Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Dela Cruz Quibranza, along with the officials of the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte, on Wednesday, January 11, 2022, visited Misamis Occidental to give cash assistance to seven (7) shearline most affected municipalities by the recent heavy flooding in the area.
Misamis Occidental Governor Henry S. Oaminal, along with the mayors of the municipalities warmly welcomed Governor Angging at the Provincial Capitol of Misamis Occidental. Mayors of the recipients of the cash assistance, namely, Oroquieta City, Lopez Jaena, Aloran, Sinacaban, Tudela, Clarin, and Jimenez, Misamis Occidental, expressed their sincerest thanks to the Lanao del Norte Governor and now Regional Development Council X Chairperson.
“We are so sorry about what happened in your municipalities. I know how traumatic it is for your constituents to experience such wrath from nature. This is the result of climate change and it is the act of mankind,” Governor Angging said.
The RDC Chair also said that it is her moral duty to be of service to her neighboring province during this time of adversity. She also hoped that with the small amount, the cash assistance will help those residents who are greatly affected by the trough of LPA.
The cash assistance was funded under the 5% Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Fund ( LDRRMF) of the Provincial Government. PIO-LDN
