PRC Assists a Pregnant Woman in the Midst of Typhoon Juan’s Assault
Apparently, a pregnant 26-year-old woman from Sitio Japan named Melissa Donato was then having an impending delivery, and was in need of immediate transportation to the nearest hospital in the midst of Typhoon Juan’s assault. At once, PRC Pangasinan Chapter deployed one of its teams to assist the vulnerable lady. They safely transported her from their home to Region I Medical Center.
In San Fabian, Pangasinan, on the other hand, PRC Pangasinan Chapter Emergency Response Unit (ERU) found 29-year-old Anna Vidal together with her two children—AJ Vidal, 4 years old and Ogie Vidal, 2 years old—lifeless inside their collapsed house. Unfortunately, a tree uprooted by Typhoon
Juan’s strong winds fell over their humble abode, which instantly caused their demise. Immediately, PRC Pangasinan Chapter coordinated with the concerned local government unit for necessary assistance in recovering the bodies of the victims.
Meanwhile, now that Typhoon Juan is on its way out of the Philippines’ area of responsibility, PRC National Headquarters and La Union, Benguet, Kalinga and Baguio City Chapters are currently working double-time in repacking relief goods that are bound for distribution. And in order to cater to the vulnerable victims’ immediate need for food, PRC also provided supplemental feeding of hot meals in Cavite and Pangasinan, where they were able to serve 426 and 893 persons, successively.
