VICE President Sara Duterte assured victims of Typhoon Paeng that the administration is prioritizing the assistance and response to the needs of the people in this time of calamity.

In a statement Duterte said she is joining Filipinos in praying for the safety of everyone as Typhoon Paeng lashed many parts of the country.

“Rest assured that government institutions and Local Government Units are working nonstop and leading emergency operations in response to the crisis brought on by Typhoon Paeng,” she said.

“ My thoughts and prayers are with our fellow Filipinos who perished because of Typhoon Paeng and the thousands of families left homeless or displaced as it ravaged many parts of the country,” she added.

According to Duterte, the initial assessment of the extent of the devastation left by Paeng is already profoundly disheartening, and recovery is expected to be a heavy undertaking — but the Marcos administration’s priority now is to provide immediate assistance to affected families.
