DENR gives back to the people

by Lina D. Calvez

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, January 13 -- In the wake of the destruction brought by typhoon “Sendong,” the Department of Environment and Natural Resource (DENR), region 10, established an Operation/Relief Assistance Center at the regional office, here, to better facilitate relief operation for affected 249 personnel and other typhoon victims.

Regional Executive Director Corazon B. Galinato disclosed that the team serves as focal persons to manage and handle the receipt and distribution of incoming relief goods from the different Good Samaritans.

The team is composed of representatives from the offices of the Regional Technical Directors (RTDs) from the different sectors headed by the OIC-Chief of the Planning and Management Division.

The silver lining in all this is the ability of the Filipino people to band together and help the affected.

“I am thankful to DENR Secretary Ramon JP Paje for immediately responding to our call for assistance,” Director Galinato said.

She is also grateful to the other offices of DENR, the line bureaus and other regions for helping the affected employees and other victims of typhoon “Sendong” in Northern Mindanao.

Further, Dir. Galinato is grateful to the DENR partners like the Philippine Mining Safety and Environment Association whose members came and distributed relief goods, water containers and water.

Some of the materials which were donated by PENRO/CENRO Misamis Oriental were fabricated into coffins producing 100 coffins which were donated to the local government of Cagayan de Oro City.

The Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) in Iligan City was able to fabricate 20 coffins which were turned over to the local government of Iligan City.

The region also received 11 bundles of paper/cardboard caskets cardboard which were donated to the local government units (LGUs).

The CENR Office in Iligan City turned-over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DWSD), in the region, 879 pieces of confiscated lumber with a total volume of 559.51 cubic meters; and CENRO-Initao, Misamis Oriental has turned-over to DSWD a total of 22 pieces of confiscated lumber with a total volume of 8.39 cu. m.

DENR-10 as part of its commitment to help other typhoon victims also turned-over relief goods including rice and canned goods to the DSWD-10. (DENR/PIA-10)
