Disaster hits Philippine tribal community June 17, 2019

When a 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit parts of the northern Philippines on April 22, a group of Aeta tribal people came down from their mountain homes to seek shelter in the lowlands. They stayed in makeshift shelters without food until help arrived from a group of church people led by Redemptorist missionaries in Manila.
