Lacson-Sotto supporters distribute aid to 'Agaton' victims in Iloilo


Supporters of independent presidential aspirant Sen. Ping Lacson and vice presidential bet Tito Sotto have extended aid to residents of Iloilo who were severely affected by floods brought by Typhoon Agaton.

The Lacson-Sotto Support Group (LSSG) in the area packed relief goods — including rice, canned goods and noodles, as well as shirts and face masks — for those affected by the storm.


LSSG members informed Lacson they are coordinating with the Philippine Coast Guard and plan to distribute relief items to affected areas in Northern Iloilo.


Among the areas they plan to distribute the aid to are Pilar, San Dionisio, Sara, Lemery, and Ajuy.

“It is always our pleasure to do this humanitarian act with your LEAD as our inspiration. You have our gratitude for your support to this activity,” Iloilo-based supporter Inesitas Palermo said in a message to Lacson.

Lacson and Sotto were scheduled to visit Estancia on Wednesday, but were forced to postpone their trip due to bad weather conditions.

“It is very heartening to know that our volunteers decided to share what they have for their fellow Filipinos – all without fanfare. We cannot thank them enough for taking the initiative to ‘convert’ a sortie into a meaningful humanitarian cause like what they are doing now,” Lacson remarked, after learning of the LSSG’s efforts.


Lacson calls on his supporters: It’s time to come out of your shell
