Let's Help Malabon Fire Survivors

A massive fire in Malabon razed over 500 houses earlier this week, displacing about 1,500 families in a World Vision-assisted area in Barangays Catmon and Tonsuya. Based on initial reports, almost 5,000 residents are now temporarily sheltered in 3 evacuation centers. As of writing, another fire engulfed the next sitio and burned down at least 25 more houses. World Vision currently supports at least 1,500 children through child sponsorship and development programs in Malabon. World Vision staff is currently at the site to account for and ensure the safety of all World Vision sponsored children in the area.

World Vision has already deployed a team to coordinate with government and community partners to identify and assess the pressing needs of the families in the evacuation centers. The government and some generous groups have initially provided relief support like food and clean drinking water among others. However, with the influx of evacuees, surviving families have also expressed the need for sleeping materials, cooking/kitchen utensils, hygiene and shelter materials to rebuild their homes.

In this regard, World Vision is appealing to our kind and generous hearts to help them provide immediate emergency relief as World Vision targets to assist at least 1,500 families in Malabon. World Vision will also be setting up Women and Child Friendly Spaces in the affected areas and provide breast feeding and hygiene kits to affected families.

Today is the best time to share our love and hope to our fellow Filipinos who are in most urgent need. We can make our donations for the following:

Blanket set (mosquito net, blankets, and sleeping Mats)
(P1,000 per family)

Kitchen kit (frying pan, bowls, and spoons and forks)
(P1,500 per family)
