Radaza met with the barangay captains on Dec. 31 to discuss the distribution of the assistance and tasked Association of Barangay Captains President Eddie Cuizon to divide the sacks of rice among the 19 barangays situated in the mainland of Lapu-Lapu.
Radaza said the P1 million will be used to purchase rice that will be given to the island barangays.
