The Mankayan municipal government has given P570,000 worth of financial aid to the 57 victims of the Lepanto Public Market fire.
Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong said he hopes the cash assistance will help the victims recover from the tragedy.
The Benguet politiko said the P570,000 came from the municipal government’s disaster risk reduction and management fund.
Ayong also said other people have also signified their intentions to help the victims.
“We are elated there are some good Samaritans even during times of crisis and we hope they will touch the hearts of others for them to extend a helping hand to the ones in need and be blessed at all times,” he said.
