Mayor Joselito Piñol of Mlang, North Cotabato, said a 70-member team from the municipal office will celebrate Christmas Day with the victims in Compostela Valley.
"This will be our most meaningful Christmas, sharing our blessings with the victims of calamity in Compostela Valley," Piñol
told the Inquirer
"We decided to cancel all Christmas parties of various line agencies," he
"Instead, the funds to be used for the parties were all set aside for the flood victims."
"To make it more meaningful, we all agreed to conduct relief operations from December 24 to 26, meaning we will be celebrating Christmas with the calamity victims," he
team will include several medical workers.
"We may not be celebrating this Christmas with our respective families but surely we can make the affected families happy with our presence and our presents," Piñol
