President Rodrigo Duterte has instructed mayors and other officials to provide the immediate needs of the typhoon victims.

Duterte issued the remark last Friday during his visit to typhoon “Agaton” victims in Baybay City, Leyte.

“This is what I really came for, I just want to make you smile. I know what you’re going through, especially those who are wounded. It pains me, too. While I was conducting an aerial inspection earlier, Jalad told me that there’s a lot more,” the Chief Executive said in his speech.

“That’s why I can’t speak properly. It is up to your mayors and officials to see to it that the needs of everybody suffering right now is addressed, as well as the problems that are yet to be identified,” he added.

In Leyte, Duterte also handed out relief goods to the survivors and promised to continue providing food and shelter to all those affected.
