Senator Sonny Angara has sent relief goods to residents of Camarines Sur and Albay provinces in the wake of landslides and flooding in Bicol region that hit before New Year’s Day.
Angara’s office handed over 7,000 relief packs to concerned local officials for distribution to victims of the landslides and flooding triggered by Tropical Depression “Usman.”
“Lahat tayo ay may obligasyon na alagaan ang isa’t isa lalo na ang mga nasalanta at nawalan ng tirahan at mahal sa buhay dahil sa kalamidad,” the seasoned legislator said.
Heavy rains from “Usman” triggered flashfloods and landslides that left at least 120 people dead in Bicol.
The veteran lawmaker said it was unfortunate that the tragedy happened just as everyone was ready to welcome the New Year.
