Davao City extends assistance to Paracelis
by Juliet B. Saley / PIA

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The city government of Davao provided financial assistance to the municipality of Paracelis, which was declared under a state of calamity due to the effects of the El Niño.

Davao City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office Officer-in-Charge Alfredo D. Baloran and Virgilio San Pedro of the City Treasurer’s Office travelled to Mountain Province to hand over the financial assistance.

Pascual Sacgaca, chair of the board of directors of the Philippine Red Cross-Mountain Province received the check worth P300,000.

Staff members of the Philippine Red Cross distributed the financial assistance to beneficiaries in Paracelis.

Baloran said the City Government of Davao usually hands over financial assistance directly to the local government unit beneficiary but since it was election period, the assistance was coursed through the Philippine Red Cross pursuant to Comelec Resolution 10511 which provides that should a calamity or disaster occur, all releases normally or usually coursed through the LGUs and offices of other departments shall be turned over to, and administered and disbursed by the Red Cross, subject to the supervision of the Commission on Audit or its representatives.

The Philippine Red Cross was urged to expedite the administration and disbursement of the financial assistance so that the basic needs of the affected farmers and families will be immediately addressed, Baloran added.

The City Government of Davao allotted P7.8 million from its 30 percent Quick Response Fund to support risk reduction work of other local disaster risk reduction and management councils.

Based on the data, the city government extended financial assistance of  P300,000 each to 18 municipalities including the municipality of Paracelis; P400,000 to Sultan Kudarat; P500,000 each to the cities of Zamboanga and Kidapawan, Cotabato;  and P1 million to Camarines Sur.

Philippine Red Cross-Mountain Province Administrator Robert Pangod said the financial assistance was distributed to 96 farmers in Paracelis.

Most of them received P3,000 each while others received P4,000 to purchase corn seeds for planting.
