The World Disaster Relief Organization based in South Korea, in partnership with the Korean Community Association in Cebu and the Philippine National Police Regional Office in Region 7, will conduct disaster relief operations for flood victims in Dumaguete and other parts of Negros Oriental today.
The distribution of relief items for the victims of tropical storm “Sendong” will be held in Batinguel, Bagacay, and Junob in Dumaguete City; and the towns of Valencia, Sibulan and Pamplona.
The relief goods, that do not include foodstuff, will be given to 1002 families who were pre-identified through the Department of Social Welfare and Development, as not all of the flood victims can be given the same.
Each family will receive a relief package consisting of a cooking pot, a frying pan, four-piece sets of plates, spoons, forks and glasses, blankets, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and used clothing, such as sweatshirts.
The recipients include 252 families from Dumaguete, 200 from Valencia, 200 from Sibulan and 350 families from Pamplona.
Charlie Shin of the Cebu Korean Community Association and Chief Supt. Marcelo Garbo, PNP Region 7 director, will head the distribution of relief goods, with Governor Roel Degamo and the mayors of the recipient-local government present.*JFP
