Iloilo City – The DSWD Field Office VI released food and non-food items to 25 families affected by fire here.
“This is an augmentation to the resources of the city government to help the fire victims recover,” said Judith Tanate Baredo, head of the Disaster Response Management Division of DSWD FO VI.
