Aid supplies on the way to Manila from Singapore Red Cross


The Singapore Red Cross (SRC) is sending $100,000 worth of relief supplies to flood victims in Manila.

Comprising food items, kitchen utensils, and toiletries, these will be distributed on Monday by SRC volunteers at evacuation centres across the Philippine capital.

Flooding caused by two days of torrential rains - brought on by typhoons Saola, Damrey, and Haikui - has driven more than two million people from their homes.

Reports said at least 60 people have died in the floods.
