Paranaque City provided food packs to 140 construction workers who were stranded for two months in a condominium project amid the imposition of the enhanced community quarantine.

Personnel from the city mayor’s office personally handed the assorted canned goods, sacks of rice, bottled water, and sacks of onions to the construction workers who were begging foods since March 17.

Aside from being stranded, the construction workers, mostly from Visayas and Mindanao, were abandoned by their employer and were only given small amount of cash.

Without money for their daily sustenance, they resorted to begging on the streets.

Some of the workers even reportedly climbed fruit trees near the construction site just to ease their hunger pangs.

The workers said that they could not return to their respective provinces as they do not have money for the fare.

The workers claimed that they were not given aid from the social amelioration program because all of them are not residents of the barangay.

The stranded workers thanked the city officials led by Mayor Edwin Olivarez who promised the workers that the city government will be extending help until the lifting of the ECQ next week.
