CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga – Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda announced on Friday that the provincial government will purchase P75-million worth of rice intended for distribution to indigent Kapampangans greatly affected by the on-going enhanced community quarantine in the entire Luzon due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

This was the agreement reached during the meeting of the governor with the department heads at the Executive House, Capitol Building, Barangay Sto. Niño here.

“We have to prioritize and subsidize the need of the indigent Kapampangans like the displaced workers, solo parents, transport group, minimum wage earners, job order employees, and scavengers,” the governor said.

He also asked all Kapampangans who have more than enough supply of goods to also share assistance to the less fortunate ones.

“To our well-off cabalens, we will really be needing your assistance in today’s time of calamity. If you can at least adopt and support a family, please do so,” the governor appealed.

Governor Delta is set to meet with all the Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) presidents across the province today (March 21).
