Please continue to pray for our country and our countrymen to be safe amidst this continuous rainfall and flood almost every part of the country.

I salute the continuous effort of both the government and the NGOs to help rescue those greatly affected by this “Habagat” or Southwest Monsoon.

For those people who can extend their help, please don’t hesitate to do so. We need all the help we can get to rescue and assist our fellowmen. As severe flood as this, it’s impossible for our government to assist everyone in need. I know that they are trying their best and giving all the efforts to help our people but they can only do so much.

For flood updates you may contact  MMDA Flood Control Information Center at 882-4177/882-0925.
