Relief Missions Update

We sincerely thank all the donors for your support! This also goes out to the volunteers and the different local organizations we have been coordinating with (Panay Center for Disaster Relief, The UP Silak Brotherhood and UP Silab Sisterhood, and the LGUs). Typhoon Haiyan victims in Tacloban City (Leyte) and Roxas City (Capiz), were the recipients of your kindness and generosity.

Plans are already underway to help out the victims in the Province of Antique as they start to rebuild their houses and their lives.

Thank you very much! Salamat gid!

Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund

haiyan_2013-10-08We need your help! The recent Super Typhoon Haiyan has brought unprecedented destruction to property and suffering to the Filipino people in areas including our hometown Iloilo and the rest of Panay Island. The real extent of death and destruction has yet to unfold because of lack of contact with the worst hit areas. Worst hit are northern Iloilo towns, northern Antique towns, and the whole of Aklan and Capiz Provinces. Let us help lighten the burden of tens of thousands of victims who lost their homes, meager belongings, and are staying in evacuation centers. They are Ilonggos and they are our brothers and sisters too.
