, , Leave a comment

Lambaguhon Area was the first point of impact of the rampaging flood caused by typhoon Sendong.

A group of 15 kindhearted volunteers led by Jeddy Andam from One for Iligan Movement initiated by Iligan Bloggers Society, Inc. went to Purok Adelfa in Lambaguhon Area to give hot arroz caldo, sleeping matte and blanket to about 70 people.
