Kuwait Filipino Community Helps Out To Typhoon Victims

7:03 PM

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited to a meeting at the Philippine Embassy of Kuwait to talk about how to best help the Typhoon Frank victims.

Headed by Vice Consul Oreta, different Filipino clubs/ groups gave out their pledges and other donations. I was and still am amazed on how generous our kababayans were. The embassy suggested that the best way to help is through monetary donations since it will be less bureaucratic (my word) than the medicines and dry goods. Those too are of course very much needed, welcomed and accepted.

Different organizations pledged from 100$ and up. They are also donating old clothes and even boxes and boxes of bottled drinking water. I heard that some even put up a charity event and the proceeds are just for the Typhoon Frank victims.

I was excited to get home and tell the OldPeople about it to execute our helping plans. As of this writing I have managed to round off and making my cousins and other kasambahays to agree to donate their stuffs.

The embassy requests that you inform them of whatever donation you sent for proper acknowledgement purposes only.

I HAVE POSTED BELOW THE DIFFERENT SUGGESTED WAYS THAT WE CAN HELP OUT THE TYPHOON FRANK VICTIMS.

Monetary donations can be deposited to NDCC and Red Cross Philippines. I don't want to post their bank account numbers here but if you do want to donate, you can either contact the embassy or email me. If you want to send other donations and have no idea where to send them, again you can contact the Philippine Embassy of Kuwait or me and I will try to hook you up with Kuya Lino of K Climb who is also organizing donations to be sent.

Thank you for caring! =D
