Families Affected by Typhoon Ulysses Receive Tarps and Flashlights from CleanTech
Over thirty-two families were directly affected by the high, turbulent river waters in Sitio Manggahan, Barangay Daraitan in Tanay, Rizal during Typhoon Ulysses in November 2020. Although it has been weeks since the storm, the families continued to need assistance and support. This is why CleanTech Foundation donated tarps and rechargeable flashlights to the families.
Eufemia Enciso, Dumagat Tribal chieftain in the area, related that the families living by the river lost their homes to raging currents. Still recovering from the loss and damage, the families requested for tarps to complement the homes they are rebuilding. They also requested for flashlights so they can check the water level at night.
The community is not serviced by electrical power. This is why being able to monitor the river at night is critical, Enciso explains.
Apart from the tarps and flashlights, CleanTech Foundation also gave bags of rice to the families, and San Miguel Corporation gave coffee and canned goods.
