  • Description

    As the floodwater recede on Luzon Island of The Philippines, government agencies are still struggling to get massive amounts of food, medicine and clothing to isolated areas. The flooding, described as the worst in the nation's history, claimed at least 430 lives.

    One of the flooded towns is Taguig which has a population of thirty thousand in Rizal province. Like other towns, many of its citizens died, thousands were left homeless and without adequate food and clothing. The local churches -- those which weren't flooded -- have become overcrowded refugee centres.
