Donations for Luzon Storm Victims Shipped by RDCC-13
Several PNP members of Police Regional Office 13 carried relief goods to the Regional Mobile Group vehicle ready to transport to Nasipit port.
Police Regional Director Lino Calingasan formally turned over to OCD the truckloads of relief goods collected from different city and provincial PNP stations in the region after the traditional flag raising ceremony at Camp Rafael Rodriguez here in Butuan City on October 19.
The Police Regional 13 is the depository of all donations that the Regional Coordinating Council is soliciting to help victims of typhoon Ondoy who was devastated by massive flooding in Metro Manila last September 26.
In her speech, OCD Regional Director Blanche Gubenchiong said, “In the OCD’s mission areas of risk identification and vulnerability assessment, civil protection and preparedness, coordination for response, operations and rehabilitation initiatives, the Filipino indeed has shown many virtues in spontaneous response.”
Special mention was the PNP that according to RD Gubenchiong, has always risen above expectations.
And in all efforts of the Regional Disaster Coordinating Council and the OCD, the PNP was always ready to assist in community work.
The relief goods and donations for the typhoon and flood victims in Luzon were right away transported to Nasipit port for shipment to the National Disaster Coordinating Council in Manila.
