CITY OF MALOLOS- One week after southwest monsoon rains enhanced by typhoon “Fabian” and leaving the province with 89,814,488.98 worth of damages in agriculture, P65,250,000.00 in infrastructure and 294,800.00 in livestocks, the Provincial Government of Bulacan begins rehabilitation plans.
Governor Daniel R. Fernando said that each concerned department of the reported damages has also submitted rehabilitation plans on how the province will be able to recover from the losses and give assistance to affected Bulakenyos.
“As soon as na-consolidate natin ‘yung mga impormasyon na ‘to, nagsimula na tayong pag-aralan kung anong pwedeng gawin ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan para makatulong sa mga naapektuhan ng bagyo. Hindi pa nga tayo natatapos sa ASF, sa mga peste sa palay, sa COVID-19, eto po nadagdagan na naman ang pasanin ng mga mamamayan,” Fernando shared.
The provincial chief executive also said that though the province is continuously hit with different calamities, the Bulakenyos’ resiliency cannot be shaken.
“Sabay-sabay ang dagok, but our ability to bounce back is also amazingly seen during these times. Huwag po kayong mag-alala, kami po sa pamahalaan ay gumagawa ng mga hakbang para mas mabilis tayong makaahon,” Fernando added.
Meanwhile, the PGB has already distributed food packs to more than 20,000 Bulakenyo families affected by Fabian. ###
