Typhoon-stricken families in Ilocos Sur receive food items from PRC


The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) distributed food items to some 100 families affected by Typhoon “Maring” in Barangay Nagtupacan, Sta. Maria, Ilocos Sur. The weather disturbance has placed the entire province under a state of calamity.

In a news statement, PRC said it continues to assess the top 2 and 3 barangays greatly affected by Maring in coordination with the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office.  PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Richard J. Gordon immediately mobilized and deployed PRC personnel such as the Emergency Response Unit to support PRC’s intervention in the province during the first week of operations.

“I would like to commend the PRC’s staff and volunteers for their unending dedication to help the most vulnerable. Patuloy ang Red Cross sa paghahatid ng pag-asa sa mga naapektuhan ng Severe Tropical Storm Maring,” Gordon assured.

PRC recently provided 600 hot meals and disposable face masks for residents of  Barangays Nanguneg West Narvacan and Sta Maria.

Each food pack contains:
