DSWD-Bicol prepares relief goods for affected Sorsogon towns

Arnel Garcia, DSWD Bicol regional director, on Wednesday said that as of now, they have distributed at least 300 dust masks to villagers of Bacolod, Buraburan, Sangkayon, Puting Sapa, Añog and Catanusan of Juban town – mostly affected by ash explosion.

Food packs will be distributed anytime upon request of concerned local government units of Irosin, Juban and Casiguran towns.

Each of these towns have 300,000 food packs, Garcia said.

Each food pack consists of six kilos of rice, 4 cans of sardines, 4 cans of corned beef, 6 packs of noodles and cereal drinks.

Garcia said the DSWD has adequate stockpile of commodities for 35,000 persons and standby funds for relief operations.

He assured that relief goods can meet the needs of affected families even for a long period of time.

“We will replenish the family food packs upon distribution. Just like what we did during Mayon Volcano eruptions. We are ready for prolonged relief operations, but of course, we are not asking for the disaster to be prolonged,” the DSWD official said. (PNA)
