53EB provides assistance to outreach operation in Moalboal, Cebu
CEBU CITY, June 19 (PIA) — The 53rd Engineering Brigade of the Philippine Army heeded the call of United Architects of the Philippines (UAP-Sugbu) and EvolvePH Communities in providing human resource and transportation assistance for its Outreach Operation at Basdiot Elementary School, Moalboal, Cebu on June 11-12, 2020.
A total of 200 families benefited from the food distribution while 500 relief goods and items were distributed to the poorest families and pupils of the said area.
Relief goods distributed include food packs, vitamins, and toys.
UAP-Sugbu and EvolvePH Communities have been working to provide food security to vulnerable communities affected by the lockdown brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents of the said barangay conveyed their gratitude to the Army Engineers and UAP-Sugbu and EvolvePH Communities.
Since the start of the pandemic, the livelihood of the people in the area has been affected because they largely depend on tourism.
The people are left with no income due to the absence of tourists who used to swarm to the pristine beaches of the municipality. (hfg/PIA7 with reports from 53EB)
