Gov Uy personally hands over assistance to nearly 18,000 flood-affected families in Cateel town

Davao Oriental Governor Niño Uy has personally distributed relief goods to flood-affected families in Cateel town.

More than 17,800 families received the assistance, which was one of the largest relief distributions conducted by the provincial government.

Joining the governor in handing over the aid Monday, February 5, were Cateel Mayor Emilou Nuñez, First District Board Member Nenette Palmera, local government and barangay officials, staff from the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, and Barangay Affairs Support Services Office, among others.

Uy assured the residents that everyone in the master list would receive aid, saying there was no political color in the distribution.

“Walay color-color ani. Walay gipili nato, tanan mahatagan, tanan makadawat kay tanan man ta nakabati og kalisod tungod sa mga kalamidad nga atong nasinati,” he said.

“Rest assured nga dili lang kini ang suporta nga ihatag sa probinsya. Importante atong panagtinabangay aron malampasan nato tanan nga mga pagsulay ug aron magmalampuson kita sa tanan natong pagpaningkamot,” the governor added.

Asside from the relief packs, the provincial government also provided Emergency Shelter Assistnce to the residents whose houses were partially or totally damaged by severe flooding due to the shearline.

Other barangays in Cateel would also receive assistance.
