MANILA, Philippines—Vice President Jejomar Binay will fly to Davao and Compostela Valley on Thursday to aid victims of Typhoon “Pablo” (international name Bopha).

In a statement, Binay noted that his office would be distributing goods in Davao Oriental, Davao del Sur and Compostela Valley, three of the worst-hit areas ravaged by the typhoon.

Latest reports have noted that the typhoon had claimed the lives of more than 70 people, and caused several power outages and communication disruptions when it battered Visayas and Mindanao on Tuesday.

Binay also said the National Housing Authority (NHA) would provide materials for the repair of damaged houses, while the Home Development Mutual Fund (Pag-Ibig) would provide insurance and calamity loans to its members.

Meanwhile, the Canadian government had also vowed support for the Philippine victims, saying that the country was “ready to provide assistance if requested.”

“On behalf of all Canadians, we offer our deepest condolences and sympathies to those who have lost loved ones or have been otherwise affected by Typhoon Bopha,” Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and Minister of State for Foreign (Americas and Consular Affairs) Diane Ablonczy said in a statement issued Wednesday.
“We stand with the people of the Philippines during this difficult time and remain ready to provide assistance if requested,” the officials said.

  • eltee mulawin

    >>>ganiyan ka tuso si JB kaya naman lahat nagulat at nakalog at natalo si Mar R noon, at ngayon darating na 2013…sigurado landslide ang panalo sa Mindanao. At iyan ang pinaghahandaan muli ng LADLAD PARTY …masyadong tahimik ang grupo now a days. hmm anong gimik ang binubuo ng mga ito para sa 2013.

  • Maldi2

    Hope the intention is for real.  But just wondering if Binay is encroaching the job of DSWD.  I smell political color…hmnnnnn

    Tuwangtuwa ang ating mga pulitiko kapag natutupad ang kanilang panalangin, na magkaroon ng kalamidad para magamit  nila ito sa pamumulitika.  Dapat sana  habang kalakasan ng bagyo naroon na sila sa gitna ng nagliliparan na mga yero o kaya sa mga ilog na marami sa ating mga mamamayan ang inaanod lalanguyin nila para sagipin, at syempre magsasama siya ng press na babayaran nya. Di kaya nandoon siya sa lugar  na magkakaroon ng landslide para kungyari tutulungan niya magsilikas ang ating mga mamamayan , at ipakita nya na siya ang kahulihulihang nag evacuate  doon sa lugar kasama syempre  ang pres na kanyang bayaran.Picture dito picture doon ang gagawin ng press na bayaran  hanggang sa abutan sila ng landslide, diba magandang paraan ito para makakuha ng maraming boto.

    why, why why delila? Iyan na naman, handang handa si Binay dito kasama ng mga artista at UNA-unahan sa pangangampanya PARTY. Bago pa man nakita ang pagbuo ni PABLO nakapagpaprinta na siya ng mga banners at pictures para sa kanyang mga relief goods. Panalo na naman ang mga POLITIKO. Kaya pala hindi mawala wala ang BAGYO sa Pilipinas dahil may nananalangin.. nananalangin para makapangompanya para sa darating na eleksyon. Wag ninyong kalimutan mga kapus palad na BOBOTANTE at paniwalaan ninyo ang pinag sasabi nila dahil kung wala kayo sigurado matagal ng UMASENSO ang PILIPINAS. Mabuhay ang BAGYO, mabuhay ang mga POLITIKO.

  • disqusted0fu

    im not really a fan of Binay, but at least he went to the site to help. what about the president? where is he?

  • Your_King

    Let the campaigning for the 2016 Presidential elections begin. But seriously its good that Binay is showing his presence and boosting morale at these affected areas. Hopefully he can do more than just boost morale for the victims. One thing is for sure however, at least the VP is doing something for the victims, that seems to more than what can be said of the P.
