Capiz guv to donate salary to quake victims


Capiz Governor Esteban Evan Nonoy Contreras said he will donate his one-month salary to earthquake victims in Mindanao.

“As a gesture of generosity and concerns, I will share my whole month salary to our fellow brothers and sisters who are badly affected by the devastating earthquake in Mindanao,” said Contreras said.

The governor, who is celebrating his 50th birthday today, told his friends and relatives to donate instead of giving him gifts. (

Donation boxes will be placed at the Capiz Provincial Capitol building and Capiz Gymnasium in the Villarreal Stadium and ESLA-Governor’s Mansion.

Dubbed “Kabalaka sang Capiz sa Mindanao,” the keys to the donation boxes will be handled by the Archdiocese of Capiz.
