Typhoon Emong victims get fund assistance

Dagupan City (24 June) -- The provincial government of Pangasinan under Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr, extended financial assistance to the victims of typhoon "Emong" in a simple ceremony yesterday at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center gym in Lingayen.

"Kami po ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa ating gobernador sa kanyang taos-pusong pagtulong. Nang dahil po sa kanya, kami ay makapagsisimula ulit," Glenda Aspa, mother of three children from Anda who drowned during the wrath of typhoon "Emong" last May, said on behalf of all the beneficiaries.

Espino, in his speech, recalled how they rushed to the towns greatly devastated by the typhoon and saw for himself the damage it caused. "Naramdaman po natin kung ano ang hapdi, sakit at kalungkutan na namayani sa bawat isa na nasugatan, namatayan at nawalan ng bahay," he said.

"Ako po, sampu ng aking pamilya at ang buong provincial government, ay nakikiramay sa inyong lahat," the governor said at the end of his speech.

Meanwhile, Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council (PDCC) Executive Officer Paterno Orduņa pointed out the lessons learned from the tragedy. "Hindi po natin ninanais na magkaroon tayo ng mga kalamidad ngunit sadyang dumaraan po ang mga iyan kaya muli't muli ay nananawagan kami ng ibayong pag-iingat. Makinig po tayo sa mga tagubilin ng ating pamahalaan at mga otoridad pag may mga kalamidad na dumarating upang maiwasan natin ang disgrasya," he said.

On the other hand, Mayor Ruperto Martinez of Infanta also thanked the governor and the PDCC for facilitating the return of the fishermen from his town who got lost in the sea during the typhoon and extending financial and transportation assistance to them.

There were 44 persons from the towns of Agno, Bani, Malasiqui, Bolinao, Infanta, Lingayen, Mabini, Sta. Barbara and Alaminos City who lost their lives mostly from drowning and getting hit by falling debris. Their immediate families or relatives received P10,000 from the provincial government.
