National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) turned-over relief assistance to 1,500 displaced families of Marawi conflict, staying in Iligan City.
The relief assistance includes hygiene kit, underwear, malong, diapers, and pails that were distributed to evacuation centers in barangays Tibanga, Sta. Elena, Ma. Christina, Buruun gymnasium and Buruun School of Fisheries and homebased community in Barangay Santiago.
PSupt. Romanita Bulanon, deputy chief, Regional Police Community Relations Division of NCRPO, said that the relief assistance was realized through a fund raising activity by selling shirts marked with “NCRPO Supports Peace in Marawi.”
Water containers used as “alkansya” (piggy bank) were also put up at five police districts and 38 police stations of NCR to collect donations from police officers and civillians.
This initiative was spearheaded by NCRPO chief Director Oscar Albayalde and NCRPO’s Ladies Club led by Cherry Albayalde.
PSupt. Bulanon also hopes that other sectors will also send their support to the internally displaced persons. (Lou Ellen L. Antonio/PIA-10 Iligan City)
