    Georgina Hernandez on the Relief Efforts in Bicol

    26 December 2016

    Our sympathies to the families who spent their Christmas in evacuation centers due to Tropical Storm Nina. But we have faith in their resilience borne from many previous experiences.

    Vice President Leni Robredo has been monitoring and directing the Office of the Vice President to work with regional officials and agencies in setting up local relief centers for immediate emergency response on the ground.

    The OVP is also coordinating with the Angat Buhay partners and other private sector groups in Manila for donations, both food and non-food items that can be transported and deployed to Bicol.

    Furthermore, the Vice President has been in constant communication with her team since Friday. She has also deployed a team in Bicol to assist local relief operations.

    The Vice President travelled for a family reunion to the United States for the break, which was planned more than a year ago. She will be going home to Naga as soon as she arrives.

    While we have faith in the resilience of our people, we still call on the Filipino public to help out in the on going relief efforts of all agencies and private sector partners to alleviate suffering in typhoon-hit areas during this very special time of the year.

    In the spirit of Christmas, let us give hope to many of our brothers and sisters and enable them to bounce back faster from this latest trial in their lives.
