• Basilan fire victims get help


    COTABATO CITY, Maguindanao: The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Gov. Mujiv Hataman has ordered assistance to some 2,000 villagers dislocated by a fire on Saturday in Isabela City in Basilan through the Humanitarian Emergency Assistance and Response Team (HEART). More than 500 houses were razed by Saturday’s fire in Barangay Kaumpurnah, a seaside village in Isabela City.
    Almost all of the affected villagers are Muslims observing fasting in the holy month of Ramadan, according to Hataman. While Basilan is a component-province of the autonomous region, Isabela City, former capital of Basilan, is under the jurisdiction of Region 9. Hataman and his wife, Anak Mindanao Party-list Rep. Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman, distributed relief supplies to the fire victims on Monday, ahead of the HEART’s humanitarian mission.
