RAFI extends P6M worth of food packs for NegOr

DUMAGUETE CITY, Negros Oriental, Feb. 2 (PIA) -- The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) based in Cebu has extended its relief food packs assistance worth P6 million to badly hit households affected by typhoon Odette in Negros Oriental.

RAFI Team Head John Rivera said a total of 10,036 households received their relief packs in 10 municipalities and cities in the province.

Rivera thanked Gov. Roel Degamo for lending some dump trucks to be used for distributing the food packs to Bais City, Mabinay, Manjuyod, Bindoy, Tayasan, Jimalalud, La Libertad, Guihulngan City, Mabinay, and Basay.

Each food pack contains five kilos of rice, five cans of sardines and corned beef, eight packs of three noodles, one dozen of coffee sachets, and seven liters of water worth P600 each pack.

In its statement, RAFI said the spirit of volunteerism is alive in the face of a crisis, as it steps up to help communities from the COVID-19 pandemic to the typhoon Odette disaster response.

“Our collective efforts have made positive changes for our fellow Filipinios in need. This act of one’s free will is heroism in its sincere form,” it stated.

With all this, RAFI has called for donations for its three-phase humanitarian relief operations for Odette-stricken communities.

The foundation is continuously distributing relief packs to Cebu, Bohol, Southern Leyte, and Negros Occidental

Upon its completion, psychosocial support and emergency shelter kits will be provided to affected areas. (JCT/PIA7 Negros Oriental)
