Four thousand (4000) residents from 23 towns and 2 cities of Misamis Oriental volunteered to assist the city government of Cagayan de Oro in cleaning up some areas affected by the typhoon Sendong.
This group of volunteers was organized and now called the ‘Kagay-anon Katimbayayong mo Kami’ or KKK due to the initiative of Congressman Bambi Emano and supported by the Vice Mayors League of Misamis Oriental.
The KKK voluntarily came to CdeO bringing with them their heavy equipment and personnel last January 18 and started cleaning up the affected areas particularly the area in Carmen south of the Carmen Bridge.
The victims in Carmen expressed their joy and heartfelt gratitude upon seeing that they are not alone after all in the heavy task of lifting off all the mud and debris left by the typhoon Sendong.
Congressman Emano made it clear that this is just the first phase of the KKK’s clean up plan. They will come back soon to help clean up as many affected places in the city as they can.
Below are some pictures taken during the Clean Up.
