“One big push for Tigbao, Tacloban!

Volunteers & donors: because of you, we were able to serve thousands of meals in Villamor Airbase for 3 weeks, 24/7.

Now that we will be going to Tigbao where we are needed more, we are again asking for your help. We will be leaving on the 17th (Tues) and hope to collect more food & equipment by this weekend.

Every centavo, slice of bread, ounce of meat, paper cup, etc donated will go a long way in feeding our countrymen in the Visayas.

We will be accepting donations at the Rizal Park Open Air Auditorium tomorrow (Dec 14) from 4:30 pm onwards. Volunteers for the concert and for the Tigbao mission are still welcome (comment below if interested).

Please spread the word. Share this on FB, twitter, by word-of-mouth… Every little bit goes a long way.

This Christmas, let’s work together to bring the most sumptuous hot meals to where we are needed most.”

for Tacloban: call for volunteer mechanics, carpenters, plumbers, tools and utensils donations #YolandaPH #reliefPH

“Update from Paulina Lawsin, who’s in Palo: If there are volunteer carpenters, plumbers, and mechanics, please contact us. People need to start fixing vehicles so they can get up and running, for instance. She also made a call-out to those putting together donations in kind: please also think of sending tools for carpentry work and home do-it-yourself equipment, pots and pans and kitchen utensils for cooking…

Marie Apostol Harvey Pauline thinks it would be good to set up communal “tool boxes” for different areas. We can then encourage people to go back to the bayanihan tradition of neighbors helping to fix or re-build each other’s houses. Donations that will help KUSOG TACLOBAN buy tools to assist this initiative will also be helpful.”

“Friends, please keep looking for volunteers and have them contact us. Joji’s last update: 90 percent of the DSWD staff who were supposed to help with relief efforts became victims of Yolanda themselves and are either homeless or otherwise incapacitated. Nellie Viernes’ post indicated that a big number of Bethany Hospital’s staff suffered the same fate. Tacloban and other towns in Leyte and Samar need people to fill the gap they left. People’s lives depend on the relief effort moving – and moving fast! If you know anyone who wants to pitch in, pm us or post on this page. Salamat!”

Kusog Tacloban: call for cash donations #YolandaPH #reliefPH

If you are looking for a way to help Tacloban, please consider supporting KUSOG TACLOBAN (to give strength to Tacloban), an effort started by Taclobanons with the help of the Filipino Community Center in Hawaii and the FAIR Hiring Initiative in the Philippines. Relief goods and agencies are available to help Leyte and Samar but the lack of manpower is hampering efforts to get that help out.

Kusog Tacloban plans to:
• Recruit volunteers and mobilize them to Tacloban and other hard- hit areas in Leyte and Samar.
• Support ongoing efforts by augmenting the human resources needed to accomplish tasks.
• Coordinate with people on the ground to see who needs what kind of help.
• Match volunteers to tasks and manage the logistics of getting them in and out.

If you would like to help, please make checks payable to:

The Filipino Community Center
94-428 Mokuola St # 302
Waipahu, HI 96797

Donors should write Kusog Tacloban on their checks otherwise it will be lost to another Tacloban effort.

Online donations are accepted via www.filcom.org through its “Donate to Relief Efforts” page. Donors using this option should indicate that they want their donation to go to Kusog Tacloban by sending an email with this wish to filcom@filcom.org AND socrates@fairhiringinc.com.
