Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri’s heart goes out to Catanduanes.
Zubiri visited the typhoon-hit province and give support to the survivors following the devastation caused by the storm. The senator, in a post on Facebook, likened the devastation left by the typhoon to the damage caused by an atomic bomb.
“Visited Ground Zero in Catanduanes with Gov. Cua and saw the devastation there firsthand. It was like being hit by an atomic bomb 😢 were homes were blown away and hills and mountains that were once full of trees and abaca are now completely gone,” he said.
Using his own money, the senator distributed a trunkful of rice for the affected families in Catanduanes. He bought the rice from local farmers as part of his “buy local” campaign.
“Was able to give a truck load of rice from my personal funds bought from local farmers but we still need to push the Departments to fulfill their promises para bumangon muli ang Catanduanes,” he said.
Zubiri said he intends to follow up with the state agencies about the rebuilding efforts in the calamity areas during the budget deliberations in the Senate this week.
