TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Almost all fund donations to Typhoon Lawin victims in the province channeled through the provincial government have been spent on various projects.

Provincial Accountant Virginia Puyoc reported that as of Nov. 24, a total of P4,510,967 cash donations received by the province was spent for various projects with balance of P309,021.57.

Members of the Disaster Relief/Response Operation and Donation Committee during their meeting last Nov. 28 unanimously approved to use the balance for the continuation of the construction of the houses of eight families in Dilag, this city.

Puyoc reported that 187 families in the province were beneficiaries of shelter assistance worth a total of P1.8 million. She said P445,130.56 was spent for the rehabilitation of the Cabaruan communal irrigation system; P237,365 for the purchase of information technology equipment for the Department of Education; P235,315.49 for water supply in Balatoc, Pasil; P134,000 for the roofing of Tabuk City National High School; and P14,994 for the repair of Socbot Elementary School.

She said P950,000 was obligated for the construction and repair of other damaged structures such as construction of a comfort room in Dilag – P100,000; construction of deepwell in Maligaya, Dilag – P200,000; rehabilitation of Sal-oc water works in Bangad – P300,000,  and repair of PNP barracks – P350,000.

Included for repair were the swine, sheep and goat housing, native pig shed and Rizal breeding center and Cafgu water works in Ag-agama, Western Uma.

For Tabuk City, particularly Barangay Dilag, P136,000 was released to 136 families while a separate amount of P360,000 was allocated to 36 families with totally damaged houses. Fifteen of the 21 damaged houses in the barangay were validated. Also, eight of the 15 were validated as totally damaged houses and were relocated to a residential lot along the cemetery site since they do not own the lot where their houses are situated.

In Pinukpuk, P80,000 was released to eight families in Socbot and P90,000 to nine  families in Magaogao but only seven implemented the shelter assistance. All  beneficiaries used their P10,000 shelter assistance in constructing new shelters which will be augmented  soon with the P25,000 emergency shelter assistance from the Department of Social Welfare and Development and the resources of the family themselves.

In Tinglayan, two families were assisted in Butbut Proper, one in Buscalan and another in Tulgao West. One family was also given P10,000 in Balbalan Proper.

During the committee’s meeting, respective functions of four task groups created were discussed and functions of local risk reduction management councils were properly defined.
