P5M aid to Marawi – Degamo
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo said the provincial government will give P5 million in financial assistance to war-torn Marawi City once it is declared under a state of calamity.

Capitol has funds for such purpose, however, it cannot be released due to certain government requirements, such as Marawi City being declared under a state of calamity, Degamo told reporters Monday after the 119th Independence Day celebration in Dumaguete City.

The Philippine Information Agency reported on June 3 that the city government of Marawi has approved Resolution No. 60, placing the city under a state of calamity and citing the massive damage caused by the current terrorist attacks.
