Following the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses, PHILUSA Corporation handed over much-needed sanitation and hygiene products to displaced families through Manila Water Foundation (MWF)'s Agapay Sanitasyon program.
Sanitation for San Mateo Evac Centers
On November 17, MWF trooped to San Mateo Elementary School, the largest evacuation center in San Mateo, Rizal to deploy Albatross and Cleene products from PHILUSA Corporation. The products would help maintain the cleanliness of the evacuation center since thousands of evacuees are temporarily residing there. Most of the evacuees' homes have not recovered from its damages yet, hence they will be staying in the evacuation center longer.
Around 1,600 families are staying at San Mateo Elementary School, the largest evacuation center in Rizal, after the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses
Rosel Capapas, Early Childhood Care and Development Officer and camp manager at San Mateo Elementary School, said that the donations would be a huge help for the families staying at the center. "Maraming marami pong salamat sa PHILUSA Corporation, Albatross, at Manila Water Foundation. Malaking tulong ito para po sa evacuees po na mahigit po sa 1,600 families (Thank you so much to PHILUSA Corporation, Albatross, and Manila Water Foundation. This is a huge help for the 1,600 families of evacueees here)," she said.
