More funds to help typhoon victims are coming, says Occidental Mindoro Vice Gov. Peter Alfaro
As Occidental Mindoro struggles from the effects of typhoon Tisoy and Ursula, Vice Gov. Peter Alfaro shared some good news heading into the new year.
In a Facebook post, Alfaro said the Sangguniang Panlalawigan has extended the declaration of the state of calamity over the province for six months.
This would allow the province to use its calamity fund to restore damage infrastructure and properties.
There was also a need to ensure the welfare, security and serenity of those affected, said Alfaro.
Occidental Mindoro will begin the new year by getting back on its feet!
“The state of calamity declared by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan was extended due to the grave damages caused by TD Tisoy and Ursula. The Provincial Government of Occidental Mindoro sought for the emergency to be extended because the province is still dealing with the grave consequences of the two disasters and that there is still a need to ensure the welfare, security and serenity of those effected,” Alfaro posted.
