Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez on Wednesday met with the family of caregiver Paul Castelvi, who was slain during the assault of the militant group Hamas in Israel, to extend his sympathies and deliver P500,000 in cash assistance.

At the same time, two separate teams from the Office of the Speaker and Tingog Party-list also delivered the same amount of cash aid to the families of caregivers Loreta Alacre of Negros Occidental and Angelyn Aguirre of Pangasinan, who were also killed during the Hamas attack in Israel.

Following confirmed reports of the death of the three OFWs in Israel, Romualdez had announced a joint personal donation with Tingog party-list Rep. Yedda Marie K. Romualdez to provide cash aid and other forms of assistance to the affected families.

“No amount of assistance can truly compensate for your loss, but we hope this small gesture will help assuage your grief and alleviate some of the financial burdens you are facing during this difficult time,” Romualdez told Castelvi’s family.

Romualdez was accompanied by Senior Deputy Speaker Aurelio Gonzales, Jr. and Pampanga Gov. Dennis Pineda on his visit.
