No less than Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and Senator Richard “Dick” Gordon who will personally fly to Bohol to distribute relief and hand in cash assistance to Boholanos affected by typhoon Odette, on January 2.
The distribution happens after the PRC reset their initial schedule for the aid which was supposedly set for December 30, but was moved due to inavailability of ferry to Bohol, according to Edison Enroquez, PRC media relations pointperson, in a text message.
PRC Chairman Gordon would fly off from a press conference in Panglao, at 10 AM and leapfrog to Ubay andnthen to Loboc later.
While the PRC, which is among the country’s premier relief assistance groups, gets to Ubay which is among the worst-hit towns, it is also slated to get to tourism town of Loboc, where flooding caused by typboon Odette, sent people clambering to their rooftops to escape from being washed by the floods which has reached the second floor of houses.
It was not also immediately known if the relief and cash grant which the PRC brings can also be for other Odette victims not from Ubay amd Loboc.
In their earlier press release, the PRC was set to bring Chairman Gordon to Ubay after his meeting with the media in Panglao.
A few hours later, Chairman Gordon would continue PRCs relief and cash grant in Loboc.
Last December 30, the PRC also distributed relief goods in Inayawan, Dumlog Talisay City, Jagobiao, Mandaue City, Cebu. (PIABohol)
