The Local Government Unit of Dapitan handed over their donations of bottled water for families affected by Typhoon Odette in Cebu City, Lapu-lapu City and Cebu Province.
Every LGU was given 2,245 gallons, each container containing 7-Litre of water.
10 families from Dapitan who work and had lived in Cebu were given cash assistance of 8,000.00 Php for them to rehabilitate their place.
Every family was also provided with a box of noodles and a sack of rice.
City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer, Engr. Nelson Quimiguing said Mayor Rosalina Jalosjos ascertained to donate potable water to the affected areas as the prices of bottled waters are very expensive.
For Dapitan, it is better to extend help rather than be among the victims of a calamity and have to wait for aid to arrive.
The LGU is gearing up to hand over its relief to the affected areas in Negros Oriental and Surigao del Norte.
