PIA Press Release

Negros Oriental accepts donations for "Ondoy" victims

By Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (1 October) -- The provincial government is accepting donations in cash and in kind for victims of tropical storm "Ondoy".

Local residents are encouraged to donate used clothing especially for children, canned goods, beddings and other items that can be used by victims of the tropical storm.

Donations will be received by the Community Affairs Office at the Capitol. Those who wish to donate can look for Fr. Francis Duran or Fe Calingacion, said Capitol Information Officer Adrian Sedillo.

Cash donations, on the other hand, will be placed in a special account by the Provincial Treasurer's Office to be deposited directly to institutions facilitating relief operations such as the Department of Social Welfare and Development, said Sedillo.

In line with this, Gov. Emilio C. Macias II has requested the Sangguniang Panlalawigan in its session today to appropriate P100,000 as the provincial government's contribution to relief operations being done for victims of Typhoon "Ondoy."

Sedillo said the provincial government has been providing cash donations to areas in the country devastated by calamities.

Meanwhile, answering the call of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, a total of 315 volunteers as of late Tuesday showed up at Kalayaan Hall in Malacaņang to repack and distribute relief goods for the victims of typhoon "Ondoy" under "Oplan Sagip Bayan."

According to Cookie Aydinan, Presidential Management Staff (PMS) chief of staff and overseer of the relief operations, a total of 3,000 relief packs were brought to Ever Gotesco in Quezon City, 1,000 packs to Taguig, 700 bags to the Tanay evacuation center, 500 bags to Montalban, and 600 bags to Taytay. About 1,000 bags were distributed in Malacanang.

Each bag consisted of food items such as rice, sardines, noodles and non-food items like clothes, towels, and blankets. (PIA/rmn) [top]
