Through the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office and the provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte visited the Municipality of Tangcal and conducted a relief operation for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) affected by the armed conflicts in the municipality.
A total of 410 families received food (10 kilos of rice and 10 cans of sardines0 and non-food items (mats, blankets, mosquito nets, towels, and kitchen utensils) from the PSWDO.
The PSWDO and PDRRMO head, Ms. Annabelle Mendez and Ms. Abeliza Manzano spearheaded the distribution with Tangkal Municipal Mayor Hon. Fatima Mutia Tomawis and the MDRRMO.
Mayor Tomawis is thankful to Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo for the quick response to the need of the people. Despite the challenges faced by the province, the Provincial Government remained truthful in delivering quality service.
Governor Angging, although unable to personally go to the affected municipality, expressed her deepest sympathies to the affected families. She hoped that with the help of the National Government agencies and the cooperation of the people, conflicts like this would never happen again. PIO-LDN
