PAMPANGA, PHILIPPINES (Sun.Star) - The United Nation Children’s Fund (Unicef) has provided assistance to children in flood-affected communities along the Pampanga River.

Leon Dominador Fajardo, Unicef child protection specialist, told Governor Lilia Pineda they wanted to ensure that the children’s needs are met.

Unicef initially provided more than 1,000 packs of relief goods and other basic needs intended for children.

The organization also wants to provide clean water, vaccinations, and basic sanitation to kids in the affected villages.

Unicef has partnered with the government and other United Nation agencies to meet the hygiene, nutrition and primary health needs of children.

In the fourth district of Pampanga, Typhoons Pedring and Queil have left several thousand individuals temporarily homeless, which also led to the destruction of properties and crops.

Pineda lauded officials of Unicef for helping out the children in Pampanga.
