Provincial Government of Bulacan

More donations arrive in Bulacan Capitol for the victims of typhoon “Lawin”

CITY OF MALOLOS – The Provincial Government of Bulacan headed by Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado has called on Bulakenyos to extend a helping hand in the last day of donation for the victims of the super typhoon “Lawin” as it is set to send medical and relief teams and Bulakenyo volunteers to highly devastated places of Cagayan and Isabela this coming November 10-11, 2016.

“This is part of our ways of giving back to the needy. When Bulacan was under that kind of situation, we also received help from our brothers and sisters in other provinces. This way, we can help a devastated community to recover again,” Alvarado said.

As of 9:00am today, the PGB has already collected cash donations amounting to P1,811,009 and goods including 86 boxes of noodles, 117 boxes of canned goods, four boxes of bottled water and coffee, 431 sacks of rice and one box of hygiene kit, which are all intended for victims of the said typhoon.

Alvarado said that the PGB will dispatch two Tulong Bulakenyo Teams for each province, which are both composed of doctors, engineers and volunteers that will conduct the two-day medical mission and relief goods distribution.

The governor also said that the mission was already coordinated with the local government units of the provinces of Isabela and Cagayan to ensure an organized provision of help and assistance to the victims as well as to anticipate other concerns and aid needed in the said areas.

This is the second time that the province of Bulacan will conduct such mission.

When Yolanda hit Eastern Visayas in 2013, Bulacan has also sent a 100-man team composed of relief and medical teams to distribute relief goods and give medical assistance to the victims of the typhoon.

The PGB has also donated P2.5 million to different municipalities of Samar to aid in the rehabilitation of the devastated communities in the said province, which also suffered the wrath of a super typhoon aside from Tacloban and other parts of the Eastern Visayas.
