Condoms and other survival tools, Filipino style

In times of distress, Filipino ingenuity rises to the occasion.

In operations to help people in distress, rescuers are using ordinary household items and even rubbish to get people to safety.

And they have found a use for condoms that Catholic bishops would surely approve— keeping their gadgets dry.

  • On Wednesday, rescuers who waded into the floods used their bodies and household items to ferry people in flooded communities.

    Lieutenant Jayson Diciano of the Philippine Coast Guard said he and his team used Styrofoam, slippers, nets and bamboo sticks to build a stretcher. The team used it to carry a 19-year-old resident of Malabon who was injured.

    Diciano said he and his team also carried people on their backs.

  • Anything that floats

    Those who could walk to safety used anything that floats—pails, plastic tubs, driftwood, banana trunks, discarded Styrofoam blocks—to survive the floods.

    “This is Filipino ingenuity. When it comes to this kind of situation, we should use all available means,” Diciano said.

  • Cell phones in condoms

    “We can’t expect every household to have response equipment,” he added.

    Rescuers from the Philippine National Police Maritime Group used condoms to keep their gadgets dry.

    “Do you have one more condom?” one rescuer asked a colleague before boarding a truck to Barangay (village) Sienna in Quezon City, where floodwaters had reached up to roof level.

    He was one of dozens of rescuers from the Maritime Group and from the Air Force-trained group Search and Rescue Auxiliary Group Inc. (Saragi) who were proud to pioneer the use of condoms in protecting cell phones and cameras from getting wet in the rain.

  • “Hindi lang pangpamilya, pang gadgets pa—not only for family planning but also for gadget protection,” said Fred Biloy, a volunteer from Saragi.

    “Using condoms is the cheapest way to make small gadgets like phones and cameras waterproof,” he said.

    “It can hold water,” he added. “I’m not sure when we started doing this. [But it] had passed on to others because it worked.”

    On Taft Avenue, pedicab drivers and commuters used pieces of old billboards to protect themselves from the rain. Large plastic bags became raincoats for others.
