Ochoa enjoins public servants to support 'Bayanihan ng Bayan'

MANILA, Jan. 26 --Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr. encouraged on Thursday government officials and employees to promote and participate in the "Bayanihan ng Bayan" project of the administration to help rebuild lives of typhoon victims in Mindanao.

Ochoa issued Memorandum Circular No. 26 enjoining all public servants to support the Bayanihan ng Bayan from January 25 to 28 in Iligan City after Tropical Storm "Sendong" ravaged the area and Cagayan De Oro City over a month ago.

"The event aims to illustrate the collective response and various ways the Filipinos can help victims of the typhoon," Ochoa stated in the memorandum. "It also intends to gather commitments from all over the country to rebuild devastated areas in Northern Mindanao."

On Wednesday, President Benigno S. Aquino III visited the relocation sites in Iligan City and Cagayan De Oro City, and launched the shelter program for typhoon victims. The President also assured local government units of the national government's support as they rehabilitate areas affected by Sendong.

Memorandum Circular No. 26, signed on January 25, specifically orders officials and employees of all departments, bureaus and agencies of the national government, as well as government-owned and -controlled corporations to support and take part in the Bayanihan ng Bayan. (OES)
