KORONADAL CITY –– South Cotabato 2nd District Rep. Atty. Ferdinand “DINAND” Hernandez led on Monday (May 10, 2021) the turn-over ceremony of P12–Million “flood control” project that will protect the lives, properties and livelihoods of the residents of Sitio Dungan Lahek in Barangay Saravia in this city.

The said flood control project was funded and built through the efforts and initiative of Rep. Hernandez, who is also the Deputy Speaker of the House of the Representatives.

Rep. Hernandez was assisted by DPWH Assistant District Engineer Benedicto Amido, Construction Chief Bernardo Hambala, Mayor Eliordo Ogena, Councilor Bert Hinay, ABC President Gregorio Presga, Engr. Romeo Secang, Raoul Benzona and officials of Barangay Saravia and Sitio Dungan Lahek in turning–over the said project.

In a statement posted in his social media account, Rep. Hernandez narrated that “Noong mga nakalipas na taon, nagkaroon ng malakas na ulan at binaha ang mga residente ng nasabing sitio. Halos matibag ang kanilang mga bahay at di makatulog sa takot na baka maulit ang disaster na kanilang naranasan.”

Rep. Hernandez said the residents sought his help and he immediately visited them.

“Sila ay dumulog sa inyong lingkod at agad kong binisita upang makita kung paano ako makakatulong. Naghanap ako ng pondo upang ito ay agad na mabigyang aksyon. Nagrequest din sila na malagyan ng tulay upang makatawid sila sa kabilang gawi kung saan kasalukuyang nakatayo ang kanilang gym na akin ring pinapondohan,” Rep. Hernandez said.

Rep. Hernandez added: “Sa ngayon, masaya ako na natupad ang kanilang hiling at makakatulog na sila ng mahimbing matapos maitayo ang strukturang makakaprotekta sa kanilang mga pamilya.” #DM
