JULY 23,2018 as the thyphoon josie passes the province of occidental mindoro(Philippines), the heavy downpour of rain makes the river overflow superfast that infrastructure such as dikes, spilway, bridges, and the likes were washed out and caused flash flood to various areas in the province. Most houses was under water and people are being evacuated to a safe and higher ground.
Being a private and concerned citizen, i would like to initiate this fund raising to help the affected people. The funds we can collect will be used to buy basic needs such as food and clothing. I am in contact with a local representative on the updated numbers of affected families. (Will update once firm figures are received)
As a background, i was born and raised in Mamburao Occidental Mindoro. Now living and working in Antipolo City Rizal. Once or twice a year, i make sure to visit my hometown. And in the past 6 years, i have an outreach project called "Project KKK" that is providing school supplies to the minority kids in Mamburao.
On this ocassion, i feel that i should do my part in helping my Kababayans on their struggle. I hope that we be hand in hand in uplifting the spirit of the affected individuals.
