Relief Delivery Operations banner
Two project staff members from Civic Force arrived in Manila on November 15th and immediately conducted a meeting with its local partner organization CDRC to coordinate the financial and logistical operations of delivering relief goods to Leyte. Procurement of relief goods have begun in Manila and repacking will proceed as supplies arrive. Droves of volunteers are gathering at the CDRC headquarters to help pack goods, mobilize human and financial resources from local entities, and help in administration and finance matters. Civic Force and CDRC are coordinating with their staff who are on the ground in Cebu and Tacloban to gather information regarding areas that have not been served, security situation, and most importantly, logistics. Civic Force staff will head to Cebu in a few days to prepare the transportation of the relief packs and emergency tents to Leyte. 1,900 families are targeted to benefit from the relief packs, which will contain rice, dried fish and sardines, hygiene kits, sleeping mats, blankets and plastic sheets.
