Negros Oriental to send more cash assistance to typhoon victims

by Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (15 October) -- Gov. Emilio C. Macias II has asked the Sangguniang Panlalawigan here for authority to send additional cash assistance to provinces ravaged by Typhoons "Ondoy" and "Peping."

The governor is seeking authority to charge some P500,000 from the provincial government's calamity fund as financial aid to the affected provinces of Pangasinan, Benguet and La Union.

Capitol Information Officer Adrian Sedillo said that of the total, Pangasinan will receive P300,000 and P100,000 each for Benguet and La Union provinces.

Once the governor's request is granted, this would bring to P1 million the total cash aid that the provincial government has sent to typhoon-affected areas, said Sedillo.

The governor has earlier extended P500,000 each to five local government units in Rizal province hardest hit by "Ondoy", namely: Cardona, Morong, Tanay, San Mateo and Cainta.

"The cash assistance is on top of the donations in kind that were extended by the province to the typhoon victims," said Sedillo.

Sedillo, in behalf of the provincial government, thanked Negrenses who donated clothings and other relief goods through the Capitol.

He said the Capitol continues to ask for donations which will be sent to the victims of "Ondoy" and "Peping" through the Department of Social Welfare and Development here. (PIA/rmn) [top]
