UAE donates P55-M in aid to Masara landslide victims 

THE MASARA landslide victims in Davao de Oro received P55 million worth of goods from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during a turnover ceremony at Barangay Elizalde, Maco, Davao De Oro on March 17th.

His Excellency Mohammed Obaid Alqattam Aizaba, the UAE Ambassador to the Philippines, was present at the event, along with DSWD Secretary Rex Gatchalian, Davao de Oro Governor Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga, and 1001st Infantry Brigade commander Brigadier General Felix Ronnie B. Babac.

The donation included 5,000 boxes of family food packs filled with essential items and non-perishable goods. The DSWD will coordinate with the Davao de Oro Provincial Government and the Municipality of Maco to distribute the aid to the beneficiaries.

Gatchalian thanked the 10th Infantry (Agila) Division for its support in the DSWD’s relief operations. He emphasized it would have been difficult to deliver the aid to the affected communities without the Army’s help.

Gatchalian said it was the UAE embassy that reached out to the DSWD about the donation. 

Meanwhile, Major General Allan D Hambala, the 10ID commander, reaffirmed their duty to support the agency’s relief efforts. He assured that the assistance would reach every affected community in Davao de Oro and other parts of the Davao Region.
