MANILA, Philippines – The United States government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAid) has distributed a total of P11.5-million or $200,000 worth of humanitarian assistance, response supplies and equipment as aid to Surigao del Norte.
According to the US Embassy in Manila, this is to help the said province recover from the effects of the recent typhoon Odette and the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was USAid Philippines health office director Micelle Lang-Alli and Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance officer Rachel Gallagher who gave the said amount to the provincial government of Surigao del Norte led by Governor Robert Lyndon Barbers.
This includes 28,000 rapid antigen test kits, 10 generators and field tents, 22 laptops with routers, 50 oxygen tanks and 10 oxygen concentrators.
Vital sign monitoring equipment is also provided for rescue operations.
It can be recalled that aside from the P11.5-million donation from the United States, it also provided mental health and psychosocial support kits to families affected and possibly traumatized by typhoon Odette. RNT/JGC
