A netizen praised President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration for quickly sending help to the victims of Typhoon Rosita in a remote area in Kalinga.
Yesterday, Sharielynz Tioga Palalisan posted some photos showing the Philippine Air Force (PAF) and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) delivering relief goods to Brgy. Lubo Dacalan, Kalinga, one of the affected areas of Typhoon Rosita.
To quickly deliver the boxes of relief goods, the military used their helicopter.
Residents of Brgy. Lubo praised the government for quickly sending help to them one day after President Duterte’s briefing.
Some of them expressed their happiness after the government proved that they’re not letting their people suffer long.
The boxes will quickly be distributed to the families of the said Barangay.
Meanwhile, Ms. Palalisan also dedicated a message to the President and his administration.
“For our PRRD command, that’s why mabilis ang action – it was briefing yesterday bago ang tatay digong umuwi sa Davao, para bumisita sa kanyang mahal sa buhay sa sementeryo. Kung kay Aquino administration iyan, hinahagis lang from helikopter, at konti lang at kadalasan wala pa.!! Nakaka-proud ang maging isang Filipino na ngayon.??️ So, thank you very much mayor president Duterte and on behalf of your administration. Salute.??✊? Mabuhay po and God Bless”
Some netizens also expressed their amazement on the performance of the Duterte administration in helping Typhoon victims.
They also noticed how the packaging of DSWD’s relief goods changed.
“Dont mind his gruesome words but mind his humanity services to the filipino peole. Action speak lounder than words,” Archimedes Cabilbil said.
“Yan ang tulong nakabox, presentable tingnan. D tulad noong mga tulong na binibigay dati na nakaplastic lang at halos walang laman. Plastic din kasi ang mga nagbibigay.” Jorge Lascona commented.
“Sa Duterte administration lang yan nangyari khit dto sa cagayan kbilis ng mga sundalo na naghatid ng mga reliefgoods,” Darwin Valera remarked.
As of writing, the original post of Palalisan reached thousands of positive reactions and 23,000+ shares from social media users.
During the briefing on November 1, Duterte also praised the government for their quick response to Typhoon Rosita.
“I think that everyone is doing his duty. I’d like to thank you for that,” President Duterte said during the situation briefing on Typhoon Rosita at the Hotel Andrea in Cauayan City, Isabela.
He also suggested to give the affected families of ready-to-eat food instead of giving them goods that still need to be cooked.
“Huwag ninyong bigyan ng kaldero pati planggana. Kasi wala ‘yan silang malutuan and they have to gather the firewood and everything,” he explained.
