Cebu Fifth District Representative Vincent Franco “Duke” Frasco led the distribution of cash assistance to 605 beneficaries in Danao City.
The 605 beneficiaries received P10,000 each for a total worth of P6,050,000.
The beneficiaries were the market vendors whose stalls were destroyed by the fire that hit the Danao City Public Market last month.
“Grabe among kalipay sa gihatag na ayuda ni Congressman Duke kai dako na kaayo nig tabang para sa among pagpabarog balik sa among negosyo”, said one beneficiary.
At least P52.2 million worth of property was lost in the fire that gobbled up half of the market on June 2, 2022.
Fire investigator said that at least a hundred stalls were totally burned comprising 80 percent of the total number of stalls in the market.
