Dredging Equipment Arrives in Cagayan de Oro

These dredging machines will help in the cleanup projects on the major rivers of Cagayan de Oro City to prevent them from overflowing. The assistance, signed two years ago, provided P315 million for the purchase of necessary products for the recovery and disaster prevention of Typhoon Sendong affected areas.

Japan, as the top donor of ODA to the Philippines, as well as a disaster-prone country itself, has supported the Philippines’ disaster mitigation and management efforts by sharing its experiences and lessons learned from the past natural disasters.
