6th and 7th wave


ANOTHER 600 families in Cagayan were provided with the basic relief assistance by the Rotary Club of Metro Baguio who also helped a family rebuild their house during the sixth and seventh wave of “Action Tulong para sa Cagayan” suppported by the club’s partners in service.

The relief distributi­on team headed by Rotarian Dr. Christophe­r Ian Cabalza took a different route going to Barangay Agugaddan, Penablanca after being advised not to take the road from Tawi Bridge due to path safety reasons.

The new route was also challengin­g but this did not stop them from going to their target areas where they provided the basic needs of the communitie­s.

At least 600 families in Dodan and Agugaddan, Penablanca which include the Aeta community were given relief packs with 3 kg rice, instant noodles, canned goods, coffee mate, coffee, sugar, bread, chocolate powder, toothbrush, toothpaste, and small cash during the 6th wave of relief distributi­on.

Pastora Angeline Padilla from Agugaddan expressed her deep gratitude for the assisatnce given to her community which was severely affected by typhoon Ulysses.

Meanwhile, during the seventh Wave of Relief Operations/Cash Donation, the “Project Bahay Silungan” was also implemente­d.

The team provided cash donation to help rebuild the house of Andang Bitamog and family which was devastated by typhoon Ulysses.
