Pinoys in Kuwait Launch Drive For Philippines Flood Victims
Filipino organizations and individuals launched on Wednesday a fund drive to help over two million people who were affected by the floods in Metro Manila and other nearby provinces in the Philippines.
Those who attended the meeting, spearheaded by Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Monching Atanacio at the Holy Family Cathedral in Kuwait City, agreed unanimously that cash donations from various groups and individuals is the easiest and fastest way to extend help to flood victims who were left homeless and with no food due to the incessant heavy rains brought by the southwest monsoon.
“Nanawagan ako sa lahat ng ating kababayan na naririto sa Kuwait na sana’y buksan natin ang puso’t isipan upang tayo’y makatulong ng malaki sa mga nangangailangan na ngayon, mga kapwa natin na nasalanta ng kalamidad,” Fr. Monching said.
Those who want to hand in their cash donations may give it through their respective organizations or directly call Fr. Monching at 60494080.
The Filipino organizations agreed that all cash donations collected will be sent to the Philippines thru the Archdiocese of Manila.
Meanwhile, the Pinoy Ambulance Nurses in Kuwait (PANIK) volunteered to oversee the donation of relief goods.
“Kami po sa PANIK, Pinoy Ambulance Nurses in Kuwait, ay nakikiisa sa layuning makatulong sa ating mga kababayan na nasalanta ng pagbaha. Sa ating mga kababayan na nais na magbigay ay open arms kami na tatanggap na ibibigay ninyong damit o canned goods. Pwede po kayong makipag coordinate sa amin sa Pinoy Ambulance Nurses in Kuwait sa numero 66354184,” PANIK President Hengie Taton said.
