Benguet rescuers, evacuees ask for momma with relief goods

BAGUIO, Philippines – “We only include the basic needs of our evacuees/IDPs (internally displaced persons). Thank you.” This was the reply of the Department of Social Welfare and Development - Cordillera to Dr. Rodrigo Leal,  SOCO Cordillera Chief, regarding the inclusion of momma (a type of quid made from betel nut, areca leaf, lime powder and tobacco) among essential relief goods. Momma is Cordillera’s indigenous “chewing gum” equivalent, especially among the Ifugao men. The quid, when spit, is red.
