DAVAO CITY – The city government of Davao will be donating P1 million to disaster-stricken Marikina City, its sister-city, local officials said.

The assistance will be extended after severe southwest monsoon rains inundated the city close to Ondoy-level waters last week.

The City Council approved, on suspended rules, last Tuesday, the donation after Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio asked the legislative body to allow the city government to send help in the form of cash.

Marikina has been declared under a state of calamity, with at least 10 barangays affected by the floods.  (Yas D. Ocampo)
