ARAYAT — The City Government of Angeles led by Mayor Francis “Blueboy” Nepomuceno visited this town Tuesday to provide relief assistance to residents affected by the mudslide that left 12 people dead on Saturday.
Nepomuceno said that since Angeles City was spared from the wrath of Typhoon Ondoy, the City Government found it fitting to extend help to fellow Kapampangans in need.
“It is the responsibility of those who have the capacity and resources to help people in need. We are here because we are willing to join in the mission of helping fellow Kapampangans and doing good knows no boundaries,” Nepomuceno said.
The Angeles City contingents distributed relief goods mostly composed of food stuffs, to some 1,000 families here.
According to City Administrator Mark Allen Sison, the donation was sourced from contributions, the mayor’s own pocket and the city’s calamity fund.
The City Government donated some P250,000 worth of goods composed of mostly food stuffs and P50,000 burial assistances to the relatives of the 12 people who died in the landslide.
“The province has experienced this great disaster that somehow awakened the civic spirit in us. We hope that these simple assistances would help our Cabalens in their road to recovery,” Sison said.
Nepomuceno also led the group to the City of San Fernando to extend some P250,000 worth of relief assistance to the city.
