    Following the devastating floods in early August, many Filipinos are still struggling to put food on their tables. On Sunday August 12th, President Benigno Aquino traveled to Montalban Rizal to address thousands of evacuees about the solutions and challenges of severe flooding. Following his speech, the line for relief goods stretched around the block. Many were left unsatisfied with the President's brief appearance. With more rain expected in the coming weeks, tension is rising for those displaced by the floods.
