    OVP and Partners Continue DRR Initiatives in Bicol

    31 March 2017

    The Office of the Vice President, together with its Angat Buhay partners, Latter Day Saints Charities and Kaya Natin Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership, has continued to provide assistance to more than just projects, but also remain to be frequent donors in helping out in Disaster Relief Response (DRR) initiatives.

    Rehabilitation for typhoon Nina-affected areas continue, and with the help of Latter Day Saints Charities and Kaya Natin Movement, families are finally able to rebuild houses and communities are able to move forward.

    March 27-April 1 and April 7, marks a week-long ground work for the partners, along with representatives from the DRR of the Office of the Vice President (OVP).

    Five affected municipalities were visited in Camarines Sur: Bula, Pasacao, Sagñay, Ocampo and Buhi. In each area, 3,680 corrugated GI sheets were distributed to reach 400-900 families for house repairs, reaching out to approximately 4000 families in the province.

    DRR is another component of the Angat Buhay flagship program of the OVP.

    It aims to touch-base with communities stricken by calamities, and connect them to willing partners from the Angat Buhay roster, who have generously vowed to help not just the marginalized, but also the victims of disasters.
