JANUARY 23, 2021 — As part of the CORA Cares relief operations for communities affected by the devastating typhoons of 2020, Communities Organized for Resource Allocation (CORA), in partnership with the youth-led organization Tulong Kabataan, distributed 230 relief packs containing 5 kilos of rice, 5 canned goods, 1 kilo sugar, 1 kilo salt, 50g coffee, 1 pack bihon, and 1 kilo munggo beans to families of Brgy. Dipusu, San Mariano, Isabela, and 112 sacks of fertilizers to farmers of Brgy. Manalo, Amelung, Cagayan as part of the early rehabilitation program.
Typhoon Ulysses in November 2020 caused massive flooding in Cagayan and Isabela that submerged homes and displaced thousands of residents.
Many communities in San Mariano, Isabela are easily flooded from typhoons and heavy rains. Residents, especially from far-flung areas, are hardly reached by relief.
Sacks of fertilizers were distributed to farmers in Brgy. Manalo, Amulung, Cagayan to help restore their livelihood.
“We would like to extend our utmost gratitude to CORA for partnering with us and making it possible for us to extend our operations to more communities in Cagayan and Isabela,” Patricia Gumpal, of Tulong Kabataan Santiago City, shared.
CORA’s Typhoon Ulysses relief operation drive was made possible through generous donations to CORA’s Typhoon Relief Campaign.
