MANILA (Mabuhay) – Malacañang on Saturday reassured survivors of super Typhoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan) they will continue to get help from the government, more than three months after the typhoon devastated Visayas and parts of Southern Luzon.
Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said national government agencies continue to push for what “needs to be done” in areas hit by the super typhoon.
“We will keep pushing for those improvements and we will keep pushing for actions that need to be done on the ground for victims of Typhoon Yolanda. … Ipagpatuloy natin ang kailangan gawin para matulungan pa sila (We will continue to do what is needed to help them),” she said on state-run dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.
Yolanda left more than 6,200 dead after devastating the Visayas and Southern Luzon last November.
Some survivors had expressed disappointment with what they claimed was the lack of support by the government for them.
“We continue to assure everybody the national government agencies involved will continue to push for what needs to be done in areas hit by Yolanda,” Valte replied. (MNS)
