NANAWAGAN si Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez na maging kalmado ang lahat matapos ang pananalasa ng super typhoon Egay sa hilagang bahagi ng Luzon.

Tiniyak ng lider ng 312 miyembro ng Kamara na kumikilos ang gobyerno para makapagpaabot ng tulong sa mga sinalanta ng bagyo.

“President Marcos is doing everything he can to assist, help and provide assistance to super typhoon Egay victims. We want to make sure that at this time of extreme need, the people should feel that their government is with them,” sabi ni Speaker Romualdez.

“We have already raised funds for relief, and we are trying to raise more. We expressed gratitude to all first responders. What is important is we help bring back the lives of victims to normalcy,” dagdag pa niya.

Nakatakdang pumunta si Speaker Romualdez sa mga lugar na sinalanta ng bagyo para sumama sa isinasagawang relief operations. Nasa Malaysia ang Speaker kasama ang Pangulo.

Sa pagtutulungan ng tanggapan nina Speaker Romualdez at Tingog party-list Reps. Yedda Marie K. Romualdez at Jude Acidre, nakapangalap na ang mga mambabatas ng P128.5 milyong tulong para sa mga nasalanta.

“This is the same Bayanihan spirit that allowed Tacloban City and the Eastern seaboard to recover and bounce back from Super Typhoon Yolanda almost 10 years ago. Truly when we are united in our objectives, there is nothing we can’t do,” sabi naman ni Rep. Yedda Marie Romualdez.

Sa P128.5 milyong halaga ng ayuda, P23.5 milyon ang nanggaling sa personal calamity fund ni Speaker Romualdez.

Kontribusyon ito ng kanyang mga kaibigan na nalikom sa pagdiriwang ng kanyang kaarawan noong nakaraang taon.

Mula naman ang nalalabing P105 milyon sa Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program ng Department of Social Welfare and Development sa pamumuno ni Sec. Rex Gatchalian.

Bago ito, marami ng relief drive at AICS pay-out na isinagawa ang Speaker’s Office at Tingog para sa mga biktima ng bagyo, sunog at iba pang kalamidad.
