Relief bags, food packs and hot meals have been delivered to typhoon Rolly survivors by Sagip Kapamilya and its partners and donorsABS-CBN Foundation Inc.’s (AFI) Sagip Kapamilya has gone to different provinces hit by typhoon Rolly to bring comfort to families with food and relief packs.
Through the support of donors and partners, 1,000 food packs have been brought to Brgy. Puro and Peñaranda in Legazpi, Albay while 533 families received relief bags in Brgy. Gapo in Camalig, Albay.
Sagip Kapamilya has also visited Brgy. Travesia in Guinobatan, Albay to distribute food packs to 265 families that evacuated at Travesia Elementary School and to turn over medicines to the barangay health center.
Aside from areas in the Bicol region including Catanduanes, Sagip Kapamilya has conducted relief operations in Southern Tagalog.
In Aurora, 494 families were given food packs while 1,990 individuals received hot meals. Even before Rolly made landfall, Sagip Kapamilya was already there to provide food to evacuees. It is also bound for Batangas and Oriental Mindoro.
As families are expected to stay longer in evacuation centers while they rebuild their homes, more donations are needed to support them.
Jen Santos, AFI director for operations, told ABS-CBN News that many people have shown interest to help and donate.
“Marami talaga ang nagpapaabot (ng donasyon) … marami talaga ang nagpapaabot [atnagsabi] na ‘Kami rin, gusto naming tumulong, paano kami makakatulong?”
She said they are missing the presence of ABS-CBN Regional, which had its last day on Aug. 31 due to the nonrenewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise to broadcast. Santos said that it is usually the staff from the regional stations that are first to respond to affected areas to distribute relief goods.
