Riding on a big bike, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Friday visited quake-affected areas in North Cotabato, extended aid, and vowed to send more.
Mayor Duterte, popularly known as “Inday Sara,” received updates from local government executives and met with displaced families.
She spoke with M’lang Mayor Russel Abonado and Vice Mayor Lito Piñol in front of the town hall at around noon and handed over the cash assistance from the people of Bohol.
Bohol Governor Art Yap turned over the cash donation to Duterte in Davao City on Thursday afternoon to extend aid to the victims including Boholanos who were also affected by the tremor.
Duterte visited Tulunan, M’lang, Kidapawan City and Makilala.
Meanwhile, the provincial government of Bohol through the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) announced that they are gathering donations to send to quake-hit residents in Mindanao, which has been battered by a series of strong earthquakes.
Those who want to help may bring donations at PDRRMO Command Center inside Camp Bernido in Tagbilaran City.
Donations may also be relayed through Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Offices across the province for those in the towns.
