held in Babatngon, Leyte on July 2, 2015, as one of the identified series of activities in the observance of National Disaster Consciousness Month led by the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
Considering the massive destruction caused by super typhoon Yolanda in the Eastern Visayas region, LGU-Babatngon, Leyte was likewise grateful that it was the chosen area for the tree planting activity. The planting area was in Brgy. Malibago, Babatngon Leyte where participants planted talisay seedlings.
The activity was participated by various government and partner agencies such as the DENR, DPWH, DOH, PCG, PNP, BFP, PAF, OCD, EMB, CDRRMO, among others. The tree-planting activity is one activity intended to promote awareness of all DRRM efforts in the region. “This year’s NDCM celebration is themed “Pamilyang at Pamayanang Handa, Katuwang sa Pag-unlad ng Bansa.”
