“This is just the start. We will be working closely with the barangay officials in our relief efforts in the coming days. Aside from bringing them temporary relief from this situation, we are also willing to extend our help to the community and the government to provide long-term solutions so our kababayang Batanguenos will be able to rebuild their lives again,” Tee said.
