San Juan readies 17th wave of food packs
Residents of San Juan City’s 21 villages will receive the 17th wave of food packs this week from the local government, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
The relief items were repacked from donations of celebrities, entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations, and other business companies that responded to the city’s call to help alleviate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
"We are now preparing 45,000 food packs," Mayor Francis Zamora posted on Facebook on Tuesday.
The distribution will be conducted house-to-house to avoid crowding.
Each food pack contains rice, noodles, canned goods, milk, coffee, energy drink, and other food items.
"Bilang isang mayor, gusto ko sabihin ng bawat San Juaeño na noong panahon ng pandemya, walang napabayaan. Lahat ay naalagaan (As the mayor, I would like to hear from each San Juaeño that during the time of the pandemic, no one was neglected, everyone was taken care of). We are trying our very best to do whatever we can to help our constituents," he said in a Facebook live update while also lauding the efforts and dedication of all City Hall employees.
Zamora also reported they are now open to vaccinate non-residents and non-workers after achieving population protection against Covid-19.
"We are ready and more than willing to vaccinate anyone as long as they register online and they should not have been inoculated with the first dose in other areas,” Zamora said in a separate statement.
He said they will wait for the uniform guidelines before starting the inoculation.
