CEBU CITY, Philippines — “We want to assure you that we will not leave you.”

This was what Police Colonel Roderick Mariano, Cebu Police Provincial Office (CPPO), have to say with all the relief goods they have distributed in the areas around Cebu Province.

Recently, Mariano together with at least 40 CPPO members went all the way to Bantayan Island in Barangay Kampingganon, Bantayan town, Cebu, to deliver 270 relief goods of rice and canned goods to the chosen poor families from the area.

The CPPO has already distributed relief packs to more than 1,500 families in the past few weeks also in Santander in southern Cebu and Balamban and Tuburan in midwestern Cebu.
