CAVITE CITY – More than 700 families received a total of P30,000 from the joint program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Team Revilla on Tuesday, May 9, 2023.

The recipients were the victims of the massive fire that struck Quadra in Cavite City last April 27.

This is in addition to the initial P10,000 given earlier from the Office of Congressman Jolo Revilla and P30,000 cash from the local government of Cavite City under the leadership of Mayor Denver Chua.

Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr. and the Agimat Party-list Representative Cong. Bryan Revilla led the distribution of financial assistance for the affected families.

“It’s nice to see our compatriots smiling again after spending almost two weeks here in Ladislao Diwa Elementary School (LADES) as their temporary shelter, with a supplement to [rebuild their] houses again,” Jolo said.

Some families have also started returning to their residences and rebuilding their houses.

“Just proof that as long as we work together and help each other in service, our kababayan can recover immediately,” Jolo added.
