Davao City to provide P1M to calamity-hit Ilocos Norte

The city government of Davao will extend P1-million assistance to typhoon-hit Ilocos Norte.

Davao City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) Operations and Warning head Rodrigo Bustillo said the City Council recently approved the financial aid.

“It has been an advocacy of the City Government of Davao to help other places that were affected by disasters. Since Ilocos Norte was affected by Typhoon Ineng, we extended financial aid to them,” he said.

Bustillo said it would be up to the provincial government of Ilocos Norte on how it would use the P1-million financial help.

Severe Tropical depression Ineng’s damage to Ilocos Norte amounted to over P1 billion.
