Red Cross continues water provision to Odette-hit communities

MANDALUYONG CITY -- Two months after Typhoon Odette wreaked havoc in the Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao regions and affected hundreds of thousands of individuals, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) continues to provide clean and potable water to Lapu-Lapu City last February 17, 2022.

PRC distributed 12,000 liters of water in Brgy. Mactan and 12,000 liters in Brgy. Purok.

Through PRC’s Water Sanitation and Hygiene Unit, the humanitarian organization also conducted hygiene promotion to 390 individuals and 322 individuals respectively in the said barangays.

Through the leadership of its Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon, PRC continues to aid the most vulnerable communities in Lapu-Lapu City affected by Typhoon Odette.

“Ang aming layunin ay mainagat ang buhay niyo upang lumakas ang bayan niyo,” said by PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon during a meeting on updates regarding their Odette Operations.

To date, PRC has distributed 3,066 hot meals, distributed 753,000 liters of clean water, cleared 171 cubic yards of debris by means of the PRC’s payloader, and conducted hygiene promotion to 49,764 individuals. (Philippine Red Cross)
