A few days later the emergency responder team hied off to the three areas on February 2 to fulfill their mandate of helping out BARMM residents in need.

Residents voiced their thanks to the Bangsamoro government for the attention.

Meanwhile, MILG-Sulu in coordination with the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Provincial Federation and the Local Youth Development Office (LYDO) in the province held a joint meeting on February 4 with SK officials and LYDO of Sulu.

The aim was to carry out MILG-Sulu’s mandate in overseeing the SK in the province. It also is to afford the SK members and the youth to brush up on governance and learn its intricacies.
