Kapamilya love reached more Filipinos as ABS-CBN Foundation’s “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig: Isang Daan. Isang Pamilya” campaign distributed food packs and Ligtas bags outside Metro Manila for those greatly affected by the community quarantine imposed to contain COVID-19.
Through “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig,” 1,500 families with senior citizens were given food packs in Sta. Barbara, Baliuag, Bulacan. Food packs and Ligtas bags were also given to over 1,000 families in Batangas.
With the continuous support of various donors, ABS-CBN’s “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig” was able to share the love as well to 500 families, including indigenous groups, in Bataan. Down south, several barangays all over Bicol were showered with generosity as the network got to distribute 1,500 food packs and 3,000 Ligtas bags.
Ligtas bags were first introduced in ABS-CBN’s “Tulong-Tulong sa Taal” campaign early this year. It contains food and useful items in times of emergency.
As of July 30, ABS-CBN’s “Pantawid ng Pag-ibig” was able to raise over P444 million cash and in-kind donations from generous individuals and organizations for the benefit of more than 872,000 families who lost their source of livelihood as the pandemic continues to hurt the country’s economy and cause unemployment.
ABS-CBN Integrated Public Service head and Sagip Kapamilya director Jun Dungo expressed gratitude for the support that the campaign continues to get from generous and kind-hearted Filipinos.
“Karangalan natin na pagkatiwalaan tayo ng publiko whether individual or institutional donors. Ipinagkakatiwala nila sa atin itong kanilang donations kasi siguro iyong trust nila makakarating ito doon sa mga nangangailangan,” he said.
