The governor of Sucre, Héctor Olimpo Espinosa Oliver, once again sent an SOS to the national government and called on all Sucreños to join together in solidarity with the inhabitants of La Mojana and San Jorge, who have been affected by the current season of rains, which has generated serious flooding in several municipalities of the department.
The president stressed that the situation in La Mojana is repeating itself and that this time it collapsed with rising river levels, which has left the population in an unfortunate environment. For this reason, he maintained that the solidarity of all Sucreños is required to donate non-perishable food, clothing in good condition, blankets, wood and cleaning products to help the victims of the municipalities of Sucre, Guaranda, Majagual, San Marcos, San Benito Abad and Caimito.
“Our countrymen need us, and for this reason it is important that we unite for a good cause. Let’s make a difference, because we are all Mojana and San Jorge. We will not leave them alone. Fortunately, the structural solution is already proposed so that in the medium and long term this situation does not occur again; meanwhile, we must continue to address this problem with humanitarian aid and timely attention to the victims,” said Espinosa Oliver.
The Departmental Administrator indicated that this Tuesday, June 28, a Unified Command Post will be developed from the municipality of San Marcos and the effects of flooding in La Mojana and San Jorge will be inspected, in which mayors, unions, community leaders will participate , relief agencies and municipal risk management coordinators.
Donations will be received at the Government of Sucre this Tuesday, June 28, from 8:00 in the morning.
