“Alalay Albay Project” donation drive for typhoon victims in Albay
UP Albayanos launched the donation drive, “Alalay Albay Project,” for their fellow Albayanos who were badly affected by the Super Typhoon Rolly. The varsitarian non-profit organization aims to help the communities in Albay which are currently struggling to secure food as it is impossible to continue with their livelihood. According to one of the posts in their Facebook page, power and communication lines were cut off while houses and infrastructures were flooded and some were even buried by lahar flow. Their situation leaves thousands of families displaced, and some are now grieving for the lives lost during the disaster.
UP Albayanos are calling on individuals and organizations to support their initiative in order to give aid to the severely affected families in the form of relief goods and meal packs. Here are ways to lend them a helping hand:
