Relief Assistance to Families Affected by Abra Earthquake

According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), a total of 48,477 people are currently displaced across the Cordillera and Ilocos Regions following the 7.0-magnitude earthquake which struck the highland province of Abra on 27 July.

NDRRMC further reported that 24,547 houses and 177 health facilities were either damaged or destroyed. Some 263 schools sustained damages with 1.157 classrooms also either destroyed or damaged. Agricultural infrastructure was also damaged, such as irrigation systems, farm-to-market roads, and farm structures.

A number of families are still staying in evacuation centers and self-settled campsites/open spaces. PBSP will respond, particularly in Abra and Benguet, by providing family packs valued at Php 5,000.00/ US$89 that will consist of food and non-food items.

Each pack will contain, at the minimum, the following items:

– 15ft x 15ft tent/tarp
– Family mat
– Blankets (2)
– 10 kilos of rice
– ½ kilo brown sugar
– 50g coffee
– 1 pack of biscuit
– 5 cans of sardines
– 5 cans of corned beef
– 1/2 kilo iodized salt
– 6L bottled water
– 1 bath soap

We hope that you can join us in this campaign.
