MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte, Jan 5 (PIA8) -- The city government of Maasin has been requested to allocate P100,000 cash assistance for tropical storm Sendong victims in a meeting held during the Maasin City Risk Reduction Disaster Management Council (MCRRDMC) gathering last January 3, 2012 at Sangguniang Panglungsod Hall, Maasin City.

According to City Disaster Response Team leader Ritche Sumalinog, the council recommended the allocation of financial assistance from the city government coffers to the cities of Cagayan De Oro and Iligan, both devastated by Sendong.

Earlier, Maasin City Mayor Maloney Samaco had asked for voluntary contribution among the city employees with cash assistance and used clothing.

As of press time, the collection among the city employees is still on going.

Meanwhile, the CDRRMC also tackled the one-year plan for the disaster council to work on the PP21,759,295.10 disaster funds this year, Sumalinog reported.

The P12,192,706.57 or 70 percent is intended for disaster preparedness that include CDRRMC seminars down to the barangay level; rescue, rehabilitation and medical equipments; evacuation drills; construction of evacuation center and other mitigating structures; trainings for rescue teams, he said.

And the 30 percent is intended for the quick response fund which include food and medicines, construction materials, fuel and equipment rental, among other miscellaneous expenses in time for disaster, in the amount of P9,566,588.53, he added. ### (PIA SoLeyte/esg)
