Cagayan de Oro Carmen Bridge Sendong
Last December 16, 2011 at around 12 in the midnight, Tropical Storm Washi (with the local code name Sendong) hit Southern Philippines (Mindanao) and the Western and Central Visayas. The disaster has caused flash floods and landslides and affected 7 regions, 12 provinces, 8 cities, 18 municipalities and 140 barangays. Sendong has left huge devastation displacing 19,759 families or 108,130 persons, damaged houses, assets and livelihoods. Casualties have reached more than 1,000 people both dead and still missing. (NDRRMC Report of December 18, 2011).

Unlad Kabayan has conducted rapid needs assessment in the worst hit cities of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro in Northern Mindanao. The disaster has left the affected areas totally wrecked. Basic needs such as food, medicines, clothing and shelters have become in great demand and in immediate need. To help those affected families and individuals, let us share whatever we want to give them to respond to their needs and contribute towards the immediate recovery and rebuilding of their lives.

Houses in Macasandig, Cagayan de Oro City totally damaged by the flash flood.
