Davao LGU extends help to displaced villagers in Calinan

May 9, 2017 By

Around 86 families fled outskirt areas of Barangay Dominga in Calinan district when government forces clashed with New People’s Army (NPA) rebels on Saturday.

Barangay Captain Ivy Marie Lumandas immediately sought assistance from City Mayor Sara Duterte for the basic needs of the evacuees.

The City Social Services and Development (CSSDO), said relief goods were immediately sent to the villagers who are temporarily sheltered at the Dominga Barangay Hall.

Maria Luisa Bermudo, chief of CSSDO, said social workers were also sent to the village on Tuesday to evaluate the needs of the families for individual release of food packs — expecting that the evacuees will stay out of their homes for several days. CIO
