MANILA, Philippines – Residents of a barangay in Pasig are in need of help as flood waters have yet to subside in that part of the city.

Francis Tolentino, chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), on Saturday appealed to good-hearted Pinoys to help and reach out to residents of Barangay Pinagbuhatan in Pasig City.

“Ang concern natin, may bahagi ng Pasig na hindi masyadong naiulat. Yung Barangay Pinagbuhatan ng Pasig. Noong Ondoy po, ito yung huling nawalan ng tubig,” Tolentino said.

From an ocular he made while on board a helicopter, Tolentino said he saw the barangay still flooded.

“Nananwagan po tayo sa mabubuting puso kung sinong gustong makatulong sa Barangay na yun sa Pasig, kailangan din nila ng tulong,” he said. dzMM
