One hundred packs of relief goods such as rice, water, and easy open canned goods were sent over to Barangay Catmon in Malabon where fire razed an urban poor community and left over a thousand families homeless while 500 packs were turned over to the province of Surigao del Norte which was severely affected by the recent 6.7-magnitude earthquake. Surigao City, which also suffered from the effects of the earthquake, received 200 relief packages.
