48 families in Pasil gets second tranche of assistance from Kalinga LGU

Pasil, Kalinga – The 48 families of Sitio Yogyog, Pugong, Pasil who were heavily affected during the onslaught of Typhoon Rosita in 2018 received on March 23, 2022 their second tranche of almost P1 million worth financial aid from the provincial government of Kalinga under the Tubban Administration.

The families who were forced to be relocated due to a landslide caused by the said typhoon got the first tranche, amounting to P10,000 each from Kalinga PLGU on January 12, 2022.

Governor Ferdinand Tubban along with Provincial Social Welfare Development Officer Rosemaritez Oyawon handed over the same amount on Wednesday to the families.

Pasil Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer Marlyn Pagutayao earlier explained that the cash aid shall be used by the recipients to pay for the land where they currently occupy.

This, she stated, is for the 48 families to legally own the relocation site.

According to Pagutayao, the fund was made available since the time of the previous administration, although the process was delayed because the title of the project then was ‘Procurement of Relocation Site’ which, she said, was difficult to be processed.

Later, the municipality and the province joined forces to do something for the release of the assistance.

“Ti problema gamin, ti project title ket ‘Procurement of Relocation Site’ su a narigat ti process na ket nadel-delay tattan binaliwan da recently ti project title from procurement to financial assistance,” stated the MDRRMO.

It can be recalled that no life was sacrificed when the massive landslide that destroyed houses happened. This was largely due to the quick responses of the MDRRMO and the direction of Mayor Alfredo 'Chao-ig' Malannag.

Malannag welcomed the developments and was delighted that the Kalinga PLGU came to provide the second tranche of assistance.

Meantime, Governor Tubban assured that the provincial government has been implementing mitigation programs and projects to avoid such occurrence in the entire province.

The Office of the PSWD is likewise helping the disaster affected families in terms of their psychological recovery.
