Ayon sa mga mag-aaral, inspirasyon nila sa pagtulong sa kapwa ang adbokasiya ni Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon na “Ang pag-gawa ng mabuti ay hindi magbubunga ng masama”.

Pahayag ni Andrew, “Yung pagbo-volunteer lang po kahit isang tao mabibigyan… basta po nakatulong ako masaya po.”

“Salamat po sa Diyos, kasi in a little way maliit na bagay to.. di man ako makabigay ng pera wala man akong maibigay sa kanila at least yung pagtulong ko sa pag-rerepack… basta sobrang saya,” pahayag naman ni Rozen.

“Lagi po naming sasamantalahin na bawat pagkakataon na gagawin na gumawa ng mabuti sa kapwa  lalo na yung mga nasalanta.. kaya andito po kami ngayon tumutulong sa pagre-repack ng relief goods,” saad naman ni Gerlo Kevin Real.

Nagpapasalamat naman ang “Walang Iwanan” sa ginawang pagtulong ng mga estudyante ng La Verdad Christian College at mga miyembro ng Bread Society.

Patuloy rin itong humihikayat ng mga volunteer para tumulong sa repacking ng relief goods para sa ating mga kababayan sa Visayas.

“Pumunta po kayo dito sa DAR Gym… open pa po ang operation Walang Iwanan hangagang Sunday… ine-encourage po namin kayo na hapon pumunta hanggang gabi para makatulong po tayo sa paglo-load ng mga relief goods sa mga truck,” saad nito. (Ley Ann Lugod / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

DILG says 3 million Typhoon Yolanda-affected households benefit from P1.278-B projects

Yolanda housing units

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Wednesday said that close to three million households are benefiting from the P1.278-billion worth of repaired and rehabilitated municipal facilities across five regions affected by the Typhoon Yolanda in 2013.

DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said around 308 facilities were rehabilitated under the first batch of the department’s Recovery Assistance for Yolanda (RAY) program. Of the said number, 98 are civic centers, 103 municipal halls, 106 public markets, and one DILG Regional Field Office.

“With the completed municipal facilities, we are very optimistic that our new sets of municipal leaders in the Yolanda-affected areas can now provide normal government services to their constituents,” Año said.

To facilitate the return to normalcy of government services and economic activities in Yolanda-affected areas, the DILG said RAY Batch 1 covers the repair or rehabilitation of totally or partially damaged municipal facilities in Regions 4B, 5, 6, 7, and 8 that are located within the 50-kilometer radius of the typhoon’s path.

Of the 308 completed projects, seven are in MIMAROPA, one in Bicol Region, 127 in Western Visayas, 28 in Central Visayas, and 145 in Eastern Visayas.

“With RAY Batch 1 now 100% complete, the Department now shifts its focus in monitoring the on-going barangay facilities and other government projects under the RAY Batch 2 and 3A,” Año said.

The DILG chief also clarified they are only handling the repair of local government facilities and not the housing program as this is handled by other national government agencies.
