The Manila City government started the distribution of “Pamaskong Handog” Christmas boxes to residents Sunday, Dec. 5, in time for the holiday season.
Each Pamaskong Handog box contains one pack uncooked spaghetti noodles; one pack pasta sauce, five cans of corned beef, one canned tropical fruit cocktail, one canned condensed milk, and a box of cheese.
Some netizens also praised the distribution of christmas boxes on social media.
“Salamat po mayor may pag salo-salohan na po kami sa hapagkain. Ipagpatuloy niyo po ang mabuting hangarin sa mamamayan. God bless po!” one netizen said in a Facebook post.
Another one commented, “Napakaswerte ng Manileño may isang mayor na ganiyan!” (Cherrylin Caacbay)
