Bulacan sends relief goods to Taal Volcano eruption victims

 

More than 20,000 packs of relief goods are set to be delivered to victims of the eruption of Taal Volcano in Batangas province.

Bulacan Gov. Daniel Fernando on Wednesday led his fellow officials in delivering 5,000 of the packed relief goods containing rice, canned goods, coffee, noodles, towels and clothes, and in donating P1 million to the provincial capitol of Batangas.

The relief goods were donated by various barangay (villages), municipalities and cities, the police, nongovernment organizations and private sector groups from Bulacan.



Fernando said the aid was the Bulakenyos’ way of giving back because when the province was devastated by Typhoon “Ondoy” (international name: “Ketsana”) in 2009, Batangas was among the first ones to lend their helping hand to Bulacan.

Batangas Gov. Hermilando Mandanas thanked the Bulakenyos for the support, adding that seeing Filipino’s concern for the Batangueños boosts their people’s confidence.

“Nagpapalakas ng loob namin na tayo’y nagkakaisa, kaya naman hindi sila [mga nasalanta] dapat mawalan ng pag-asa (The show of unity strengthens us; that is why they [Taal victims] should not lose hope),” the Batangas governor said.
