Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. kicked off his personal relief efforts to help the residents in Batangas affected by the Taal Volcano eruption.
The politiko visited the town of Tuy to distribute the relief goods to some 1,500 evacuees across seven barangays.
The packs include an N95 face mask, instant noodles, bottled water, blanket, and personal hygiene kits. Marcos also donated excess clothing articles to each barangay.
“The government’s response to the crisis has been very good. However, we wanted to focus on those who voluntarily left and are staying in evacuation sites that have received insufficient assistance,” Marcos said.
