A Call for Donations to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines
Monday November 11, 2013 12:18 by Akbayan (Citizens Action Party)
Akbayan Partylist, through its #Akbayanihan Relief Drive, is again calling on the public for donations and volunteers to help the victims of super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda).
According to reports, the storm’s path decimated entire towns leaving hundreds of thousands of families displaced and injured, with the death toll expected to climb as high as 10,000.
We have seen the horrific devastation. Let us now close ranks and help each other.
Donations in cash and kind
For donations in kind, we are specifically requesting bottled water, powdered milk, medicines (anti-biotics, wound care supplies and pain relievers), toiletries, clothing and footwear. Please send them to Akbayan’s National Office at 36B Madasalin St. Sikatuna Village, Quezon City.
For donations in cash, please send it directly to Akbayan Citizens' Action Party, Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), Kalayaan branch 1991 0086 55. Financial donations will be used to address the relief and rehabilitation needs of the typhoon victims. We request that you email the validated deposit slip to email@example.com for proper acknowledgment. You may also opt to fax it to (632) 433 6831.
We are specifically calling for two types of volunteers: 1) Medical Volunteers such as doctors, nurses, medical students and/or any other medical giver who are ready to serve, and 2) All-around Volunteers who can help in preparing food packs, transporting and distributing relief foods, assisting in rescue and recovery, etc.
Volunteers must be ready to travel (by air or sea) and stay for at least a week in areas severely affected by the typhoon such as Region 7 (Daang Bantayan and Bantayan) and Region 8 (Tacloban, Palo, Ormoc, Dulag, Tolosa, Guiuan etc.)
