The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Tacloban City District Engineering Office (TCDEO) – relief team, headed by OIC-Chief Administrative Section Arlene Ballon accompanied by Administrative and Maintenance Section staff, pushes through with the distribution of its 3rd batch of relief goods to five distant barangays of San Ricardo, Southern Leyte on January 21, 2022. 

These five barangays include Barangays Looc, Kinachawa, San Ramon, Bitoon, and Saub.

On the office’s previous distribution to Brgy. Looc, residents from the near barangays was seen waiting along with the target beneficiaries hoping that they would be able to receive a relief pack, unfortunately the office was only able to generate and prepare enough number of packs for one barangay. 

Upon seeing the situation and struggles of other barangays, generous donors have seen their struggles and heard their pleas which encouraged them to volunteer and extend help through their cash and goods donation. Having been able to receive enough donations, the office was able to launch its third relief operation.

A total of 550 families were able to receive one bag of relief goods containing 2 meters sakoline trapal, 3 kilos of rice, noodles, powdered milk, chocolate powdered drink, coffee, canned goods, sugar, detergent bar, and used clothing.

 The District is beyond grateful to all private sponsors/donors who have generously shared their blessings and extended help to those who have been devastated by Typhoon Odette. Also, for trusting the office in leading the distribution of relief packs. (DPWH-TCDEO)
