Residents of Kasiglahan Village in Rodriguez, Rizal continue to appeal for aid following the devastation caused by Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco). Ulysses left thousands of individuals calling for food, water, and shelter assistance as parts of the village remain submerged and coated with thick mud and debris.

Environmental group Greenpeace calls for the mobilization of society, led by the government, to respond urgently to the current climate crisis at a scale and speed that would protect Filipinos from worsening climate impacts.
