Mayor Climaco gives aid to families affected by flooding


Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has led the distribution of food packs and hygiene kits to flood-hit families in Talisayan Friday, September 17.

Continuous rains Thursday night, September 16, caused water to rise in low-lying areas in Talisayan, displacing 141 families with 402 individuals.

The distribution, facilitated by the City Social Welfare and Development Office under Socorro Rojas in collaboration with the Barangay Council, was done at the Talisayan Elementary School, the temporary evacuation center.

Joining Climaco in the aid distribution were Councilors Pinpin Pareja and El King Omaga.
