THE Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) distributed grocery packs to a total of 1, 233 families affected by a fire that hit Baseco Compound in Port Area, Manila.
On February 4, a fire hit Barangay 649, Port Area, Manila, leaving hundreds of families homeless.
Royina Marzan-Garma, PCSO general manager, said she deployed a team to Baseco to distribute their “Bundle of Love” grocery packs to the fire-displaced families.
PCSO said its ‘Bundle of Love’ grocery packs contain biscuits, chocolate drinks, and milk.
The PCSO general manager said the agency wants Filipinos affected by fire and calamities “to feel that they are not alone—that they have a government they can rely on.”
Meanwhile, the residents expressed gratitude toward the PCSO for the grocery packs the agency provided.
Garma said that the aid they gave to residents of Baseco Compound came from the generous bettors who keep on patronizing their products. With this, she urged the public to keep buying their products in order to help more Filipinos in need.
“I am appealing to the public to continue patronizing our products, because many Filipino families rely on PCSO,” she said.
