The local government of Muntinlupa, through the city’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, donated P2 million to Batanes Provincial Government for Itbayat’s rehabilitation after being struck by a 5.9 magnitude earthquake in July.

Muntinlupa City Councilors Marissa Rongavilla, Alexson Diaz, Katy Boncayao, and DRRMO chief Erwin Alfonso represented Mayor Jaime Fresnedi in the official turn-over ceremony of the P2-M financial assistance to Batanes Governor Marilou Cayco last August 17.

The financial aid to the Municipality of Itbayat, Batanes will be used to implement development projects in the town and construction of a housing project for the 268 affected families. Gov. Cayco extended her utmost thanks to the City Government of Muntinlupa and Mayor Fresnedi for his assistance in the rehabilitation and rebuilding of Itbayat.

Last July 27, series of strong earthquakes jolted Itbayat town causing damage to structures and leaving eight (8) people dead and dozens injured. According to bulletins from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), the town was hit by magnitudes 5.4, 5.9, 5.8 within hours of each other and several aftershocks. No tsunami alerts were issued.

Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi said that this initiative is the city’s share in helping our kababayans who are in need. “In the spirit of bayanihan, the local government of Muntinlupa will continue to lend its hand to towns in the country needing assistance,” the local exec added. Fresnedi hopes that the financial assistance will help in the rehabilitation and recovery of the towns. Recently, Muntinlupa donated financial assistance to typhoon-stricken CAR towns, rehabilitation of Marawi, and among others.
