Lately, Toledo City Government of Cebu donated P 500,000.00 in check, personally handed by its Mayor Aurelio P. Espinosa to City Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano . Manila Mayor Fred Lim also donated P1 million and Speaker Sonny Belmonte gave P500,000. Masbate Governor Rizalina L. Seachon Lanete sent her representatives to handover P 250,000 donations from their province. From the City of Biñan, its City Mayor Marlyn ‘Len-len’ Alonte-Naguiat came together with her team and also donated P266,632.00.

Pasig shares disaster management idea

Another LGU came up with a different, but smart, way to help CDO. Pasig City Team led by Pasig DILG chief Jay E. Timbreza and Pasig Liga President Ferdinand A. Avis also visited the city last February 16,2012. Their team introduced and discussed with Mayor Emano Pasig’s existing Disaster Risk Reduction and Management System (DRRM) – a DRRM action plan adopted shortly after their city was hit by typhoon Ondoy. Accordingly, they have now remained assured and disaster-resilient especially when it comes to flooding.


The Philippine archipelago locates in the Pacific Ring of Fire and is situated along a Typhoon Belt. Due to its geographical set-up, natural hazards abound in the archipelago- tropical cyclones, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions among others. Flooding and tropical cyclones are the ones most prevalent. An average of 20 cyclones visit our country every year. Like many other places in our archipelago, the City of Golden Friendship is also prone to natural hazards. Its citizens’ experience of the devastation of Sendong attests to this.

Yet, despite this great threat from nature, every LGU must, all the more, rise up to the challenge and muster its responsibility to build adaptive and resilient communities especially in the face of global climate change.

A real challenge that the CDO City Government, its people, local and foreign partners involved in the comprehensive rehabilitation work for Sendong survivors had stood up to.


For more than two months now, the city government, through the leadership of City Mayor “Dongkoy” Y. Emano, together with its donor partners, have focused its efforts in the completion of building permanent houses in the city’s relocation sites. A target of 1,000 concrete houses is to be completed by April 2012.

All financial aids from partner LGUs have contributed and made possible the rise of adaptive, disaster resilient new communities for Sendong survivors.
