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.
As part of its disaster relief operations, CDRC and Philippine Network of Food Security Programmes (PNFSP) fed 350 children in Mascap, distributed relief goods to 200 families and provided psycho-social counseling for 100 children. Counseling services were also given to 100 women. The relief delivery was supported by Civic Force, a Japanese NGO, and the psychosocial and counseling services by Caritas Switzerland.
