Actress Yassi Pressman led Odette relief activities with AP Partylist first nominee Rep. Ronnie Ong last week in various municipalities of Cebu. Pressman and Team AP first went to the Municipalities of Argao, Dalaguete, and Toledo in Cebu to conduct feeding programs with the help and support of its local officials. Almost two months since the super typhoon devastated most of the Visayas, many Cebuanos have yet to recover and are still slowly rebuilding their lives. Team AP also distributed free accidental insurance with medical reimbursement to selected member beneficiaries to help Cebuanos be ready for any unforeseen accidents in the future.
Team AP and Yassi Pressman also visited the four towns of Camotes Islands, Cebu–San Francisco, Pilar, Poro, and Tudela. Camotes is an island separated from the rest of Cebu, and that is why delivery of relief goods was very much welcomed by the four towns. “Babalik at babalik po kami dito para maghatid ng tulong. Di po namin kayo nakalimutan kahit kailan at parang pangalawang tahanan na po namin ang Camotes,” Ong said during his speech at San Francisco, Camotes Islands. Ong notably had various projects and programs previously for the residents of the island, helping their livelihood prosper through “Tulong Pangkabuhayan” programs.
The #164APPartylist team, as the crowd calls them, ended their leg at Pardo, Cebu City last Friday. Pressman said, “Isa po tayong pamilya sa AP Partylist. Matagal na po natin kasama si Rep. Ronnie Ong at ang kanyang pagtulong simula pa noong umpisa ng pandemya. At sa kabila rin ng bagyong Odette, nandito po kami para tulungan po kayo para sabay-sabay po tayong umahon. Sana po bukod sa tulong ay nakapagdala kami ng ngiti sa inyong lahat.”
