Bayanihan Press Release to APU

November 13, 2013


On November 8, 2013, super typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the central islands of thePhilippines. It is considered to be one of the most powerful typhoons in recorded history as its devastating impact proves. The typhoon affected 41 out of the 80 provinces in thePhilippinescosting USD 14 Billion to the nation’s economy. Close to two thousand people are confirmed dead and countless more are still missing. Those who have survived the onslaught currently lack food, potable water, and shelter.

We, the Filipino community in APU, would like to convey our deepest gratitude to our professors, classmates and friends who have expressed their concern for us and our family and friends in thePhilippines. Their well-wishes have provided us with comfort during this time of grief. Although most of us are not directly affected by the typhoon, we believe that it is our duty to help our fellow countrymen.

For this reason, we are currently organizing a few projects to raise funds for the victims of the typhoon. One of which is the Bayanihan Haiyan Aid Committee wherein we collect monetary donations from those eager to extend financial assistance for the relief efforts in our country. Our booth can be found at the APU Cafeteria, which is open until November 22. Inquiries regarding the projects and any form of help which you can provide are most welcomed.  

Thank you very much.
