“We should do our part in protecting the environment”-Pasil Mayor Malannag Jr. to residents

Pasil, Kalinga – Mayor Alfredo “Chao-ig” Malannag Jr. on Wednesday, January 12, urged his constituents to take an active part in protecting the environment in order to prevent the adverse effects of natural disasters and calamities.

Malannag reiterated his environmental campaign during the awarding of the first tranche of almost P1 million financial assistance from the provincial local government unit of Kalinga led by Governor Ferdinand Tubban to the 48 families who lost their houses due to landslide in Sitio Yogyog, Pugong, Pasil back in 2018.

“May the incident caused realization among us to do our part in protecting the environment as we are not stable yet,” stressed the mayor in his message.

As he recalled how ‘tensed up’ their ocular inspection to the area was, Malannag expressed hope that such an incident will no longer happen as such disaster causes loss of livelihood, destruction of property, and even death.

Preventive measures

The mayor called for the community to stop cutting down trees since this will also affect nearby municipalities such as the City of Tabuk. He underscored that trees are essential in reducing air pollution and erosions.

Malannag further highlighted the Slow Food program that his administration has been supporting as a mitigating measure. The practice of slow food promotes the preservation of local food culture and traditional cooking, therefore avoiding the use of chemicals that could damage the environment.

Appreciation for donations

The mayor expressed his gratitude to the provincial government, including the previous donors, for extending their help and support to the landslide victims.

With the additional financial assistance from the province, the victims would soon be able to settle the cost of relocation sites and legally own the lots.
