LSDElogoDEFAULTTACLOBAN CITY- Members of the city councils expressed their gratitude to the help extended by the Turkish group Kimse Yok Mu which is among the first group of international groups that provided assistance to the people after the city was hit by the supertyphoon Yolanda.
The group is still in the city continuing their assistance even after it is now more than four months now since Tacloban was pummeled by Yolanda, said Councilors Cristina Gonzales Romualdez and Evangeline Esperas.
According to the two lady councilors, among the help extended by the Turkish group was the repair of the barangay health center in Barangay 61 located at Sagkahan District.
The group also stuffed with medicines and other medical supplies the said barangay health station.
The said health facility was severely damaged during the killer typhoon but with the repair done by the Kimse Yok Mu,”it is more beautiful compare to its previous condition,” the two councilors said.
The group also conducted their own medical and relief missions in different barangays across the city and debris collections.
“They voluntarily came to the city to help us on our rehabilitation efforts and in giving aids to the victims of the typhoons,” Romualdez said.
“The people in the city are very blessed with the support of the Kimse Yok Mu who did not stop on helping the Taclobanons until now,” she added.
She said that they were among the very first international groups to arrive in Tacloban after it was devastated by Yolanda that resulted to the deaths of more than 2,000 people, destruction of houses of more than 55,000 families and destroyed properties worth over P13 billion.
Councilors Esperas said that with the repair of the health center in Brgy.61, its residents would no longer go to other health facilities and to the Tacloban City Hospital.
Esperas also revealed that the repair of the Brgy.61 health center cost P1.5 million. (RYAN GABRIEL LLOSA ARCENAS)
