Vice President Leni Robredo on Tuesday, December 28, visited the communities in the coastal town of Tubigon, Bohol, one of the hardest hit provinces of super typhoon “Odette”.
Despite the inclement weather, VP Leni, together with Cong. Ed Chatto, Mayor William Hao, and other local officials, inspected the extent of the damage brought by the typhoon and discussed the rehabilitation and recovery efforts for the communities. VP Leni also heard from the residents and barangay officials themselves their ordeal.
Odette’s strong winds and heavy rains left the communities unrecognizable. Homes were flattened and there were debris all over. Boats were also washed ashore.
“Families are still struggling to pick up the pieces and need a lot of help to rebuild their lives,” VP Leni wrote on Facebook where she also shared photos from Tubigon.
VP Leni shared relief goods with the affected families and vowed to provide housing materials to help the families rebuild their homes.
