Last November 11-17, 2013, ICI-Iligan students, MSU-IIT Students and Alumni, SDRT (Sendong Dynamic Response Team) with Mr. Ernesto Empig and Ms. Venus Pamirsana, Chairman Chancellor Tanggol and with our fellow Filipinos here in Iligan joined forces to help the victims caused by Typhoon Haiyan or known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda. The team gathered aid by collecting relief goods, donation and in “Cash Piso-Piso para sa mga biktima sa Yolanda Project.” ICI-Iligan student, Louie Ordeniza and other members of SDRT made some actions by collecting donations by routing room to room in ICI-Iligan buildings. Through sincere offerings by the students, Louie said “I am very grateful that there are still many students showed their sympathies and condolences by donating relief goods”. ICI-Iligan with the President, Mr. Ladislao Tabanao Jr., donated some relief goods and cash at MSU-IIT Relief Center. SBO officers, Hizam, Mark Lyster, Zham and Louie together with the Red Cross Team stayed for a week to help packing and sorting the donated goods to deliver them to the victims in Visayas.
The aid may not last for a lifetime, but at least, it may ease the victims for a little while they are still in trauma, helpless and homeless. The material things will fast be consumed while it will take a while to settle down in the most comfortable way. With whatever they will received today, deep in their heart that’s the biggest thing you can ever do to them this time of in dire need.
Let’s continue helping the victims of Typhoon Yolanda!
