Brgy. Puting Sapa residents line up to receive food packs from AFI and the ABS-CBN News Public Service teamAbout 260 families received help in Sorsogon as ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. (AFI) made its way to the province after Mt. Bulusan’s steam-blast explosion earlier this month.
With the ABS-CBN News Public Service team, AFI delivered food packs, hygiene kits, water and vitamins to residents of Brgy. Puting Sapa in Juban, Sorsogon whose lives were disrupted as ash from the volcanic eruption covered homes and entire villages.
Additionally, farmers from Bucas Grande Island in Socorro, Surigao del Norte received home repair kits as they continue to recover from the destruction caused by super typhoon Odette more than five months ago.
“Ito ‘yung sitwasyon namin. Hindi pa rin stable. Hindi pa siya gaano ka-permanent ‘yung tirahan namin,” shared one of the recipients, Sha Harim Antegro, in a “TV Patrol” report.
Purok chairman Romero Henson Ajoc thanked ABS-CBN for extending help and delivering the construction materials even after the shutdown of its broadcast operations, including its regional stations.
“Kahit wala na sa ano [ere] ‘yung ABS-CBN pero patuloy pa rin ang kanilang pamamahagi. Maraming salamat,” he said.
