Capas Batangas Relief Operations Project
CAPAS, TARLAC – Having been through the same tragic experience when Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991, the local government unit (LGU) and its locals gathered donations and help for the people of Batangas.
The Capas ❤️ Batangas Relief Operations project was initiated by local chief executive Reynaldo L. Catacutan and supported by Sangguniang Bayan members, local businesses, schools, and its Kapampangan and non-Kapampangan residents.
It was able to gather 4 truckloads of medicine, food, goods, water, clothes, and hygiene kits which were distributed among displaced residents of San Nicolas, Lemery and Agoncillo in three (3) evacuation sites in San Pascual, Batangas.
A total of 150 volunteers including officials, LGU employees, volunteers, representatives from different religious sectors, public school teachers, Wellspring High School and Montessori School of St. Nicholas assisted in the relief operations.
