Polangui, Albay—The Angeles City government has turned over 4,000 packs of relief goods worth P2 million to this town over the weekend.
Polangui Mayor Andy Mariscotes and Board Member Pem Imperial received the goods from the Angeles City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and City Social Welfare and Development Office.
Despite heavy rains and mechanical problems, the team pushed through to deliver the city’s food assistance to the residents of heavily typhoon-hit Barangays Alomon, Balangibang, and Kinale.
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. said it is important to help Filipinos in need including those from other regions.
“Habang pina-prioritize natin ang kapakanan at kaligtasan ng mga Angelenos sa tuwing may kalamidad tulad ng bagyo, bukas at handa rin tayo sa pagtulong sa mga kababayan natin mula sa ibang lugar,” the mayor said.
On November 19, the city government also sent 4,000 relief packs worth P2 million to the residents of Cagayan and Isabela affected by typhoon Ulysses.
Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel also gave their own personal donation for the typhoon victims in Cagayan and Isabela, and Albay.
