Gov't, LGUs to fast-track infra rehab

Manila (7 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said the national government will work closely with local government units on how best to speed up repair and reconstruction of infrastructures destroyed by typhoon "Ondoy".

The President made the assurance in an impromptu speech at the evacuation center in the Sta. Lucia High School in Barangay Sta. Lucia, Pasig City, where she distributed relief goods, medicine kits, and Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) cards to some 3,000 families from 30 barangays.

The President also told evacuees their PhilHealth cards can be used for free medical check-ups and hospitalization in any government hospital.

The President was accompanied by Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo, Mayor Robert Eusebio, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, Education Secretary Jesli Lapus, and Foreign Affairs Alberto Romulo.

From Pasig, the President motored to Alabang Elementary School in Barangay Alabang, Muntinlupa City and distributed relief goods to 681 families or 2,640 individuals.

Last Saturday (Oct. 3), the President also distributed relief goods to some 3,000 families in three barangays in Marilao, Bulacan as part of the national government's efforts to help "Ondoy" victims. (PIA) [top]
