In the spirit of bayanihan, Migrante International today called on its chapters around the world to raise funds in aid of families devastated by typhoon Pedring.
Migrante International launched anew its ‘Sagip-Migrante Fund Drive’ aimed at gathering financial support for victims of typhoon Pedring. Funds will be in support of rescue missions, distribution and delivery of essential goods such as rice, canned goods and bottled water, setting up of soup kitchens and other relief missions to affected areas in Metro Manila and Southern Luzon.
Sagip-Migrante is now open for monetary donations. Support in kind is also welcome; however, goods from overseas may not arrive in time.
All donations may be deposited to Migrante International’s bank account. For details please email email@example.com or call 911-4910.
Relief goods may also be sent to Migrante International’s Home Office: #45 Cambridge St, Cubao, Quezon City.
According to Migrante International chairperson Garry Martinez, it is the task of all overseas Filipinos to cooperate and help our kababayans in times of calamity.
He recounted the successful experience of Sagip-Migrante during typhoon Ondoy wherein “the swift response of our kababayans fostered a broader unity among overseas Filipinos, bringing them closer to the Motherland”.
“We will list the names of donors unless they prefer to be anonymous. The listing will be updated regularly on our website (http://migranteinternational.org),” he said. ###
