MANILA, PHILIPPINES (ABS CBN News) - Singer Gary Valenciano took time out of his busy schedule to help and show his support to the victims of tropical storm Sendong in Mindanao.

Valenciano, the UNICEF Philippine ambassador, and his wife Angeli and son Paulo visited evacuation centers in Iligan City on Thursday.

Aside from donating relief goods, Valenciano patiently listened to the stories of the children as flood hit their towns.

"We have to play our role here and very sensitive doon sa mga pangangailangan ng mga bata, especially the children who have no longer their parents around," Valenciano told ABS-CBN News.

Valenciano and UNICEF aims to help the children recover from trauma brought by the tragic event.

One way is to distribute recreational kits as part of the childrenís stress-debriefing.

"Short term is fine but unless we start focusing on what's going on with children and even parents we're gonna be in for probably another disaster," Trevor Clark, over-all emergency coordinater, UNICEF Philippines said.

Meanwhile, young actor-singer Sam Concepcion went to Cagayan de Oro also to visit the storm victims.
