Soup-er quick response: 48 hours after the onslaught of Typhoon Paeng in Cavite, the Rotaract Club of Cavite Aguinaldo (RAC CA) and Rotary Club of Cavite Aguinaldo (RC CA) immediately spearheaded “Soup-er Quick Response” to provide hot meals for flood-affected communities in Noveleta town.
The two clubs made it possible for about 100 families from two of the largest evacuation centers in the municipality – San Juan II and San Rafael III Elementary School – to enjoy hot meals and the provision of rice packs and eggs from the Mobile Kitchen of the Philippine Army Reserve Command headed by Major General Pelite and Major Matic together with Philippine Rescue Volunteer Association headed by PRVA President JM Oloris.
This was the first quick relief response initiative of the two community-based organizations conducted despite their members also being affected by flooding in the province immediately after Typhoon Paeng (international name: Nalgae) struck the Philippines on the last weekend of October 2022. RC CA President Bobit Benitez thanks those who supported the initiative on short notice.
The next initiative of RAC CA President JC Santos is to raise and secure a Disaster Readiness Fund. Such funding will be utilized to train Filipino youth on disaster readiness, response, mitigation, and recovery, as well as to prepare and preposition needs on the onset of a calamity.
Rotaract District 3810 has also launched “Alagang Rotaract”, a relief operation drive for Typhoon Paeng-stricken communities in Cavite.
On behalf of the district, RAC CA President JC Santos knocks on the kind and generous hearts of everyone to help raise cash and in-kind donations for the relief drive.
In-kind donations can be dropped off at Sophia’s Place, Panapaan 3 in Bacoor, Cavite while cash donations can be sent through the following GCash Numbers:
- Joshua Atayde
0965 677 1125
- Timothy Aliscad

Full details of the relief drive are posted on the Facebook Page of Rotaract Clubs of District 3810 and Rotaract Club of Cavite Aguinaldo.
