“Nihatag dayon kita og food assistance sa mga residenteng apektado diha sa Barangay Salvacion. Tungod aning ulan na atong nasinati sa tibuok probinsiya sa Davao del Norte.

“Nisaka ang tubig sa pipila ka suba ug water tributaries apil na diha ang tubig gikan sa bukid. Mao kining ang hinungdan nganong pipila ka purok sa maong barangay ang nabahaan,” Mayor Ernesto Evangelista said.

He thanked Barangay Salvacion Punong Barangay Ronald Galo for the prompt response in preparing the list of the affected families who will be receiving the food assistance.

Municipal Administrator Atty. Elisa Evangelista-Lapina likewise praised Galo for the fast coordination it had with the Santo Tomas LGU especially in the context of providing assistance to the families affected by the disasters and specifically to address the urgent needs of the affected communities.

Lapina said the Santo Tomas LGU is in constant coordination with the Barangay Local Government Units to deliver much-needed goods and services to the displaced.

They formed part of an assessment team to find out how many families are being affected by the massive flooding or any eventual disasters that may strike.

“Sa panahon kalamidad labi na sa hisgutanang baha, dako ang papel sa Barangay Kapitan para mailhan nato kinsa ang mga pamilya ang mahatagan og food assistance. Dako ilang papel sa pagmonitor sa ilahang komunidad para mahibal-an nato sa LGU kung kinsa ang mahatagan og hinabang,” Lapina said.
