Help for Banago typhoon victims-A A +A
Wednesday, December 4, 2013
FOCUS has been given to victims of super typhoon Yolanda in the farthest and most affected areas. After extending its support to the most affected areas, officers and members of the Rotary Club of Bacolod South extended rehabilitation efforts by donating rebuilding materials to the affected residents of Barangay Banago in Bacolod City.
Club President Tata Lacson commissioned two Rotarians to identify the victims. Fellow club member Rotarian Glen Daraug, who is the commander of the Philippine Coast Guard Station in Bacolod City, and Doc Chris Sorongon joined muscles for the rebuilding activities.
The donation of building materials like G.I. sheets, lumber and plywood were handed to recipients during the turn-over rites held at the Banago Barangay Hall. Bacolod City First Lady Patching Puentevella joined the Rotarians and handed out relief bags to the typhoon victims.
Among those who also supported the Rotary Club are the Lamblight Catholic School, Mariton Limsiaco, Joseph and Doris Caña, Patt and Teresa Macaya, Third and Jaimee Lizares, and the Trailee Filipino Community in County Kerry, Ireland through their community president Roel Villones.
“We are here to extend help as we were not affected the way the others were. So our club members are giving their best to help as many in our desire to serve others above self,” Lacson said.
