To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

The Muntinlupa City government, led by Mayor Ruffy Biazon, distributed rice to senior citizens and fishermen as Christmas gifts.

Biazon said the distribution of rice to senior citizens in different barangays started on Dec. 12.

“Lahat ng barangay ay mayroon pong schedule, at araw-araw po ito hanggang matapos ang distribution. Makipag-ugnayan sa senior citizen organizations sa inyong lugar kung mayroong katanungan (All barangays have a schedule and this will be daily until the distribution is finished. Please coordinate with the senior citizen organization in your area if you have questions),” said Biazon in a Facebook post.

According to Office for Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) chief Zenaida Celestino, the rice distribution is held yearly as part of the “Pamaskong Handog” to the elderly.

The mayor said OSCA and different city departments are working hand-in-hand to ensure the orderly distribution of the rice.

In addition, the city government celebrated the Araw ng Mangingisda (Fishermen Day) through the Lake Management Office (LMO).

About 1,000 fishermen joined the celebration.

LMO head Herminio dela Cruz said this is one way for the city government to bring together the fishermen and give them happiness.

Each fisherman received five kilos of rice and raffle prizes were also given away.
