San Carlos, Cadiz earmark P3.7M for typhoon-affected residents

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The city governments of San Carlos and Cadiz have allocated a total amount of P3.7 million to help typhoon-affected communities in 5th and 6th districts of Negros Occidental, despite also being victims of the typhoon.

An amount of P2.5 million was set aside and used by the city government of San Carlos in purchasing essential goods, for donation to local government units of Sipalay and Kabankalan cities, as well as municipalities of Cauayan, Ilog and Candoni, Charlen Pol Bistis-Anlap, an Administrative Officer 3 of San Carlos City Mayor’s Office said.

Anlap led volunteers of the San Carlos City government and private sector in delivering essential goods to Kabankalan City and Ilog on December 24, with each area receiving 120 boxes or 2,880 pcs of bottled water, 75 boxes or 7,500 cans of sardines, 85 pcs. of 5-gallon bottled water and 425 pcs. 1-liter bottled water.

The donations were received by former Rep. Mercedes Alvarez, Kabankalan City Mayor Pedro Zayco Jr. and Ilog Municipal Mayor John Paul Alvarez.

Anlap added that they are still waiting for more supplies for distribution to Sipalay City and Cauayan.

The donation of essential goods indicated that the people of San Carlos City can still extend help to LGUs with high number of casualties, although the city has not been spared also by the typhoon, Mayor Renato Gustilo said.

Gustilo added that it is his way of celebrating Christmas, by bringing hope to others and rising together despite the odds.

On the other hand, the Sanggunian Panlungsod of Cadiz City approved a resolution during its regular session on December 21, setting aside P1.2 million cash allocation to 12 typhoon- stricken areas of Negros Occidental.

The resolution allocated P100,000 each for Hinigaran, Binalbagan, Himamaylan City, La Castellana, Isabela, Moises Padilla, Candoni, Cauayan, Kabankalan City and Hinobaan. It was also appropriated P200,000 each for Ilog and Sipalay City.

Earlier, the Cadiz City government sent a team from its Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to help rescue operations in southern Negros after it was hit by Typhoon Odette.

Antique Rep. Loren Legarda also donated P200,000 cash assistance to the Kabankalan City government to help victims of Typhoon Odette.*
