Cong. Lucy Torres recalls Duterte admin's quick response to quake-hit Leyte

HOW THE DUTERTE GOVERNMENT RESPONDS TO A DISASTER
By Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez
Noah Luchansky Dave
A day after the horrid earthquake that struck Ormoc City, Kananga, and other parts of Leyte, the President sent a team led by Presidential Assistant for Visayas Affairs Mike Dino and the military for an aerial inspection and rapid assessment of immediate needs on the ground.

Three days later, the President's men --- practically all the Cabinet Secretaries and some of their undersecretaries --- descended in full force, and a productive cabinet meeting that lasted over 3 hours was held at the Ormoc City Hall.

After three more days or exactly a week after the earthquake, the President himself, Pres.-Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte, arrived in Ormoc, again with his entire cabinet with him, for yet another meeting. This time, problems were not only discussed extensively but more importantly, immediate and lasting solutions laid out and promised. As I post this allow me to share that, true to his word, rebuilding efforts have already been officially rolled out, with more in the pipeline to commence ASAP.

Thank you, Mr. President, for your compassion and extremely quick action. Your actual presence during that difficult time brought us, the people of Ormoc and Kananga especially, a great measure of comfort and hope. Rebuilding is a gargantuan task that needs government intervention and we are grateful for your leadership.

To quote Sec. Art Tugade, your marching instructions were 'pakinggan at tugunan'. You and your cabinet have done/are doing exactly that. Thank you for your sincerity. Thank you for your commitment.

Mabuhay, Mr. President! May God bless you and grant you wisdom and strength and good health as you continue to lead our great country.
