NAVAL, Biliran- Former Sen. Jinggoy Estrada visited Biliran province and distributed relief goods in one of the affected barangays of Naval, badly damaged by TD Urduja, today.
Together with Gov. Gerardo Espina, Jr. , Cong. Rogelio Espina and Mayor Gerard Roger Espina, Estrada distributed relief goods to families in Brgy. Sto. Niño, a coastal barangay of Naval.
He also took a short visit to the Biliran Provincial Hospital.
Meanwhile, the former senator inspected the Caraycaray Bridge, greatly devastated by Urduja, and crossed it after DPWH-Biliran announced that the bridge is already passable to pedestrians.
In an interview, Estrada said he sympathizes with the people of Biliran when they were hit by TD Urduja.
“Halos lahat na nasalanta panay mahirap, nagpag isip-isip ko naman na kailangan natin na bigyan ng kaunting tulong na nanggaling sa puso,” he said.
TD Urduja battered Biliran Province, leaving behind several human casualties and other forms of destruction, especially in infrastructure and agriculture. – BiliranIsland.com
