US-based Bicolana Gears Up to Augment Aid to Albay Typhoon Victims

by


After Typhoons Reming and Milenyo in 2006, Albay province got stuck in continuing calamity. Photos by Dan Daz we posted earlier in this blog show just the lighter side, almost artistic side, of the devastation. We know that the count of victims continue to rise because even with just heavy rains, minus the typhoon, thousands continue to be mass-evacuated in seemingly regular basis. And there is no end to miseries in sight. From America, Divinia Nolasco Ries, who hails from Guinobatan, Albay, sent this encouraging e-mail:


Hello to the new ones, the young ones, and the young once!!
Hey Mickey, this is Vines (Nolasco-Ries) from Indiana, Ibalon batch 73. Pls give my best to Mac Pavia.

I have a favor to ask. I raised a small amount of money for Albay’s typhoon victims through our local Michiana Fil-Am Assoc (FAAM) dito sa Northern Indiana. I was thinking of raising more money to help build toilets sa areas na nagrabe ng typhoon but I got busy. For now, could you, Mac Pavia and Edna give me an idea kung ano ang most important need relating to the typhoon damages. Start with a small project.

Thanks!!!
Vines

Calling on Mighty, Mac Pavia, and Edna.
