NegOcc to donate P4M to typhoon-hit provinces


The Negros Occidental Provincial Capitol is set to make a financial donation of P1 million each to four provinces in Luzon devastated by typhoons “Rolly” and “Ulysses.”

The recipients are Albay and Catanduanes in Bicol Region (Region 5) and Cagayan and Isabela in Cagayan Valley (Region 2).

“In times of need, Negros Occidental should be able to assist and support other local government units,” said Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson. (

The amount will be sourced from the province’s existing Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council fund.

In August last year, the provincial government also extended cash assistance worth P1 million to Batanes after the town of Itbayat was struck by major earthquakes.
