the City Government, we always want to be ready
and prepared for anything,” he added.
