Pulong Duterte provides aid to typhoon victims
First Congressional District Communication and Information Office
DAVAO CITY – The office of the First Congressional District Representative Paolo “Pulong” Duterte distributed on March 15, Monday, 200 rice packs to flashflood victims in San Agustin town, Surigao del Sur province.
The rice packs were brought to the Young Women’s Christian Association in Barangay Otieza in San Agustin, and were distributed to 200 beneficiaries hit by the massive flooding caused by the tropical depression Auring.
Auring is the first typhoon to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) this year. Isolated flooding and rain-induced landslides were reported in Surigao del Sur and nearby areas caused by the typhoon last month.
Duterte’s office said the distribution of rice is a continuation of the relief efforts provided by the First Congressional District Office. The activity was carried out in strict compliance with the health and safety protocols against the coronavirus diseases.
