A woman shows a stuffed toy she found in a pile of debris at Provident village in the town of Marikina, east of Manila on October 26, 2009, one month after the village was hit by massive floodings caused by heavy rains brought about by tropical storm Ketsana. About 1,000 people died due to two storms that hit the Philippines in the last month. Over 162,000 people are still housed in makeshift evacuation centres because some of their homes are still flooded from rain brought on by Ketsana and typhoon Parma, the civil defence office said, and authorities are now fighting a water-borne bacterial infection that has so far claimed nearly 150 in the aftermath of the devastation.
