Acting Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson together with Board Members Renato Malabor, Alain Gatuslao and Jose Benito Alsonso yesterday led the distribution of relief packs to families affected by the recent floods in La Carlota City and Isabela town.
Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Liane Garcia said they distributed more than 400 relief packs, a Capitol press release said.
Each pack contained three kilos of rice, noodles and canned-goods, it said.
The acting-governor assured the flood victims that the provincial government is doing its best to ensure their safety, the press release said.
Isabela Mayor Enrique Montilla III and La Carlota Vice Mayor Luis Jalandoni thanked the provincial government for the assistance and support given for their affected constituents.
Meanwhile, the Office of the Civil Defense through OCD Region VI Director Rosario Cabrera turned over 200 sacks of rice to the provincial government to augment the on-going relief operations for families affected by the flooding in the southern part of the province.
Lacson thanked the OCD, and said the assistance will aid the provincial government in the distribution of relief packs to the affected families.
Cabrera said the rice assistance, sourced from the OCD fund, is worth P250,000, the press release said.*
