Baguio city to continue feeding vulnerable households until Dec.

Not in Baguio city!

If other local government units (LGU’s) even in the national capital region are sounding the alarm that they cannot provide for another 15 days for their constituents need, you would like to wish your in the summer capital while this Luzon wide is still in effect.

As per the plan, around 10,000 families have been guaranteed aid under a social welfare proposal being drawn up for a transition plan, which would gradually reopen vital retail, manufacturing, and transport enterprises.

The Office of the City Social Welfare and Development will also provide stress counseling sessions after May for medical and security frontliners who fought to contain the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the city. 

Psychological counseling would also be given to barangay officials who managed the neighborhood curfew and distributed food and cash grants to families who have stayed indoors for more than a month, said Baguio social welfare officer, Betty Fangasan.

Currently around the city is helping 5,000 transient students and workers who were not able to leave the city after the announced lockdown.

The city had to change their plans when Benguet province was included in a list of high risk communities that required an extension of the quarantine until May 15.

As of presstime, Baguio recorded 8 new COVID-19 infections on Saturday (April 25), raising the number of patients who contracted the disease to 25.

The increase was anticipated since the city health workers are now conducting aggressively mass testing to its residents for COVID-19, said Mayor Benjamin Magalong.
