2,876 families receive relief goods from Provincial Government

The Municipality of Rosario, La Paz and Talacogon in the province of Agusan del Sur were severely affected by heavy rains in the last week of Dec. 2011. Agusan River overflowed and covered cornfields, vegetable gardens, school buildings, social halls, barangay offices and residences. Though some houses are floating, still fishing which is their main source of income became hard due to continuous heavy rains.

A team, headed by Gov. Adolph Edward G. Plaza, represented by Vice Gov. Santiago B. Cane, Jr., in partnership with the Constituency Offices of Cong. Maria Valentina G. Plaza of District 1 and Cong. Evelyn Plaza-Mellana of District 2 and in coordination with the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, Barangay Cultural Commnunity Affairs Unit, Municipal Local Government Units and Philippine National Police distributed relief goods and medicines to Novele, Cabawan, and Tagbayagan of Rosario; Sabang Adgawan of  La Paz;  Sabang Gibong, Maharlika, La Flora and Buena Gracia of Talacogon.

The 2, 876 families expressed their gratitude for being cared for despite an almost 2- hour travel by boat just to reach them.  “Dako ang among kalipay nga nia mo. Karon sigurado na nga kada pamilya adunay makaon sa pagsugat sa bag-ong tuig. Daghan kaayong salamat”. Brgy Captain Calimpusan of Sabang Adgawan tearfully said.

The last batch of distribution was done on Dec, 31, 2011, few hours before New Year celebration.
