    VP Leni visits Mayon evacuees as OVP continues relief ops

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday visited several towns in Albay province as the continuing volcanic activity of Mount Mayon lead more residents to evacuation centers. VP Leni went to Bariw National High School in Camalig, Guinobatan East Central School in Guinobatan, and Ligao City Technical Vocational School in Ligao City, to personally look into the situation of the evacuees, and to turn over relief goods from her office. The trip comes amid the ongoing relief operations of the Office of the Vice President, which began deploying its staff in the province last week. As of Tuesday, the OVP has given P2.295 million-worth of assistance to Ligao, Guinobatan, Camalig, and Tabaco, which includes 4,100 food packs and 410 sacks of NFA rice. The office’s partners under its Angat Buhay program have also sent and pledged donations, including food, face masks, blankets, mats, and hygiene kits. The Vice President said her visit was also meant to assess the other pressing needs of the communities, amid the uncertainty over how long the residents will have to remain in evacuation centers. “May team tayong iiwan dito… para matingnan kung ano pa iyong pang-araw-araw na kailangan, para mabilis iyong coordination. Bukas iyong communication lines natin with the LGUs, with the provincial government, kaya madali din para sa amin malaman agad-agad kung ano iyong mga kailangan,” she said during her visit to Ligao. “[M]arami ding tumutulong na dumadaan sa atin. Ngayon mayroon tayong apat na LGUs na tinutulungan—Camalig, Guinobatan, Ligao, saka Tabaco. Pero ise-serve din natin lahat: iyong Malilipot, iyong Sto. Domingo, Daraga, saka Legazpi. Kailangan lang nating malaman kung ano talaga iyong specific na kailangan. Pinaka-identify natin sa mayors kung ano talaga iyong pinakakailangan. [H]opefully maging maayos na maayos iyong coordination,” she added. VP Leni also called for a long-term approach to calamities that hit Albay, including volcanic eruptions and strong typhoons. “[A]ng paniniwala natin dapat pag-isipan na iyong mas permanenteng tulong. Gaya ng Albay, parating dinadaanan ng sakuna, hindi lang dahil sa Mayon Volcano, pero iyong mga bagyo din. Mahirap kasi hanggang ngayon iyong mga evacuation centers nasa paaralan. Dahil nandito sila sa paaralan, hindi matutuloy iyong pasok ng mga estudyante. Kahit may temporary learning centers, siyempre [it] will not take the place of iyong regular na mga klase,” she said. “[S]iguro [kailangan nang] pag-aralan iyong mga madalas na i-declare na danger zones, at kung mayroon lang rin namang permanenteng lilipatan, baka puwedeng tingnan na [iyong paglipat sa mga residente] doon.”
