Caritas is appealing for funds to help families in the Philippines, many of whom are living in temporary evacuation centres following massive floods.
Heavy rains in early August left over 100 people dead and hundreds of thousands of families without shelter and food. Conditions are still very difficult with food scarce and many people unable to return home.
Caritas will care for over 6000 families in five dioceses, providing food, hygiene items and cooking utensils. The cost of the two-month programme will be 352,050 euro.
