Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco responded to the call for help of a local official from Mabini, Batangas as the town struggles to get back on its feet after the recent spate of strong typhoons which battered Luzon.

Tiangco ordered 100 sacks of rice in 50-kilo packaging to be sent to Mabini, Batangas. The sacks were transported in a truck.

The relief operation was made after Mabini’s Municipal Administrator, Atty. Gerville R. Luistro, asked Navotas for help.

“Though our city is still grappling with the effects of the pandemic, we still fare better compared to others. For this, we are thankful and we want to help those in need as much as we can,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

Earlier, Navotas sent food packs containing rice, canned goods, instant coffee, instant noodles, and bottled water; mats and blankets, and other items to Cagayan, which was badly hit by Typhoon Ulysses.
