I am Sandy, 37 years old, from Tacurong, Philippines. I am asking support for Makilala people which is just an hour away from my place.
Today, everyone in the Philippines are helping out by donating relief items. This is me (standing, farthest left)
The town of Makilala, North Cotabato Province was rocked by successive strong earthquakes 6.5-magnitude that destroyed a lot of homes and building structures, groceries, markets, and businesses. Even utilities are down so people have no access to food and water.
Due to the risk of landslides, majority of people are camped out of their houses or in evacuation centers and the resources there are tight.
People need water and food and other important necessities to get through each day. The situation there is dire and there is a need to provide clean water.
I went there and I distributed 300 relief packs to 300 families using my savings and donations from friends.
Relief pack we've been distributing consist of Hygiene Packs and Food Packs:
That is why I am asking for help from the international community so that we can raise more funds to reach out people not just in Makilala North Cotabato but in Magpet, Tulunan and Kidapawan City.
Rebuilding and rehabilitation for 21,000 destroyed homes would take years and people cannot go back to their homes yet. I do hope your donations will ease their burden.
I would be happy if you could use the [Help by sharing] button to share about my project!
