Makati City pledges P10-M relief, rescue team for ‘Yolanda’ victims

Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay yesterday offered his sympathy to the victims of Super typhoon “Yolanda” in the Visayas region, stating that the city government is currently preparing to send its rescue team and other forms of assistance, including a P10-million donation that he has requested the city council to approve with dispatch.
“On behalf of the city government and the people of Makati, I am extending our deepest sympathy to the typhoon victims in the Visayas who have lost their loved ones, their homes and livelihood. We are convening the city council for an emergency session to approve our P10 million allocation for relief assistance to devastated areas,” Binay said.
The mayor also said that the city’s rescue team is ready to be deployed to where its help is most needed, and that relief operations will start today at 12 noon at the Poblacion Covered Court. City personnel led by the Makati Social Welfare Department will be in place to prepare relief goods and also accept donations from concerned citizens.
Binay called on Makati residents and the business community to support the city government’s efforts to extend help and alleviate the suffering of fellow Filipinos in the typhoon-ravaged communities in
the Visayas.
“We appeal to all our brothers and sisters in Makati, especially those who can spare some food, clothing and other goods, to extend your generosity to the unfortunate victims. Let them know that they are not alone,” Binay said.
