DAVAO CITY – President Duterte announced on Monday night that he would give P250,000 in cash assistance to each of the families of the 15 people who died in the Sept. 2 bombing at a night market here.
The President added that the same amount would be given to 11 others who have been left disabled by the blast.
At least 70 people were wounded in the attack, but only 11 who were “reduced to disability” will get P250,000.
Mr. Duterte said 21 others who were still in hospital, as of Monday, would receive P100,000 each as cash assistance.
The announcement was made during a meeting between the President and the bombing survivors and the families of those who died or were severely hurt. SFM
