DIR. BOBBY CALINGO FROM THE FIELD -----Original Message - ----From: Calingo, Roberto Ragasa (Bobby) 28 Feb 06 I am now in Cristo Rey Regional High School where we are having a medical mission and counselling with our Toledo, Pagbilao and volunteers from Ugat, and Vicente Sotto Medical Center. This is the place where families of victims stay . There is an ongoing relief goods distribution from the federation of phil volunteer fire brigade.Met with Dr. Rentuza municipal health officer in charge . She mentioned about the influx of medical teams . Tomorrow doctors from UCCP and Iglesia ni Cristo will do their medical mission . We have to move our doctors and medical team in another site. Dr Rentuza mentioned that victims have a tendency to do "medical shopping " . This is due to too much medical team vs actual victims . Re. Psychos o cial help, our team was integrated with the local team here to do family counselling . Individual counselling for families of victims has apparently been done already. The search and rescue have been halted since saturday. The press people have also moved to Manila. This might be the critical stage of the relief and rehab work - when the disaster will become a local event and long term support might wane. The efforts to move to rehabilitation stage has started although at a very slow pace . Mirant for its part might help out in the relocation of the survivors to a safer place . We will discus s the possibility of ensuring electrification of the resettlement site using Project BEACON scheme .

  6. 6. Subject: Update from St Bernard So Leyte Date: Wed, 1 Mar 2006 06:57:17 +0800 Today is the second day of Mirant's Project Mercury here at the Cristo Rey Regional High School. We will have the medical mission and feeding (700 people)program for the landslide victims. At least 150 victims were given medical consultation and medicines. Twenty underwent counseling. The team attended Interagency Coordination Group to have an insight as to rehabilitation plans for the area. This is what we have gathered so far: 1. There are three barangays that need full relocation (Guinsaugonn- 639 pop., Magatas-541 pop., Sug-angon - 417 pop) . The population figures are un official and based on estimates. The total estimated relocatees number 1,597 2. Several more barangays (6 barangays) need partial relocation. 3. The school based evacuation centers are given one more week before victims are moved to temporary relocation sites. The only problem is there still no lland for the temporary relocation site. DEPED official mentioned that victims might be asked to vacate the rooms and move to tents still within the campus site. Vacated rooms will be used for schooling. Based on my personal experience with Mt Pinatubo victims' relocation, it normally takes 2 years before victims could move to permanent relocation sites. This is something that the local officials apparently do not know. There is no clear timetable yet on how each stage would proceed from schools to teporary relocation site to the permanent relocation area. 4. The implication of this is continued support must be given to victims until they can move to the temporary shelters. I expect more children will get sick once victims move in to tents -too hot in the day and too cold in the night (ground is soil or mud). The victims are currently "deluged" with relief goods. Rooms where they stay are fully stocked up. I counted at least two times they are called to get relief good items from donors. There was even free haircut which ran the whole day yesterday. There is just too much generosity and goodwill here. I still believe that medical mission and feeding are the best way to go. People still get sick in the crowded evacuatioin centers. Mirant might commit to energize the temporary and permanent relocation sites once plans are finalized. Thank you. Will give more updates.
  7. 7. Subject: Re: Update from St Bernard So Leyte Date: Fri, 3 Mar 2006 10:09:48 +0800 From: "Calingo, Roberto Ragasa (Bobby)" <Roberto.Calingo@Mirant.com> To: <margebarro2@yahoo.com>, "Flake, Allan Paul Magat" <Paul.Flake@Mirant.com>, Pantoñal, Cynthia Vinas <Cynthia.Pantonal@Mirant.com> This is my second to the last update from the field. Mirant's team pulled out of the area yesterday morning and had a debriefing session during the day. Here is a summary of our team's activities and findings: 1. We have provided relief goods to at least 200 landslide victims last 20 to 21 February in partnership with PBSP, PASAR Foundation, Provincial Govt of Cebu and Mirant Toledo Power Plant staff. 2. Mirant fielded a 28- man team to provide psycho social counselling for victims and for a feeding ("soup kithchen") in Cristo Rey Regional High School. Cristo Rey High School hosts the survivors and familes from barangay Guinsaungon. The team was composed of representatives from Mirant Pagbilao, CTC, Foundation staff, Toledo Volunteers, Toledo City Office staff, UGAT Foundation (Ateneo de Manila-based Foundation) 3. The mission provided medical services to some 200 victims from 28 Feb to 1 March 2006. At least 30 individuals were provided counselling support. United Laboratories provided the medicine supplies for the mission. 4. The team of counsellors from UGAT will go back to St Bernard to continue the counselling work on March 5. 5. There was too much relief good items flowing into the area. I had observed that almost every three hours coordinators from 17 classroms where victims stay were called to receive goods from various donors. While more goods are still pouring into the area, this might show signs of tapering off as media groups no longer cover the disaster event. Our team went to ground zero on wednesday afternoon, and saw the place almost abandoned except for some tents, policemen and people looking around. The recovery of bodies has been stopped since last week. 6. On the immediate term, psycho social counselling might still be needed as recovery should start from the victims first. There was too much anguish and despair among the folks that we came to meet. Material goods (relief good items) might not be needed for now. 7. The local government unit and line agencies are to be credited for the work that they doing despite limited resources. However, capability to move from relief to rehabilitation phase might still be lacking. In the inter-agency meeting with private institutions in St Bernard that we attended, an american woman from UNDAC was presiding the meeting. The local planning and
  8. 8. development officer and the municipal disaster coordinating officer looked too tired and confused in the whole proceeding. The problem is UNDAC is wrapping up its work and will turn over coordinatorship to the locals. 8. Landslide victims in evacuation centers will be moved soon to temporary relocation areas. The tentative date of movement is March 3. The DEPED representative during the inter-agency meeting however, did not have an idea where to relocate the victims. The building of temporary relocation shelter for victims hit a snag as land could not be procured (land title problem) quickly enough. The US marine corp representative explained that if land could not be procured, it might not be able to proceed with the construction of the temporary relocation shelters. 9. Permanent relocation plan has not been prepared as of our visit. There have been many commitments for shelter from private institutions that await the relocation plan. 10. In case victims are moved into tents, medical missions might be necessary as more children and old folks get sick. I have scheduled a meeting with PBSP Visayas office today to discuss rehabilitation plans. I will propose that, in the housing relocation phase, Mirant to handle the electrification component at least for the Guinsaungon victims. We will work this out with So Leyte Electric Cooperative. I suggest that Toledo power be the proponent of this project with the support of Mirant Phil Foundation. Fyi ========================== Subject: So Leyte Update Date: Fri, 3 Mar 2006 14:08:30 +0800 From: "Calingo, Roberto Ragasa (Bobby)" <Roberto.Calingo@Mirant.com> To: <margebarro2@yahoo.com> CC: Pantoñal, Cynthia Vinas <Cynthia.Pantonal@Mirant.com>, "De Castro, Roderick (Ricky)" <Roderick.DeCastro@Mirant.com> Just finished meeting with PBSP Visayas staff. PBSP is getting ready for rehabilitation program. The PBSP staff relayed a message from the provincial staff basically saying that while Bgy Guinsaungon victims are being flooded by relief goods, there are three other municipalities in the southern most tip of the province that were also affected (although without deaths) and are in various evacuation centers. These areas are: Municipality of Liloan - Bgys Cati and Malangza with 131 households or 480 persons Municipality of San Francisco - Bgy Bunwawigan with 108 households or 572 persons Municipality of Sta Paz - Bgy Sur with 67 households or 274 persons and Bgy Norte with 62
  9. 9. households or 244 persons Interested organizations may contact Councilor Eva Tumol of the Provincial Disaster Mgt Council Operating Officer c/o Maasin Capitol Office I suggest that we ask Malu to help channel some relief good items to these places as they remain unnoticed by the ongoing relief agencies. On the rehabilitation front, while there are a lot of organizations who have committed to help out in the rehabilitation efforts, there is a need to set up a meeting among these varied groups to coordinate plans to prevent wastage of resources an overlapping of work while awaiting for concrete rehabilitation plan from the municipal or provincial government. The private sector organizations should synchronize plans and present this as an organized force to the LGU so that plans could be prepared and executed properly. I have asked PBSP to do this convening role. Thank you.
