Let’s help our kababayans!
A succession of typhoons has affected many Filipinos in various areas. After experiencing the brunt of Typhoon Ulysses, which came about a week after Typhoon Rolly, countless citizens have become homeless, suffered damages, and require immediate assistance. Although several groups and organizations have been organizing various relief operations – there is much more to be done.
If you’re interested to donate, here is a list of organizations who have initiated donation drives to help out communities in hard-hit areas:
1. Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation
The Yellow Boat of Hope started out helping children who used to swim to school in the mangrove village of Layag-Layag, Brgy. Talon-Talon, Zamboanga City. Today, they continue their mission to improve children’s access to education and ensure the students get to school quickly and safely — all while staying dry during typhoon season. They pool their resources to build schools and provide scholarships, medical and dental missions, livelihood programs, and school supplies.
