Rizal was one of the provinces hit hardest by typhoon Ondoy. Floodwaters had just began to recede when Typhoon Santi dumped more rain on the town of Mascap. 72 families lost their homes and the town remains flooded. Many people are still in need of basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter. Among these are 250 children in from four sitios in the town of Mascap.
As part of its disaster relief operations, the Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) and Philippine Network of Food Security Programmes (PNFSP) fed 250 children in Mascap.
“Children are among the most vulnerable in disaster situations.” said Maria Isabel Lanada, PNFSP Executive Director. “Aside from food, they also need rehabilitation such as counseling.” CDRC is also providing educational supplies to replace those lost in the flood.
Together, PNFSP and CDRC have already delivered relief goods to 800 families in Rizal, Tarlac and Quezon City.
As part of its comprehensive relief delivery program, CDRC and PNFSP distributed relief goods to 200 families and provided psycho-social counseling for 100 children. Counseling and acupuncture services were also given to 100 women. The ferocity of Typhoon Ondoy swept away most of their houses.
CDRC Deputy Director Carlos Padolina also gave a short lecture on disaster-preparedness tips. Beyond providing immediate relief, both CDRC and PNFSP continue to work with disaster-stricken communities to help them get back on their feet.
