In the aftermath of the recent fire in Brgy. Tagumpay, Coron, Palawan, the DSWD Field Office MIMAROPA acted promptly to provide essential aid.
Collaborating with the local government’s initiatives, the agency distributed 70 family food packs, hygiene kits, family kits, and kitchen kits to residents affected by the incident.
In addition to these relief supplies, the agency extended financial assistance through the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations (AICS), totaling ₱500,000.00.
It can be recalled that last Tuesday, November 30, a fierce fire tore through the coastal barangay of Tagumpay, leaving a trail of destruction as it rapidly consumed numerous residences.
Local authorities and firefighting teams promptly mobilized to combat the emergency, working tirelessly to contain the escalating inferno.
Ongoing assessments aim to determine the full extent of the damage and provide immediate assistance to those impacted.
