The Municipal Government of Dalaguete (MGD) joined the Province-wide aid and help for the Naga City landslide victims. In cooperation with local government agencies, schools and individuals, we initiated a collection of relief goods (used but presentable clothing, blankets, and toiletries and of course food) all throughout the Municipality.

Aside from the relief goods we received from the Dalaguetnons, MGD, spearheaded by our Municipal Mayor, Hon. Ronald Allan G. Cesante and SB Members, also donated cash aid to Naga City to help the evacuees start a new beginning. For more than a week, there are still people who have not yet been retrieved nor rescued by the rescuers.

The Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office, Community Development Office, Dalaguete Star Center and the Municipal Government of Dalaguete would like to thank all those who lend a hand and donated for our brothers and sisters in Naga City.

Let us hope and pray that this tragedy will not happen again especially here in our Municipality. Let us spare a minute or two for all the souls of those who lost their lives and to the survivors who will continue striving and moving forward to surpass this challenge.

Prayer in Time of a Tragedy

Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated

by recent tragedies, especially in Naga City.

We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly.

We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss.

Bring them consolation and comfort.

Surround them with our prayers and strength.

Bless those who have survived and heal their memories of trauma and devastation.

May they have the courage to face the days ahead.

Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance and in

comfort to the best of our abilities.

Keep our hearts focused on the needs of all the community.

We ask this in Jesus’ name.

Amen.
