UNITEAM presidential aspirant Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. and his running mate vice presidential bet Sara Duterte are continuously working to attend to the needs of Filipinos affected by the Typhoon Odette in Visayas and Mindanao.

Aside from providing food, potable water, and helping in the restoration of power and rebuilding of shelters, the BBM-Sara tandem is also working to provide much-needed medicines and vitamins for children, the sick and senior citizens who are taking maintenance medications.

“There is one item, hindi ko alam kung may problema kayong ganito dito pero yung sa iba ang nagiging problema yung sa gamot para sa yung mga maintenance na walang makapasok lalo na yung mga senior (citizens),” Marcos said.

Bongbong and Sara promised to immediately look for donors who can provide medicines for the victims.

“But seriously when I get back to Manila magtatawag na ako at maghahanap na kami, tulad ng Mercury Drug, Unilab, kung anong makuha natin isusunod natin,” pahayag ni Marcos.

As of today, medical supplies, donations and pledges are starting to pour in but he is still looking for more donors for the typhoon victims.

“Nagpapasalamat tayo sa mga nagpaabot na ng kanilang tulong para sa mga gamot na medikal na kailangan ng ating mga kababayan na nasalanta ng bagyong Odette sa Visayas at Mindanao.

Patuloy pa rin tayong maghahanap at tatanggap ng mga tulong mula iba’t ibang kumpanya para naman matugunan natin ng sapat ang pangangailangan pangkalusugan ng ating mga kababayan,” Marcos added.
