MANILA, Feb 15 (PNA) — With about 100 days after typhoon “Yolanda” devastation of the Visayas Region, Malacanang on Saturday assured that the government will continue to provide help as long as it is needed. Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte, in an interview on state-run dzRB Radyo ng Bayan, raised the issue in reaction to reports showing that there were victims dissatisfied by the help provided by government. “We continue to assure everybody that the national government agencies that are involved will continue to push for what needs to be done in the areas that have been hit by typhoon Yolanda,” Valte said. “In fact last night I was watching the news and there was an outlet that reported there are some who have already transferred to bunk houses,” she added, this time in a mix of Filipino and English. Valte also said that although there have also been reports that the situation is already improving, the government will “keep on pushing” on those improvements. (PNA)
