Support the collection and distribution of relief goods and the physical and personal recovery in Manila by the Disaster Management Response Program of De La Salle University.
The rainfall brought by the southwest monsoon to Metro Manila and nearby areas, within a three day period resulted in a disastrous situation for its residents.This calamity has caused tremendous loss for Filipinos. Families have lost their homes and are currently in evacuation centers. The most urgent needs include potable water, medicine, food, and clothes.
The organization has four main programs, the community development, curriculum integration, institutional advocacy, and social awareness, formation and action.
While the project is currently engaged in the collection and deployment of relief goods, Sagip Metro aims to eventually rebuild affected communities and enable them to adopt a more pro-active, integrated approach to disaster management.
