Rizal extends aid to typhoon ravaged provinces in the Visayas

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal, Nov 20 (PIA) –The provincial government of Rizal has approved recently two resolutions extending financial assistance to the provinces of Leyte and Samar which was hardly hit by Supertyphoon Yolanda.

Rizal Gov. Rebecca Ynares said the Sangguniang Panlalawigan passed two resolutions authorizing the local chief executive to use part of the provincial government’s savings from its subsidy to local government unit (LGU) account for humanitarian assistance to the devastated provinces.

“The people of Rizal are deeply saddened by the magnitude of destruction and casualty wrought by super typhoon Yolanda to our Filipino brothers and sisters in Leyte and nearby provinces recently. We are one with them in their sufferings and I hope that the country will be united in helping our people rebuild their lives,” Gov. Ynares remarked.

Gov. Ynares also urged other local chief executives in the province to initiate their own relief assistance to various LGUs affected by the super typhoon. The Rizal LGUs, private companies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), other civil society organizations (CSOs) and the academe, have heeded the call of the governor.

It can be recalled that Rizal suffered a similar fate during the onslaught of storm Ondoy in 2009 with nonstop rain that submerged the province, destroying billion pesos worth of properties, infrastructure, and several people perished. “We feel the pain and the agony of losing homes and loved ones, and we want to give them hope by extending our helping hands,” Gov. Ynares said.

In a statement posted in social media, Rizal Gov. Ynares appealed to constituents to forego their Christmas parties and instead, donate the intended budget to the victims of the syperthyphoon in the Visayas.

Earlier, the Rizal provincial government has also provided financial aid to the provincial governments of Bohol and Cebu after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake ravaged the two provinces and to the province of Nueva Ecija which was hit by a recent typhoon. (Rizal PIO/PIA-Rizal)
