Legarda Campaigns in Negros Occidental

Facilitating discussions on disaster risk reduction and management tops Sen. Loren Legarda's itinerary as she barnstorms Negros Occidental in Western Visayas on February 22-23.

Legarda said she will take advantage of her presence in the province to educate the people and local government units on how they could be resilient from disasters and be prepared when natural calamities strike.

"I will visit the province to conduct a meaningful campaign by helping educate communities on disaster-resilient development planning and to raise awareness on the need to be prepared," said Legarda, Chair of the Senate Committee on Climate Change.

Even before the start of the campaign, Legarda has already been conducting disaster risk reduction (DRR) workshops in various provinces in the country.

The DRR roadshow will be held at the Carlos Hilado Memorial State College in Talisay City.

Legarda will also inaugurate a school building in Silay City, which she had funded through her Priority Development Assistance Fund.

Known heritage houses in Silay City did not escape Legarda's interest as she is scheduled to visit the Balay Negrense, Jalandoni House, and Ramon Hofelena House.
