Medical Supplies with Hygiene Kits, Various Non-Food Items Reach Apayao

It could not be denied that while food and water are among the primary necessities during disasters, it is also important to provide medical supplies and hygiene kits to affected families as hygiene supplies are the least of the supplies they try to save as they flee from danger.

For this reason, the Department of Health (DOH) CAR has joined the relief efforts to the areas affected by Supertyphoon Lawin, sending medical supplies with hygiene kits, water, plus other non-food essentials in aid of the relief goods brought by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and charity organizations.
