MANILA, Philippines — The Cash and Rice Distribution (CARD) program, which will provide food and financial assistance to beneficiaries, was launched in Isabela on Saturday.

According to House Speaker Martin Romualdez, this program was the government’s way to make rice accessible to people.

“Tinanggap ng inyong Kongreso ang hamon ng pagtulong at agad kaming nakipag-ugnayan sa DSWD at sa ating mga kaibigan mula sa industriya ng bigas para masigurado na mananatiling abot-kamay ang bigas sa marami nating kababayan,” Romualdez said.
