Since the torrential rains in August 7, Olandes community in Marikina has not received any medical attention. After collecting medicines and commitment from health professionals, Task Force Children of the Storm (TFCS) with donations from Gabriela Women’s Partylist and individuals, conducted its Health and Relief Mission on August 21, 2012.

Doctors, nurses, as well as nursing and social work students spent their holiday in providing health service, relief, porridge meal and fun activities for more than 100 children in the community. While parents wait for their cues, discussion on breastfeeding, health care, children’s rights and disaster preparedness were also conducted by speakers from Salinlahi Alliance for Children’s Concerns, Children’s Rehabilitation Center, Association for the Rights of Children in Southeast Asia and Batibot Children’s Learning Center.
