|The over 30 Multi-Purpose chapels and churches constructed after Yolanda are now being used as evacuation centers in Visayas including the 23 Caritas RISE! Concert Chapels (funds generated through the concert of Mr. Ryan Cayabyab and Caritas Manila with the help of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Manila Cathedral, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Manila, PLDT-Smart Foundation and One Meralco Foundation).|
|Borongan Bishop Crispin Varquez is asking for help, “Walang masyadong storm surge ngayon, extremely big flooding ang problema tsaka ang hangin, tsaka mga properties ang na-damage, sa casualties mga apat ang confirmed na namatay,(4 confirmed dead)” according to Bishop Varquez. The bishop reported that most of baranagays in Borongan still have no electricity and no mobile or telephone communication. The Diocese is using the satellite phone lent by Caritas Germany. “Kailangan namin dito pagkain, hindi namin kayang tugunan lahat ang needs nila dito sa pagkain, especially sa water kasi nga ang flooding walang potable water, so yung basic lang na pangangailangan ng tao ang need namin, (What we need here is food, we won’t be able to supply all the need for food here, especially water since in the areas flooded, there are no potable water) ” added Bishop Varquez.|
