Around 5,000 residents of Bayawan City and Sta. Catalina and Basay towns in southern Negros Oriental received relief goods from Dumaguete City, through its Social Welfare and Development Office recently.

SWDO officer-in-charge Carola Alquero and councilors Franklin Esmeña and Dan Leon led the team from the city government during the distribution of the relief aid Friday and Saturday for families and individuals displaced by the massive flooding, that had claimed six lives in October.

The donation was received by Sta. Catalina Mayor Nathaniel Electona, Vice Mayor Ruben Melodia and Sangguniang Bayan members Ryan Monte de Ramos, Dodong Abrasaldo, Ruben Tag-at, Joji Napigkit, Nilo Teves and Filemon Ibale.
