Hontiveros assists residents affected by recent Taal activity, urges mental health support for the displaced

Senator Risa Hontiveros has sent relief goods to residents affected by the recent volcanic activity of Taal.

“Sana sa tulong na ito maibsan man lang ng kaunti ang dinanas ng ating mga kababayan. Pinalala na nga ng pandemya ang kondisyon ng marami, dinagdagan pa nitong panganib sa Taal. We should all try to help where we can,” Hontiveros said.

The senator’s team turned over 200 packs of rice in the municipalities of Agoncillo and Laurel in Batangas. The goods are expected to reach families that have been displaced after the incident on Saturday.

Hontiveros, the author of the Mental Health Act, also stressed that mental health support should be extended to the families.

“Kadalasan, may dalang trauma ang sakuna. Ang mga biglaang pagbabago sa ating buhay na hindi natin napaghahandaan ay nakakaapekto sa ating mental health. Sana maliban pa sa mga relief goods, mapaabot din ng gubyerno ang mental health aid para sa mga evacuees,” the senator said.

“Hindi madali ang mawalan ng tirahan at hanapbuhay. Kailangan mabigyan ng suporta sa lahat ng aspeto ang mga kababayan natin. Kung maayos na masuportahan ang mental health ng mga naapektuhan, mas maayos din sila na makakabangon mula sa doble-dobleng trahedya,” Hontiveros concluded.
