Our Philippines partner, Balay Mindanaw has provided us with a further update dated December 26, 2017

Based on their initial assessment, the areas hit hardest by Tropical Storm Tembin (Vinta) are

  • Barangay Mindalano in the Municipality of Salvado, Lanao del Norte.
  • Barangay Dalama, Municipality of Tubod, the capital town of Lanao del Norte.

Current relief activities are

  • Relief assistance (Food and NFI) are mostly coming and provided by the municipal LGUs
  • Setting up of temporary shelters led by a former Mayor with help from carpenter volunteers from different barangays mobilized for the purpose.
  • Repairs to damaged roads by the municipal LGU expected to improve access within the week.
  • While the Municipal LGU can still provide the food requirements and few relief goods in the coming days, the need for potable water  remain an unaddressed problem.

Urgent needs are: 

  1. Safe drinking water
  2. Food
  3. Construction/repair of damaged houses
  4. Psycho-social support

Balay Mindanaw is immediately

  • Sending a Team to visit Brgy. Dalama and Brgy. Mindalano, to conduct actual assessments and discuss with key people how to best meet their needs.
  • Installing at least two Disaster Aid provided Sky Hydrants at strategic sites in the two Barangays.
