Davao City's Forgotten Flood Victims

For three months now, some 100 people are still in evacuation center at the San Lorenzo Ruiz Parish in Talomo District in Davao City in Mindanao after their houses were washed away by the flash flood late this June. The City Government of Davao have already handed P10,000 in aid but is not enough to help the refugees rebuild their house and buy food and daily needs. Just like mothers Jennelyn Surigao, Editha Abarquez and Analiza Castigador, many are still hoping to return to their areas soon and live a normal life again. (AKP Images / Keith Bacongco)
