Tulong sa pagbangon: Toby Tiangco turns over P500K toquake-hit Cotabato town


The city government of Navotas doesn’t hesitate to help other local government units in need, whether they are in Metro Manila or other parts of the country.

Mayor Toby Tiangco recently turned over P500,000 in financial assistance to Mayor Reuel Limbungan and other local officials of Tulunan, Cotabato.

Tulunan was hit with magnitude 6.6 and 6.5 earthquakes last year, causing major destruction to properties and affecting a thousand families.

Last week, Navotas donated 1,600 hygiene kits, P300,000 worth of medicines, and 300 sacks of rice for evacuees in Batangas City and Trece Martires who were affected by Taal Volcano’s unrest.

The hygiene kit, which was placed in a pail, included toothbrush and toothpaste, sanitary napkins, shampoo with conditioner, bath soaps and undergarments.

“We thank our employees for volunteering to prepare and pack the relief goods. We also thank Navoteños and all those who brought their donations for Taal evacuees,” Tiangco said.
