Gov. Padaca urges Isabelinos to help victims of typhoon "Ondoy" in Metro Manila

Ilagan, Isabela (6 October) -- Three days after Ondoy left the country, the lady chief executive of this province urged Isabelinos to donate in cash or in kind for the victims of typhoon "Ondoy" that greatly affected Metro Manila residents last Saturday.

Governor Ma. Gracia Cielo M. Padaca made the call after seeing the situation in Metro Manila through monitoring reports from National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) that most of Ondoy's victims needed immediate relief in the evacuation centers.

Padaca urged businessmen and private citizens to bring their donations to the provincial capitol as its designated receiving area until Friday (October 2) and the donations will be hauled by the provincial government vehicles to concerned government agencies or private organizations which are conducting relief operations.

The provincial government has pledged to donate P100,000 each to ABS-CBN Foundation, Incorporated and GMA Kapuso Foundation based in Metro Manila.

Employees of the provincial government has started donating used clothings to the flood victims of Ondoy and expected that Padaca's call will be heard and responded to by kind-hearted Isabelinos.

The provincial government will also send trained relief and rescue team to Metro Manila to help other rescue units operating in the still flooded areas in the Metroplis.

Ondoy brought heavy rains in Metro Manila last Saturday bringing flash floods to most areas in Metro Manila that destroyed hundreds of lives and more than 2 billion pesos of properties.

President Arroyo has declared twenty six provinces including Metro Manila under State of Calamity last Monday. (PIA Isabela) [top]
