We have receive good news from our contact, Anthony "Dicoy" Castroverde, this afternoon. The islets of Panitugan and Biagayag have been given tents by some donors.
We hope the other two islets - Moamboc and Silagon - will get some temporary shelters soon. As far as we know, the people in Silagon have started building their temporary shelters from whatever they can find.
Three days ago, Shane wrote Malteser International to inform them about the situation of the islets when we learned that they are going to Bantayan and other areas areas in the Visayas aside from Samar and Leyte. We have not received any reply from them until now but we hope that they will visit these two islets (or all of these islets) for some more assistance. We really hope that Silagon and Moamboc will be given temporary shelters as soon as possible.
