COTABATO CITY (SDN) –– A Bangsamoro agency created to respond to man-made and natural calamities continued its humanitarian mission, helping the thousands of Tropical Storm Paeng’s victims in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
This is the Rapid Emergency Action on Disaster Incidence (READi) under the wings of the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG).
One of READi’s latest actions is the relief operation in the various municipalities of Maguindanao, such as Mamasapano, Datu Salibo, Parang, and in Datu Odin Sinsuat’s Barangay Kusiong, one of the worst-hit communities of the province.
“Our relief operation continues,” said MILG Minister Atty. Naguib G. Sinarimbo, “while we are in the final stages of finalizing the Early Recovery Plan of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.”
Sinarimbo, the spokesman as well of the BARMM government, said work on “Early Recovery has already started as we shift from life-saving activities to life-sustaining activities.”
Contained in the Early Recovery Plan are the Bangsamoro ministries’ work related to the impact of “Paeng” that barreled the country starting on October 26 and exited on October 30, only after leaving a trail of fatalities, destruction of agriculture and infrastructure, and tattered lives.
It was understood the recovery plan of the BARMM, headed by Chief Minister Al-Hajj Murad Ebrahim is being designed to bring the affected communities and residents on their feet again.
“The Early Recovery Plan will put together the work of the different ministries and offices of the BARMM so we can synchronize our acts and pursue a more focused intervention towards recovery for the individual victims and the communities of tropical storm Paeng in the whole of the region,” said Sinarimbo.
Here are some photographs of the relief operation in the above-mentioned local government units (LGUs):
It is expected that the Bangsamoro government will be able to sustain its initiatives responding to the thousands of “Paeng’s” victims as the impact of the severe tropical storm will continue to be felt in the years to come.
The BARMM has 15 primary ministries to carry out the relief operation as well as the rehabilitation activities to enable the affected communities and residents to go back to their economic and livelihood activities. — EKU (/)
