LACSON TO PARTIDO REPORMA: FOCUS ON ‘ODETTE’ AID

As a clearer but grimmer picture emerges on the extent of the damage wrought by Typhoon Odette, Senator and presidential aspirant Panfilo Lacson directed various teams from his Partido Reporma, campaign volunteers, and even his own Senate staff to focus on helping the victims of the storm, his spokesman said.

Since December 18, simultaneous relief efforts have been undertaken by these teams in Cebu, Leyte and Siargao with additional volunteers joining to help in Southern Leyte, Negros Island, and Palawan, Partido Reporma spokesman Ashley Acedillo said. 

“Partido Reporma will also dispatch a Landing Craft Tanker (LCT) to ferry heavy equipment, housing materials, food, and water to various affected areas in Visayas and Mindanao.”

Through its alliance with LPGMA Party-List, Partido Reporma will also dispatch a Landing Craft Tanker (LCT) to ferry heavy equipment, housing materials, food, and water to various affected areas in Visayas and Mindanao in the next few days, Acedillo added.

Lacson, in a recent out-of-town engagement, called for a moment of silence for those who perished in the typhoon, which has reached 375 persons, according to the Philippine National Police.

“I prefer to work quietly to aid others without media fanfare.”

The former PNP chief once again stressed that he prefers to work quietly to aid others without media fanfare, which he believes negates the pure intentions and efforts of any would-be Good Samaritan. 

The veteran legislator reiterated this in Partido Reporma’s most recent “Online Kumustahan” dialogue in Lingayen City, Pangasinan with running mate Senate President Tito Sotto and the party’s senatorial candidates.

“Ang pagdamay ay pwedeng ipakita sa gawa – hindi lang sa pagsasalita kundi sa gawa. Ganoon ang dapat na pagdamay sa ating kapwa, sa ating kapwa Pilipino na kasalukuyang naghihirap,” he said in his speech.

The three-term senator’s presidential run is anchored on his long and vast experience as a soldier, a policeman, a legislator and a rehab czar, in the hope of offering the most effective solutions to the country’s myriad problems, which include solving the coronavirus pandemic, the looming huge national debt, poverty and loss of livelihoods, and other issues—built in more than 50 years as a public servant.
