Noynoy, Mar call for more donations on Typhoon Ondoy victims

Liberal Senators Noynoy Aquino and Mar Roxas today called for more donations, especially of rice and water, as Operation Tulong Bayan intensified its relief operations to reach more families victimized by Tropical Storm Ondoy.
Nakaalis na si Ondoy, pero marami pang kailangang gawin, marami pang buhay ang aayusin, marami pang kailangang iahon sa pinsala. Kakayanin natin ito. Malalampasan natin ito, basta’t tulong-tulong tayo,” Aquino said.
Aquino added that the most needed items are rice, water, canned goods and clothes. Other goods like instant noodles, snacks and others are also accepted, as well as donations in cash.

The Operation Tulong Bayan relief center is in Balay, Expo Centro (formerly Seafood Market), EDSA corner General McArthur St., Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City, inside the parking lot fronting the fruit section of Farmers Market. Hotline numbers: 0908-657-9998, 913-7122, 913-6254 and 913-3306.

Goods could also be dropped off at 2314 Pasong Tamo Ext. (Dasma side), Makati; between Cantinetta and Makati Faith Christian School. Tel.No. 7108804 (Rosanna) 0917-8305053, (Cris) 09178435137. For donations in cash, please contact the said hotlines.

As of September 30, Operation Tulong Bayan has distributed relief packs to more than 34,000 families in 45 areas in Metro Manila, Rizal and Bulacan since operations started on September 27. Around 1,000 volunteers, mostly from they youth, come to the relief center every day to help in packaging and distributing relief goods.
Sabi ng iba, ang mga Pinoy daw naghahatakan pababa, may crab mentality. Nakita natin na hindi ito totoo. Sa trahedyang dala ni Ondoy, nakita natin ang kakayahan ng Pinoy. Hindi pa rin po natutupok ang apoy ng Bayanihan sa ating mga puso,” Roxas said.
