Aid to the victims
Just two days short of New Year celebrations, 500 families in Arlegui Street, Quiapo, Manila lost their homes to a fire. Responding to the “cry of the poor,” the Talangpaz Outreach – ARCORES Filipinas with the Frontliner Sisters gave aid to the victims last January 1, 2023.
The AR Sisters, with the help of the community of St. Rita College- Manila, Inc. and its Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), the Augustinian Recollect priests, OH Brothers, benefactors and volunteers, served hot meals for the victims.
At least 2,000 of them received the meal with drinking water, a brief respite as they sorted out what could still be salvaged from the charred remains of their homes.
