Mobilize relief work for survivors of typhoon Ambo
In behalf of the hundreds of thousands of people who are suffering from the devastation wrought by recent typhoon Ambo in Eastern Visayas, and across the Luzon regions, the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) calls on all humanitarian and democratic organizations and agencies to extend urgent relief and socio-economic assistance to help the masses recover from the disaster.
The damages are especially extensive over the eastern and northern provinces of Samar, where entire towns were inundated and left without access to clean water and supplies. The toiling masses are suffering the most as the typhoon damaged their farmlands, boats and other means of production. This, on top of the ban of public transportation brought about by the Covid-19 lockdown measures, has made the people’s lives intensely difficult.
The Party calls on the mobilization of available resources to bring clean water, food supplies, clothes, as well as medical supplies, construction materials, and agricultural inputs and implements to help the masses recover from the devastation.
The Party urges all revolutionary forces within and outside the areas of devastation to organize relief work and ensure the quick delivery of supplies for urgent relief and rehabilitation work. The revolutionary forces can work with private and state agencies under the GRP to make sure that supplies and services are quickly delivered to those who require urgent assistance.
As in the time of typhoon Yolanda and other calamities, all units of the NPA are once again called to help facilitate the entry of relief workers and supplies and do their utmost to assist their work. Red fighters must be mobilized to help the people reconstruct their homes and assist in rebuilding their farms and resuming production.
