November 3, 2016 By

The chief of Davao City’s Central 911 was tasked by Mayor Inday Sara Duterte to deliver the cash assistance of the local government of Davao to survivors of the typhoon Lawin in Northern Luzon.

For 5 days, Emmanuel Jaldon distributed the P5 million financial help to areas devastated by Lawin in Cagayan Valley, Ilocos Norte, La Union, Apayao, and Kalinga.

Jaldon said that the visit was a success.

“The entire visit was a complete success,” he said. “They were all so grateful for the help of the city, they were happy for the assistance and that it was handed to them personally.”

Jaldon said the 5-day road trip allowed them to see the extent of the devastation.

“The most affected area was Tuguegarao. You can really see the effect of Lawin,” he said.

Jaldon’s team handed out P1.8 million to Cagayan valley, P900,000 to Ilocos Norte, P200,000 to La Union P150,000 to Apayao, P350,000 to Mountain Province and P1.6 million to Kalinga.

The team started traveling on October 26, a day after the approval of the city council for the P5 million cash assistance to the victims of Lawin. CIO
