Pacquiao distributes aid to North Cotabato quake victims


KIDAPAWAN CITY – Senator Manny Pacquiao and wife Jinkee distributed Friday relief goods to quake victims in one of the hardest-hit villages here.

Accompanied by his brother, OFW Party-list Rep. Bobby Pacquiao, the senator and his party arrived here shortly before noon and first met with Kidapawan City Mayor Joseph Evangelista in Barangay Ilomavis.

While there, the senator was briefed on the extent of damage the tremors have brought to the city.

Evangelista has sought help from the Mindanao senator in rebuilding the city.

“You could assure of my help in rebuilding Kidapawan City,” Pacquiao said in his meeting with the mayor.

After Barangay Ilomavis, Pacquiao proceeded to Makilala and other areas hardest hit by the calamity and also extended help to quake victims. (PNA)
