Brief Summary:

The activities for this period were focused on those areas which have not been provided any relief up till now, three weeks after Typhoon Ondoy. Migrante reached out to organizations such as KAMP—the alliance of organizations of indigenous people, MCPA- Moro-Christian People’s Alliance, KMP-Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas and KMU-Kilusang Mayo Uno – and helped in their relief activities.

The communities in Taguig—both in the Muslim community and the Lower Bicutan Area – were still covered in mud. It is anticipated that the disease of leptospirosis could spread in those communities because the clean-up drive by the local government has not started.

Meanwhile, Migrante also joined the 3 day caravan to hacienda Luisita called the Caravan for Land, Relief and Justice, an activity organized by KMP. Migrante brought relief packs to add to the relief packs of KMP and was able to mobilize 12 volunteerss, 2 from the US and 1 from Spain. These packs were distributed in 3 devastated towns of Bulacan and Tarlac.

This Ocotber 22, a Migrante team of  15 volunteers left for Pangasinan to join the CDRC, Central Luzon in conducting relief activities in three towns of Pangasinan. They brought with them goods: rice, dried fish, mineral water, mongo beans and 9 boxes of clothes (Migrante  Kuwait’s donation) loaded ina truck borrowed from one of the presidential candidates. The targeted towns for the rel;ief goods are towns where families of our members in UNIFIL-Hongkong live. Their relief efforts will be reported in the next update. They will be back on Oct. 24.

Targets for next relief activities:

Brgy. Escopa, Quezon City

Sta. Quiteria,Caloocan
