The Cavite Police Provincial Office (CPPO) in partnership with the Cavite Provincial Government and the Imus police station distributed relief goods late Thursday afternoon to fire victims who are temporary sheltered at the Palico 4 covered court here.
Police provincial public information office chief Superintendent Janet Arinabo and Imus City chief of police Supt. Norman Raňon led the distribution of food packs and clothing to around 67 families at the evacuation center.
The evacuees were rendered homeless during the fire that hit their homes at Ordoňez Compound near the Perpetual Village, in Palico 4 in this city on Labor Day (May 1).
Supt. Arinabo told that “the project is in line with the PNP’s thrust to strengthen police relations with the community” and live up the Philippine National Police (PNP) core values of “makatao” (pro-people).
The assorted donations poured in from different police stations and precincts on the initiative of the Cavite Police Provincial Office.
The scores of fire victims are among the more than 100 families of informal settlers at Barangay Palico who were displaced by the blaze.
The city government is still planning for their relocation site as the cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Imus City Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP). (PNA)
