Mindanao – DAA Responds As Another Quake Hits

DAA has been responding to the 16th October Mindanao Earthquake by supporting our long term partner the Balay Mindanaw Peace Foundation.

Kaloy of Balay Mindanaw handing over DAA tarpaulins to the Vice Mayor.

Over the last few days they travelled to the Municipality of Tulunan to meet Vice Mayor Maureene Villalor.

From there they then travelled a further 70 km to Barangay Magbok, one of the barangays hardest hit by the October 16th earthquake.

This remote barangay is located near the Tulunan-Mlang-Magsaysay quake epicenter.

Kaloy Manlupig of Balay Mindanaw handed over Disaster Aid Australia tarpaulins to be used as temporary shelter for kindergarten and elementary school children whose classrooms were severely damaged by the quake.

A number of tents were also handed over.

Now a further major Quake has hit the area.
