As a consequence of the La Niña, heavy rainfalls in marshy areas have led to flooding an entire community in Ulandang, Philippines. Prolonged flooding has a number of negative impacts, such as devastation of crops ready to be harvested leading to lack of food supply, sanitation problems leading to illness, and damaged shelters whether on land or on stilts. Please pray that immediate needs would be met as the local people adapt to this situation of crisis, as well as for safety and protection as people lose their homes and livelihoods as a result of the flooding.
