Barangay in Q.C give “Sosyal Relief Packs” with 2 kilos of Honey Rice and four Expensive Can Goods

Due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine implemented in all areas of the Philippines, most barangays, municipalities, and even big cities, are providing their constituents with relief goods. These care packages contain the basic staples that a family needs: Rice, canned goods, instant noodles, and yes, even a roll of tissue and a bottle of rubbing alcohol.

While most relief goods are kept on a budget, a barangay in Quezon City, instead of giving away sardines and least expensive canned goods, surprised their constituents by inching cans of Spam and Libby’s Vienna sausages in their packages!

If you are not aware, Quezon City has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country. With the current number of 6,200, the city has more than 1,000 recorded cases.

This might be one of the ways why the Barangay Chairman, Louie Munoz, wants to put smiles on his constituents’ faces.

The Barangay where these impressive relief goods came from, Barangay Doña Josefa, is, believe it or not, still COVID-19 free! To celebrate and thank his constituents for being disciplined, Barangay Chairman Louie Munoz decided to give his barangay a more “sosyal” relief packs with 2 kilos of honey rice and four cans each of Spam and Libby’s Vienna Sauces.

The post instantly went viral and a lot of netizens wished that they are living in the same barangay to receive the same relief packs. After all, each of these canned goods can cause as high as P160 per pack!

Unfortunately, the Barangay Chairman did not please everybody. There are also others who said they only distributed 338 relief packs and those only went to the families who did not receive any help from Mayor Joy Belmonte. Others also think that instead of buying more expensive canned goods, the budget should go to cheaper products so they can give to more families in need.

How about you, what do you think about this? Do you think the Barangay are gracious enough to give expensive relief goods or should they have bought cheaper ones?
