Our organization, Sagip Bayan, are currently doing volunteer work in Marikina helping people clean up and rebuild their damaged or destroyed homes.

We have been cited by the local government of Marikina as one of the first NGO’s to come to the city to help in the clean up and the rehabilitation of the houses that were destroyed or damaged.

We will provide a team of volunteer medical doctors and nurses to help treat the injured and the sick scheduled to go to city on September 30, 2009.  For medicines, we will need antibiotics, antifungal preparations, anti-hypertesives, vitamins, antiseptics, cough preparations, plasters, band aids, and others.   For food, we would prefer to receive donations of prepared non-refrigerated packaged food including infant food preparations.

We look forward to your favorable answer to our request for help.
