Three barangays in San Pedro, Laguna, were severely affected and brought to evacuation sites when back-to-back Typhoons Jolina and Kiko hit the country.
When Ang Probinsyano Party-list (APPL) Rep. Alfred Delos Santos heard that refugees had already reached 150. He approached San Pedro, Laguna Councilor Aaron Cataquiz.
Rep. Delos Santos promptly had his staff prepare 350 food packs that he personally brought to the Rosario Complex evacuation center to immediately deliver them to Councilor Cataquiz for orderly distribution last Saturday, September 11, 2021.
“Inaasahan po namin na ang mga nasalanta ng Bagyong Jolina at Kiko, dito sa San Pedro, Laguna ay makakabangon agad sa pagsubok na ito, sa tulong po ng mga lokal na pamahalaan. Ang Alagang Probinsyano naman po ay nasa likod lang para tumugon sa pangangailangan ng mga LGUs ” Rep. Delos Santos remarked.
Coun. Cataquiz was grateful for APPL’s prompt response: “Blessing ang pagdating ng Ang Probinsyano Party List sa pangunguna ni Cong. Alfred Delos Santos dito sa San Pedro, Laguna.
Malaking tulong sa mga evacuues ng bagyong Jolina at Covid affected families ng ilang barangay ang foodpacks na naibigay sa kanila”.
“Alagang Probinsyano” has been a long-running program of APPL to assist and aid all provinces in the country.
These could be in the form of food packs, Balik-probinsya programs, health care services, educational assistance, job assistance, livelihood projects, and even infrastructure projects.
For any help requests, LGUs in the provinces are welcome to contact the official Facebook pages of Ang Probinsyano Party-list or Representative Alfred Delos Santos.
