Philippines Floods – Mabuhay! PCC Cares

A natural disaster has hit the Philippines. During the week of Aug. 11, 2012, monsoon rains fell for more than 24 hours and has affected 2 million people, including family and friends of Mabuhay PCC members, and caused 49 deaths. Eighty cities including Manila are still under severe floods.

Mabuhay! Philippine Cultural Community has collected money toward the Philippine Red Cross. Since the hype of flooding, more than 900 Philippine Red Cross staff and volunteers were mobilized for rescue, relief and medical operations.
