COTABATO CITY — Around 350 Muslim families from Barangays Tumana and Barangka in Marikina City who were greatly affected by typhoon Ulysses received last November 14, 2020 relief packs from the Offices of Members of Parliament Atty. Maisara C. Damdamun-Latiph and Diamila Disimban Ramos.
The Lady Members of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority (BTA) Parliament spearheaded the conduct of relief operations in response to the needs of the Bangsamoro families from outside the core territory who were victims of the recent typhoon that hit our country.
Each relief pack contains one (1) blanket, one (1) magic pillow, three (3) kilos of rice, 3 bottles of 500 ml mineral water, three (3) cans of sardines, three (3) cans of tuna flakes, three (3) packs of noodles, three (3) packs of pancit canton, one (1) pack of cupcakes, six (6) packs of 3 in 1 coffee, three (3) packs of powdered milk, 1/2 kg of brown sugar, one (1) box of face mask (50 pcs), five (5) pieces of face shields, one (1) 250 ml alcohol, one (1) pack of sanitary pad, one (1) laundry bar, four (4) pieces of laundry powder, one (1) dipper and one (1) pale.
MP Damdamun-Latiph stressed it’s a big challenge for the flood victims to face this kind of tragedy because the typhoon occurred in the midst of a pandemic.
“Although the situation of some people is heart-breaking, you can still see the smile on their faces because of the help that they received. They were very grateful despite their situation,” MP Damdamun-Latiph said.
MP Ramos shared their initiative is part of the service of the Bangsamoro Government for the Bangsamoro communities living outside the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
“This is our simple way of helping our Bangsamoro brethren who are living outside the Bangsamoro region,” MP Ramos said.
Meanwhile, the lady MPs extended their appreciation to the effort of the volunteers most especially to community leaders, Sohailie Bualan of Brgy. Tumana, and Mr. Saanudin Casidar of Brgy. Barangka. (GALao, Publication & Media Relations Division, BTA Parliament)
