A Call for Donations to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines
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.
