NCCP Relief operation in Lubuagan, Kalinga

National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP) conducted relief operation last February 2, 2011 in Barangays Upper and Lower Uma, Lubuagan in the province of Kalinga, Philippines.  The two remote barangays were affected by typhoon Megi (assigned as Typhoon Juan by PAGASA) when it entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility and wreaked havoc on the country.

This particular operation is a tie-up between the the NCCP and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) in cooperation with the Episcopal Church in the Philippines' (ECP) Episcopal Diocese of Northern Luzon (EDNL)
