Residents in parts of Luzon affected by Typhoon Nina late last year are getting P3 million in additional aid from Davao City.

The Davao City council approved the cash assistance to typhoon-affected parts of Marinduque, Quezon, and Batangas, Davao Today reported.

“We received a letter of urgency from the Mayor’s office for the approval of the additional P3 million financial assistance for the victims of Typhoon Nina. The fund will be coming from the Calamity Fund of the city for this year,” said councilor Danilo Dayanghirang, who chairs the council’s committees on finance and ways and means.

A breakdown of the aid includes:

– Gasan, Boac, Mogpog and Torrijos towns in Marinduque will receive P250,000 each
– Quezon and Batangas will get P1 million each

Expected to benefit are 43,620 families affected by the typhoon.

Dayanghirang said Central 911 Chief Emmanuel Jaldon will also deliver the financial assistance to the victims.

“We also authorized Mr. Jaldon to check the condition of the provinces and to monitor that the money will be used for the benefits of the people,” he added.
