The recent conflict in the town of Inabanga, Bohol has affected over a thousand residents since Tuesday, prompting Angat Buhay partners to send relief goods for support.
Residents caught in the clash between government troops and alleged members of the Abu Sayyaf have been moved to evacuation sites, creating the need for basic supplies such as food, water, and temporary shelter.
Angat Buhay partners have responded through the Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation (DRR) component of the OVP program, bringing the initial batch of donations directly to the local government unit of Inabanga Wednesday afternoon.
Thirty sacks of rice, 15 boxes of canned food, and 80 packs of bottled water were turned over today, to be distributed to affected residents n the province.
DRR is the disaster management component of the Angat Buhay program that focuses on providing assistance to our fellow Filipinos who have been put to risk by calamities or armed conflicts.
