There’s still a call for relief assistance in our city. Although flood water has receded in the higher areas, the residents living in the lakeside are still flooded. The situation is bleak as flood water is predicted to recede not until next year. Even government services were not spared, just this month Comelec Muntinlupa relocated to the Alabang public market because flood water was already affecting voter registration.

A letter from servite Fr. Alvin say, “This is going to be a long-term operations. I mean, the distribution of (temporary) relief. This has to be programmed in such a way that there will still be relief goods in the coming days, not a one-shot deal.”, reiterating the need for continuous support until everything gets back to normal in these affected areas.

Relief in any form are being accepted. Anyone who’s interested to share can contact the Parish at 842-2424 or visit their office at National Rd., Tunasan, Muntinlupa.
