At least 75 families who lost their homes during a big fire in Barangay Poblacion 2 in Tagbilaran City received P10,000 cash each from the provincial government of Bohol on Thursday, Dec. 29.
The distribution coincided with
Gov. Aris Aumentado’s 45th birth anniversary.
“Gipili nako nga diri magsaulog sa akong adlawng natawhan kauban ang mga nasunugan para ipa-feel nila nga daghan ang nagmahal nila,” he said. “Nga dili sila angay mawad-an og paglaum.”
He was accompanied by his wife Bohol 2nd district Rep. Vanessa Aumentado, Vice Gov. Victor Balite, Tagbilaran Vice Mayor Adam Jala, Poblacion 2 Barangay Captain Ricardo Real and Anthony Damalerio.
After the distribution of financial assistance and food packs, the fire victims and barangay officials surprised Aumentado by giving him a birthday cake and singing “Happy birthday.”
The Dec. 23 fire killed three persons and left 75 families or 321 individuals homeless.
