A couple of days after consecutive heavy rains in the first week of August 2012, low-lying areas of Metro Manila and nearby provinces were submerged in water. Some churches were flooded others became an evacuation centers for families affected. Immediate needs like food, clothing, clean water and medicines surfaced right away,
C.A.R.E.S. Team of SELD with the help of sponsors and ministry partners and churches responded right away after affected areas became accessible. Right now the team is still in the process of reaching communities, brethren, and families who were victims especially those who are still in water up to this time.

Goods like; rice, grocery items, used clothing, bottled water, medicines, mattresses, blankets and other specified items.
