Caritas Manila and Sto. Niño De Baseco Parish is preparing reliefs for the victims of the fire that broke last March 4, 2022, at Baseco, Tondo Manila.
“Kanina po umaga alas otso napakaaga ng sunog mna nangyari dito sa baseco lahat nagulat… Nasa second alarm lang po pero marami pa din pamilya ang naapektuhan kasi ang bahay dito sa area na nasunugan dikit-dikit at maraming nakatira,” said Bonna Bello, a representative of Caritas Manila from St. Niño de Baseco Parish, in an interview with Radyo Veritas.
According to her, they are coordinating with the Parish Volunteers for immediate assistance to the fire victims.
“Kanina umaga hanggang sa ngayon patuloy kami naka monitor sa area para sa mga affected families,” she added.
The fire had reached second alarm and was immediately put under control. Authorities have yet to determine the cost of damage to property and the cause of the fire.
Caritas Manila’s relief operation will be 25 to 48 hours after the incident which is also part of the Caritas Damayan Fire Responsive Protocol. (Fatima Llanza/RCAM-AOC)
