Solon to donate land to disaster-affected families in Sarangani

by CT Apelacio

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Jan 5 (PIA) -- Sarangani Cong. Pacquiao is donating land to affected families in Glan affected by the disaster last year.

Pacquiao’s public information officer Rose Tamayo said the congressman bought two hectares of land for the “180 families in Tango, Glan who have been affected last year by disaster.”

Barangany Tango has been touted to be the childhood hometown of the world boxing icon before his entire family settled in General Santos City.

Tamayo said Pacquiao bought the two hectares of land using his own money aside from the 1.5 hectares he had already bought for the “relocation site” of a number of vulnerable families in the province.

Sarangani Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Buenaventura Solarte said though he was not privy to the buying of land, he applauds the congressman’s move describing it a big help to the would-be beneficiaries.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao was also set today to distribute two units of computers with printers to Tango Elementary School.

Tamayo said the congressman immediately decided after learning that the Principal’s office has no computer sets at its own disposal. The school has also no available water supply so “the congressman will also be giving out water pumps.”

In addition, Tamayo said Pacquiao will also be giving away incentives to at least 17 teachers in the same school. (CTA/PIA General Santos City)
