Apayao Governor Eleanor Bulut-Begtang lauded Baguio City government for its P500,000 worth disaster assistance to the province last year.
Apayao was heavily affected by heavy rains during the tail end of cold front in December 2019.
The damage wrought by the heavy rains prompted the provincial government to declared a state of calamity in Apayao.
The Apayao politiko said Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s quick offer to provide assistance should be emulated.
Aside from Apayao, the Baguio city government also provided assistance to Batanes, Cagayan and Mindanao.
