'Yolanda' rehab efforts in Phl to continue
AN official assured on Saturday that the government has not lost its sense of urgency in pursuing rehabilitation efforts for the victims of typhoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan) since it hit Central Philippines in November last year.
“The sense of urgency of our government is still there,” Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said.
Coloma said that implementing a rehabilitation program is not an easy task, especially as the destruction brought about by the typhoon affected at least 44 provinces in the country.
He stressed that the scope affected by typhoon “Yolanda” is wide and bottomless, adding that doing everything is no joke.
Coloma noted that the government is doing its best efforts to provide assistance to every single victim needing it and is determined to keep doing so until necessary.
He also asked for more patience from the calamity victims and said the government is ready to welcome comments and suggestions on how to further improve the distribution of assistance.
Furthermore, Coloma urged the local government units, civic organizations and the citizens who have not been affected by calamities to be one with the national government’s efforts to build back better.
