Past rotary guvs extend aid to typhoon-hit Surigao port workers

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte -- Port workers in the typhoon-ravaged Port of Surigao got a much needed aid as past district governors of the Rotary Year 2006-2007 in the Philippines pooled resources and stepped up to provide some of the basic needs of typhoon Odette victims in the Surigao waterfront.

Facilitated by Rotary District 3860, former district governor Fernando ‘Jun’ Almeda, who is based in Surigao City, along with the Rotary Club of Metro Surigao and the Surigao ROTARACT Clubs, around 250 relief packs containing essential items such as bottled water, canned goods, clothing items, rice and a box of vitamin C capsules were distributed among porters, dockworkers, utility workers, and security guards in the Port of Surigao.  

A former port manager of the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA)'s Port Management Office of Surigao, Almeda said that when his fellow past district governors informed him that they are sending help for Surigao, he immediately thought of allocating something for the Surigao port workers.
