“I am just hoping that those of you who had been raising funds to help the Yolanda victims in northern Cebu Province (especially in Bogo City, where I’m also one of the unfortunate victims), will come directly to our aid and assist us, physically, emotionally, and socially, instead of channeling your funds to government agencies who are making money out of donated relief goods, esp. those coming from foreign countries. I can lead you to communities and groups who are in dire need of your material help and psychosocial support. Thank you very much in advance!”

Anyone from Calbayog and Catbalogan who can assist a group of doctors who will be providing medical services in Samar (Basey, Calbayog, Catbalogan)? Anyone that can provide written instructions to the team on what to do once We need someone to meet some doctors at Calbayog airport tomorrow at 6.30am tomorrow (Thursday) and possibly guide and transport them to Catbalogan and then Basey. Or give him written instructions on how to get from Calbayog to Catbalogan, where he’ll meet up with a convoy coming in with other doctors from Manila. Please post on this page or send us a private message on FB if you can help out. Thanks, all!
Here’s the request received by Kusog member Myla Zerda:
I’m Dr Darby Santiago of UPCM. My group, S.O.S, will be leaving PGH by land at 1pm today. They are headed for Basey, Samar. Dr Maya Santos and myself will be flying to Calbayog at 530am tomorrow. Arriving there 630. We’re planning to wait for the convoy at Catbalogan Gen Hospital so we can bring relief medicines there and help out while waiting. Do you have people in the Calbayog to Catbalogan are who can assist us? We’re not familiar with the place. Pwede rin written instructions na lang kung paano kami kikilos pagdating dun. Salamat. –Darbs
Villamor Air Base: evacuee operations #YolandaPH #reliefPH
POSTED ON November 19, 2013 AT 8:00 am
The call for volunteers is ongoing for Villamor Air Base, 24 hours a day.
You may sign up online as volunteer, or sign up as cook or kitchen assistant for the hot meals kitchen set up by Art Relief Mobile Kitchen, or if you are with car and can drive sign up for Oplan Hatid to bring evacuees wherever they might have family in Manila (and beyond). They’ve also called for therapists and counsellors for traumatized survivors, breastfeeding mothers to become wet nurse for infant survivors, and toys and slippers for child-survivors.
On the evening of the 18th, at around 10:00PM, we dropped off plastic spoons and forks, styrobowls and cups for the kitchen and decided to go around to look at where we might be needed. We hadn’t signed up for anything but figured it would be obvious where there was a demand for volunteers.
The volunteer sign-up tent (yes you can sign up on site, too!) was full of volunteers-to-be. The kitchen was just done cooking the last hot meal which was being distributed to new arrivals from Tacloban. We walked to the tent for Oplan Hatid, and found it didn’t lack in drivers with cars, and what was in fact called for at that point were a new batch of dispatchers — a job that three girls readily raised their hands for.
But for sure there are times of the day, and certain days, when there are just not enough volunteers. So whenever you have some free time, do pass by Villamor Air Base. Sign up online for later in the week, but go there if / when you’ve got time to spare today. Bring some relief goods, bring some food for cooking for the kitchen, bring your car (and driver if you have one).

“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!”
