Some 2,500 flood-stricken tricycle drivers in the city who had to forego their usual operations received cash assistance from Senator Imee Marcos thru the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) last August 5.
The senator visited the city to personally extend assistance to the group and distribute enhanced Nutribuns and toys to children at the CSI Stadia together with Mayor Belen Fernandez who had requested the aid for tricycle drivers.
The mayor had considered the drivers’ plight in the midst of a week-long flooding that submerged Dagupan due to typhoon Egay.
Sen. Marcos had made several visits to Dagupan to lead several events such as the mounting of Kadiwa ng Pangulo stores, Nutribun program, AICS for Solo Parents as well as the ceremonial Christmas Tree Lighting and the annual Bangus Festival.
