A total of 2,368 residents of 17 barangays in Sipalay City, which was badly hit by typhoon Odette, got more help from the provincial government of Negros Occidental.

Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson led the distribution of housing materials, including corrugated GI and plain sheets and food assistance on Monday in Sipalay City. He was assisted by former Rep. Mercedes Alvarez-Lansang, Mayor Gina Montilla-Lizares and Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz, among other provincial government officials.

Lacson said the housing materials came from private donors, which was on top of P50 million worth of similar materials purchased by the provincial government that is expecting its delivery soon from its suppliers.

The Philippine National Police, Philippine Army, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Philippine Coast Guard also provided manpower in the hauling and distribution of assistance to typhoon victims.

Lacson and Diaz also received yesterday an additional 500 food packs from National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

The donated relief goods were immediately dispatched to the Provincial Relief Operations Center for scheduled distribution to typhoon victims in the province.*
