The Philippine National Police (PNP) said it has provided PHP2 million worth of relief goods to the victims of the recent earthquakes that jolted parts of Mindanao.

PNP spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Bernard Banac said PNP officer-in-charge (OIC), Lt. Gen. Archie Francisco Gamboa arrived in Makilala, North Cotabato on Wednesday to turn over the relief goods which include food, water, tents among others.

“Yes, at present our OIC is visiting quake-affected areas to personally turn over PHP2 million worth of relief goods to earthquake victims,” Banac told reporters in a press briefing Wednesday.

Banac said the relief goods came from the donation of all PNP personnel who were previously asked by Gamboa to donate at least PHP10.

He added that all goods were received by officials of the local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Councils (DRRMCs).

On Monday, Gamboa assured that the PNP will provide financial assistance to the policemen affected by the swarm of earthquakes in Mindanao.

Meanwhile, a total of 2,756 PNP personnel in Northern Mindanao, Davao, and Soccsksargen regions were fielded for search, rescue, and relief operations in the affected areas.
