The Pasig City mayor has a request to all Pasiguenos.

Mayor Vico Sotto has appealed to his constituents to be patient because of some delays on food pack distribution to 100,000 poorest families amid the enhanced community quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, saying that first round of distribution is expected to be done by Monday next week.


“Hindi pa po tayo tapos rito, ongoing po po ang distribution. Ang target po natin mga lugar na pinakamahihirap. Alam po namin na hindi perpekto iyong pagbaba ng grocery packs kasi hindi po tayo nagkaroon ng mahabang panahon para paghandaan ito. Ilang araw lang ang pagakakaton na planuhin ito. Hindi siya magiging madali," Sotto said in his Facebook Live appearance on Friday.

“100,000 families po ang ating gustong tulungan at sa ngayon po, nangangalahati pa lang tayo dun sa kailangan nating bigyan sa ating first wave. Huwag na po nating awayin ang mga barangay, mga team, because everybody is doing the best that they can.  Antay-antay lang po tayo, makakarating rin po," Sotto added.

Sotto then said that the first wave of food pack distribution, which started on Monday this week, is expected to resume  by Monday next week.

However, the mayor assured the public that the poorest households, which the program is for, will get their due food packs.

“Tinitignan po natin baka may nalaktawan po, baka may ibang bahay na di nabigyan,  ibang lugar na dapat unahin pero iba ang nauna. Normal lang po ito. Isipin po ninyo, 100,000 families po ito, hindi po talaga madali. But rest assured, we are doing the best that we can,” Sotto said.

Moreover, Sotto said the food pack distribution will have a second or even third round, depending on the quarantine period, because the city government was able to procure 400,000 food packs thus far.

“Hindi lang po ito isang round, meron pa po. Iyong mga private companies na nasa Pasig, tumutulong na rin po. Sa susunod na wave, mas marami na po tayong matutulungan pa,” Sotto pointed out.

He then appealed to his constituents not to crowd the trucks used of distributing food packs in observance of social distancing for the safety of everybody.


“Huwag po nating dumugin ang mga truck. Sinusubukan po nating mag-house-to-house, pero sa ibang lugar, mahirap po, hindi po nagkakasya iyong truck, pero hangga’t kaya, ginagawa naman po natin,” Sotto added.
