Abstract


This study aims to investigate the collaboration of the Local Government Unit and Non-Government Organization in giving assistance to the victims affected by the 2018 eruption of Mayon volcano in Barangay San Roque, Malilipot and Barangay Lidong, Santo Domingo in Albay- two most affected barangays. In particular, the study describes the roles played by the LGU and NGOs on the basis of their expressed goals vis-à-vis the actual provision of assistance as stated on Section 2 (e) of Republic Act No.10121 and 1991 Local Government Code. Through nonrandom sampling, the interviews with residents revealed that organized and joint response when it comes to the delivery of aid resulted to general satisfaction among the constituents.
However, informants expressed the needs to increase effort particularly the LGU in their attempt to reduce the aftermath of the eruption. Hence, the study highly recommends that the local government must be fair in
providing goods and services and always at the front line of emergency measures to ensure general welfare among its constituents.
