Meanwhile, Maricel Yu, CSWS head, said that the victims of the December 6 fire in sitio Superior, Barangay Looc might also get their financial assistance before the end of the year.

“Paninguhaon karun buwana kay musira baya December na baya, hopefully ma submit karun (list) aron tomorrow ma endorse sa Sangguniang Panglungsod for appropriation of budget,” said Yu.

Some 154 families or 727 individuals were displaced by the fire. However, Yu said that some victims are subject to verification.

“Aron ma siguro nato nga walay nagdoble, o wala nasunugan pero nagpalista. Ganina naay nagpalista kay naagian daw siya sa bombero, nabasa iya’ng balay, amo’ng giingnan dili pwede,” she said./rcg
