Supporters of Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” in Northern Luzon have worked together to extend aid to provinces affected by Typhoon “Maring” on Tuesday, Oct. 12.
The relief operations, led by ISKO Northern Alliance (INA) and Ikaw Muna Pilipinas (IMP), have already started in several affected areas in the provinces of Cagayan, Pangasinan, La Union, and Mountain Province.
“Nandoon na po sila on the ground. Sila na po mismo ang nagtataguyod ng tulong sa ating mga kababayan, doon po sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo,”said IM Pilipinas convenor USec. Tim Orbos in a statement.
The group coordinated with Domagoso on the provision of goods and other services needed for the victims.
Other organizations supporting the Manila mayor from different parts of the country have also responded to the call for help and support for the Ilocanos.
Meanwhile, INA and IM Pilipinas also appealed for the generosity of fellow Filipinos in this time of need of the countrymen in the north.
“Nananawagan po kami, ito po ang panahon para isatigil ang ating pagsasama-sama, pagtulong-tulong sa pulitika. Ibigay muna natin sa pagtulong sa ating kapwa,” Orbos said.
The two organizations have also opened their office at Victoria Sports Tower, EDSA, Dilliman Quezon City for donations.
