Tuguegarao City – As a celebration of Easter Sunday, youth leaders in Camalaniugan, Cagayan distributed free meals, breads and eggs, and meat.
In the midst of COVID-19, some barangays in the said town resume their free meal program as the holy week ends.
In Casili, Camalaniugan, officials and private citizens worked hand in hand to provide meat for the whole barangay. Each household regardless of social status, received almost a kilo of meat. This is in addition to their previous relief pack containing fruits and vegetables.
Meanwhile, SK officers of Sapping, Camalaniugan handed out Easter eggs to cheer up children affected by the quarantine, and 200 households received breads.
28 barangays of Camalaniugan set up their own talipapa to lessen the crowd at the public market, and to provide a nearer food source to their residents. With the income from the SK Talipapa projects, and donations from concerned citizens, they were able to sustain their daily free meal drive in quarantine areas.
The officers thanked the private citizens for their donations, and urged the public to continue supporting their initiatives as they stay at home.
