PHILIPPINES – Amid the continuous activity of Mt. Mayon, ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc., with the assistance of Sun Life Philippines Foundation, continues to extend a helping hand to thousands of evacuees, who are still seeking shelter in different evacuation sites in Albay, by giving them relief packs and hot meals.
More than 6,100 individuals, who are unable to consume full meals due to lack of ingredients and equipment, were served with freshly cooked food via the Sagip Kapamilya Mobile Kitchen.
Over 1,800 families were also given relief packs consisting of rice, canned goods, toiletries, and cleaning materials.
“Delikado talaga yan. Ang Bulkang Mayon hindi natin alam. Ang sisihan laging nasa huli,” said Aldrin Luna, who left his home and livelihood due to the eruption, in a TV Patrol report.
He also thanked ABS-CBN Foundation for the help they have given.
“Maraming salamat sa tulong niyo. Salamat sa pagpunta dito sa barangay namin at sana marami pang mapuntahan niyo na nag-evacuate din na mga baryo,” he added.
ABS-CBN still accepts cash donations through their authorized bank accounts and mobile wallets GCash, Maya, and PayPal via QR codes. Donation vouchers are also available in Shopee and Lazada. In-kind donations are accepted via the ABS-CBN Foundation Sagip Kapamilya Warehouse.
Donors are encouraged to call the warehouse first before dropping off their in-kind donations by contacting Arlan Acebedo or Pat Salonga (09695196436). Visit this post for more details on how to donate.
