1.    Operations in the Municipality of Borongan (Typhoon Ruby)

Typhoon Ruby hit the Municipality of Borongan last December 2014 and resulted in loss of lives and damaged properties and livelihood.  COSCA, in partnership with an alumnus of DLSU and field personnel from De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) provided calamity assistance to a total of 730 households from barangays Nena San Julian and Oras. Local youth volunteers from the brgy helped in the re-packing and distribution of family packs.

2.    Efforts in Brgy Apolonio Samson, Quezon City (Fire)

Approximately 2,000 families in Kaingin Bukid, West River Side, Brgy. Apolonio Samson, Quezon City lost their homes due to a massive fire early this year.  COSCA, in partnership with a local Peoples’ Organization provided relief assistance to a total of 273 families.
