Around 121 families and 27 individuals affected by the fire that hit Barangay Tomas Monteverde in Agdao Sunday received assistance from the city government through the City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO).

The victims are currently at the barangay covered court. They were given food packs, sleeping mats, and medicines.

Maria Luisa Bermudo, head of CSSDO, said the local government is set to extend financial assistance to the victims this week.

Owners of houses destroyed by fire will receive P10,000. Those whose houses are damaged by the fire will also receive P5,000.

Renters and boarders will also receive cash assistance.

Bermudo’s office will also provide stress debriefing sessions to the victims, especially the mothers and children. CIO
