In the Philippines, heavy rains and floods claimed the lives of more than 60 people in early August. The worst flooding in the Philippines since 2009 also affected St. Martin de Porres.

Fortunately stilts and a small dike kept the children’s homes and church dry. But floods affected the fish pools. Luckily, many of the fish were already harvested so not too many were lost. The goats and pigs are all fine.
