The city government of Pasig will donate P14 million to local government units (LGUs) affected by the two powerful earthquakes which struck Mindanao late last month.

Mayor Vico Sotto announced the donation in a Facebook post. He said the Sangguniang Panlungsod will approve the ordinance authorizing the donation in an emergency session Wednesday.

Pasig City will donate to the following LGUs with the corresponding amounts: In Davao Del Sur, Magsaysay (P2 million); Bansalan (P2 million) and Matanao (P1 million). In North Cotabato, Makilala (P3 million); Tulunan (P2 million); M’Lang (P2 million) and Kidapawan (P2 million).

Aside from providing financial assistance, Sotto said the Pasig city government will also donate relief goods to the earthquake victims.

He encouraged residents of Pasig to do their own share to help the areas affected by the earthquakes.
