Turnover of Donation to Typhoon "Yolanda"
Affected Police Units in Eastern Visayas
PNPFI Typhoon Haiyan-Yolanda Project
Typhoon Haiyan, known asTyphoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was a powerful tropical typhoon that devastated Eastern Visayas on November 8, 2013. It is the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing thousands of people in that region. Haiyan/Yolanda is also the strongest storm recorded to make landfall.
Typhoon Yolanda has set back the Philippine National Police in almost five regions based on the reports from Police Regional Offices 4b, 6, 7, 8, and CARAGA (13). These are damages in infra structures and equipment such as vehicles, communication equipment, firearms and ammunition, office computers and appliances, among others.
The PNPFI has diverted funds for all approved projects for the first two quarters of FY 2013-14 to the PNP units affected by the super typhoon.
As our Vice Chair Ms Teresita Ang See has said, we are enabling or empowering our police units in the affected areas to help their fellow countrymen even as they and their families are likewise victims of this typhoon. We are turning them into resources rather than consumers of aid.
Again, as in the past, the Foundation's partners immediately heed the call to help those who serve and protect. NORKIS GROUP through Mr. Louie Quisumbing was among the first to share their resources by immediately donating ten motorcycles to address the needs of the PNP in the typhoon affected areas. When additional mobility was needed by the PNP, the Norkis Group donated 10 more motorcycles. These motorcycles have a total market value of PhP 270,000.00
Other groups willingly shared their blessings by donating cash to the Foundation to supplement the funds intended for those affected police units in the Visayas.
The AIM-MBM Class 1980 in which our Trustee/Executive Director, PDir Victor G Batac PNP (Ret)and Trustee Ramon L. Lim belong donated PhP 112,000.00 cash.
The AIM-MBM Class 1980:
|1. Angel Tamayo||PhP 3,000.00|
|2. Victor G. Batac||10,000.00|
|4. Philip K.C. Ng||36,000.00|
|5. Ramon L. Lim||43,000.00|
Another alumni, Ms Maritess Bo-ot, General Manager of the DE LOS SANTOS-STI MEGA CLINICat SM Megamall passed the hat among employees and partners and came up with PhP 72,000.00.
In all, our partners shared PhP 454,000.00 for this project.
