Various sectors in Pangasinan benefit from Cayetanos’ two-day outreach activities

“Malaking salamat po sa naibibigay ninyong tulong sa aming mga magsasaka, Senator Alan at Senator Pia.”

Lianillo Lopez expressed his gratitude to Senators Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano for reaching out to 1,000 farmers and fisherfolk in the town of Aguilar, Pangasinan on July 8, 2024 as part of their two-day visit in the province.

The disbursement of assistance was made possible in partnership with the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the support of Pangasinan 2nd District Representative Mark O. Cojuangco.

“Pinilit po ng ating mga senador na maabot at magbigay ng tulong sa atin. Makakaasa tayo na masusundan pa ito rito sa ating distrito,” Cojuangco told the beneficiaries.

The next day, July 9, more Pangasinenses, including health workers and women attending a maternal seminar, benefited from a similar outreach activity. A total of 181 beneficiaries from Dagupan City and 203 from San Carlos City were also assisted by the senators’ team.

These activities were made possible with the help of Ms. Khrismae “Mimi” Dy, staff of Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher de Venecia, and San Carlos City Mayor Julier “Ayoy” Resuello.

Barangay Health Worker Roda Andongo expressed her gratitude to the senators for their dedication to community development workers, a sector they consistently empower through their programs and legislation.

“Maraming salamat po, Senator Alan at Senator Pia, sa ibinigay ninyo po lalong-lalo na po at marami kayong natulungan na maliit lang po ang kinikita,” she said.

Over all, the senators were able to provide aid to 1,384 residents of Pangasinan during their past visit. This is not their first time to bring aid to the province as they previously assisted 4,800 in April and 2,500 in June this year.

The Cayetanos have been working with various agencies and local government units to reach different provinces across the country to deliver essential aid to marginalized Filipinos.
