“Nothing is enough as of the moment for super typhoon Yolanda victims because not all the victims received the relief assistance,” Tanco said, pointing however, that the province is working hard to provide such.
Per record of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development of the province, all the 16 towns, including Roxas City were already given relief assistance, however, not all of the victims have received it.
On the other hand, Provincial Administrator lawyer Jose O. Villanueva said that they have already distributed the second wave of relief goods to seven towns in Capiz, namely Pilar, President Roxas, Maayon, Panitan, Dao, Sigma and Panay.
Villanueva said that the second round of relief goods for the remaining towns is being readied at the provincial capitol for immediate delivery.
“We wanted that as much as possible all the victims of typhoon Yolanda will be given relief assistance in order to mitigate their distress,” he said.
Villanueva said that the distribution of relief goods is now in the hands of the municipalities and barangays as the province only turns over the relief assistance to the local government units.
During the meeting of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, November 13, presided over by Gov. Tanco, the Department of Social Welfare and Development-Regional Office 6 representative disclosed that they were able to distribute 11,048 family packs of relief goods to the 16 towns and a city here, including the 962 packs of rice which were endorsed to the Capiz PSWD Office.
Earlier, Tanco reiterated his call to set aside politics this time of calamity as everybody has been affected by said super typhoon.
Tanco said that the calamity spared no one, hence assistance to every victim regardless of political affiliation must be given to ease their agony.
