Relief Operation in Talim Island - December 23, 2009

Barangay Navotas is one of the communities in Talim Island affected when the waters of Laguna Lake rose more than three meters due to the heavy rains of 2009.  Three months later, water levels are back to normal and people have started rebuilding their lives.

Workers and volunteers loading the banca with food packs from the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Damage to property along the coast.

Unloading the food packs.  PAMALAKAYA, the local organization of local fishers, was NCCP's partner in making sure that the operation run smoothly.

Recipients waiting outside the Barangay Hall.

Calling out the names of the recipients.  Two representative per family will be allowed inside... will sign the receive form...

...the other will carry the food packs... with a smile.
