Some one hundred twenty (120) indigents benefited from the burial, financial and medical assistance extended by first lady Anne Gordon on Wednesday, July 21, 2010 at the FMA Hall of City Hall.

City Social Welfare and Development Office head Gene Eclarino said the benefiaries have earlier appealed to Mayor Bong Gordon for assistance.

“Agad namang tinugon ni Mayor Bong Gordon ang kahilingan ng ating mga kalungsod na nangangailangan. People in crisis situation should be heard and be given attention,” Eclarino added.

Lolita Resuello, one of the beneficiaries said, “Nagpapasalamat ako kay Ma’am Anne at Mayor Gordon sa tulong na binigay nila sa aming mahihirap, may sakit kasi ang anak ko, malaking tulong ito para sa aking pamilya.”

Social Services is part of Mayor Gordon’s HELPS program which truly addresses the need of Olongapeños in all aspects.

With Social Services, Olongapo City has been receiving awards from several award giving bodies like, “Most Child Friendly City” in the country from 2001 to 2003; “Most Child Friendly City” Regional Awardee from 2001 to 2009; Outstanding VAW Responsive LGU in 2009 and Best in Quality of Life given by the Philippine Cities Competitiveness Ranking Project (PCCRP) of the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) and more.

First Lady Anne Gordon hands over an envelope to one of the 120 recipients of the financial assistance from the Olongapo City Government through City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO).
