“I feel so hopeless whenever I remember what happened. Our cattle drowned because we need to ensure the safety of our families first,” says Victor Dela Cruz.
For people in Cagayan, things were so hard straight after the typhoon. They had almost nothing. In addition to the tragic loss of life and widespread damage to homes and infrastructures, the massive flooding brought by Typhoon Ulysses and the opening of the dam’s floodgates has also skirted the region’s livestock-rich areas, affecting the livelihoods of many farmers and cattle owners.
Thanks to our off-roader volunteers and partners, Victory Fort Bonifacio, Victory Tuguegarao, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Operation Blessing has delivered humanitarian assistance to many of our affected kababayans in Amulung, Cagayan Valley. Food bags, hygiene kits, and shelter materials were given to supply their basic needs.
Our team also reached out to families in despair with the love of Christ by ministering His Word and praying for them. “We are hoping that someone would help us start over again,” says Victor.
