Just recently, the Iloilo City Government revealed that it will be extending financial assistance to local government units affected by the recent Taal eruption. Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas will be utilizing part of its Quick Response Fund to aid communities in eruption-affected areas. It can be recalled that the City Government also allocated funds for stricken communities affected by typhoon Ursula.
Treñas also said that he will meet with city officials to create an assessment as to what local government unit needs help the most. Moreover, Treñas also calls for Ilonggos to continue praying for those affected by the Taal volcano eruption.
“Let us pray for the people in Batangas, Cavite and especially those in Tagaytay. For the past several years, Tagaytay has become a recreational area,” states Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas during the regular flag ceremony last Monday.
