Alfredo Baloran, Davao City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) head, said the fund will be sourced from the Quick Response Fund of Davao.

“We will personally hand over the cash assistance to them as soon as we can. We no longer need to send them food packs since based on the reports that we received, they have enough food and what they need is a financial assistance to help them rebuild their houses,” Baloran said
As per the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC)

The earthquake killed 9 people, wounded 64 people, and damaged 80 houses in four barangays.
On the latest as of August 5, NDRMMC showed a total of 378 aftershocks were recorded in Itbayat town.
