Days after Severe Tropical Storm Paeng (international name: Nalgae) exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), the trail of massive flooding, rain-induced landslides, and displacement it left across vast areas of the country has affected over two million individuals or 510, 222 families. STS Paeng caused damage to livelihood and disrupted food and water supplies. The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) has been sending its fleet of food trucks to vulnerable communities in hard-hit areas to alleviate hunger and reduce the food security concerns of affected families.

“The nutrition of people in areas hardest hit by Paeng could be affected because the access to food and safe water in typhoon-affected towns and cities is usually disrupted. We at Philippine Red Cross (PRC) will continue boosting our efforts to address the nutrition needs of our kababayans in vulnerable situations,” said PRC Chairman and CEO Richard J. Gordon.

As of 04 November, PRC has served hot meals to 28,029 individuals in cities and towns affected by STS Paeng: Maguindanao, Zamboanga, Tawi-Tawi, Aklan, Negros Oriental, Negros Occidental, IloIlo, Northern Samar, Antique, Cebu, Masbate, Romblon, Palawan, Bataan, Cagayan, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Batangas, Catanduanes, Laguna, Zambales, Aurora, Pangasinan, Kalinga, Quezon, Nueva Viscaya, Marinduque, Isabela, Bulacan, Manila, Marikina, Rizal, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, and Pasig-Pateros. PRC also distributed 2,499 bottled water in Cagayan.

Meanwhile, Gardenia Bakeries, a long-time food donor of PRC, donated bread loaves — these were distributed to 1, 455 affected families in Laguna and Pampanga. During his first term as a senator in 2009, Chairman Gordon authored the Republic Act No. 9803 (RA9803) or the Food Donation Act of 2009, which aims to address the country’s growing hunger problem and bring dignity back to the most vulnerable simultaneously.

Since 28 October, PRC has positioned relief assets and equipment, such as payloaders, water tankers, and food trucks to Paeng-affected communities. PRC staff and volunteers are monitoring the affected families’ further needs for food, safe water, clothing, shelter, hygiene, sanitation, and medical and psychosocial care.

Red Cross Gives Cash Grant To People of Cam Sur

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) continues to provide aid through its local chapter by rolling out a cash distribution program for the victims of Typhoon Rolly years after the devastating hurricane ravaged the areas of Camarines Sur. Over 390 beneficiaries from four barangays from the Municipality of Nabua were given PHP4,000 each earlier this week.

The PRC Cam Sur Chapter distributed the cash grants in Nabua with 103 beneficiaries from Brgy. Malawag, 66 from Topas Proper, 24 from Sto. Domingo, and 113 from Sta. Lucia.

The cash grant was the second installment of PRC’s Household Livelihood Assistance for the typhoon-ravaged areas of the province.

“Typhoon Rolly has come and go, but the damage it brought is still felt by our kababayans. Kaya naman tuloy-tuloy lang ang ating pagbibigay tulong sa mga kababayan natin diyan sa Cam Sur,” said PRC Chairman and CEO Senator Dick Gordon.

The PRC management said that it will continue to be the lifeline of the people and will not stop its humanitarian work in providing aid to the most vulnerable.
