MANILA, Philippines — The Pasig City government donated on Friday cash amounting to P5 million to five local government units lashed by Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai) which barreled many parts of the country last week.

The local governments of Dinagat Islands, Southern Leyte, Negros Oriental, Surigao del Norte, and Bohol will receive P1 million each from the Pasig City government, according to Mayor Vico Sotto.

“In the spirit of Christmas, let’s find ways to help those in need,” Sotto wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, other local government units in Metro Manila also announced their cash donations to areas hit by the typhoon. Odette was the 15th storm to cross the Philippines and the strongest this year.

The capital region’s cities of Quezon, Muntinlupa, and Manila said they will be giving P20 million, P10 million, and P2.5 million, respectively, to areas affected by Odette.
