RELIEF DRIVES. Mindanao-based organizations take initiative in launching donation drives for the victims affected by Typhoon Ulysses and Rolly in Luzon.

In response to the calamities that recently struck Luzon, various Mindanao-based organizations and groups have launched relief drives aiming to raise funds and provide necessities to families and individuals affected by Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco) and Typhoon Rolly (Goni).

Battering the island province of Catanduanes and Albay, Super Typhoon Rolly has left Bicol Region submerged in roof-level waters after encountering landslides and flash floods during the typhoon’s landfall last November 1.

Not long after, Typhoon Ulysses lashed Bicol, Calabarzon, and the National Capital Region, leaving numerous municipalities flooded and many Filipinos displaced.

Known as the 21st tropical cyclone to hit the Philippines in 2020, Typhoon Ulysses has pounded several communities last November 12, hampering response efforts and creating further destruction to the already affected areas.

Heavy rains from Typhoon Ulysses resulted in the Pampanga River’s swelling, causing it to overflow and immerse a lot of neighboring towns. 

Being a catch basin to its nearby provinces, Tuguegarao City also experienced the worst flooding after waters released from the Magat Dam and close by regions engulfed the entire urban area.

With this, various initiatives have been set in motion to support the crisis survivors.

Here is a running list of donation drives seeking to help the affected in Luzon:

AdDU-based donation drives

Chairman of The University Community Engagement and Advocacy Council (UCEAC) Macoy Samante, shared how despite not being able to cater to in-kind donations due to the limitations of the pandemic protocols, the organization still continued to find ways to help.

“Ever since, the UCEAC has always looked into how to respond effectively during calamities. Even with various limitations, we will continue to look for ways to be able to help those in need,” Samante said.

Karlo Torreon, Social Sciences cluster representative, mentioned the challenges encountered by SAMAHAN in organizing a student-led donation drive instead of a centralized project by the AdDU administration. Luckily, the overwhelming support from the student body and university alumni made it possible to achieve.

“I also believe that this is a great sign because Ateneans are becoming increasingly involved in relief operations, thus, putting our Atenean values into practice,” Torreon stated.

The SS cluster representative also emphasized how the said initiative is a manifestation of the goals in SAMAHAN, to be responsive to the different crises, and offer genuine service.

“Being a student government means going beyond the four walls of our institutions and engage in projects that would benefit the marginalized. The donation drive was able to spark student involvement, which is important especially in mobilizing the needs of the victims of Typhoon Ulysses and Rolly,” he added.

On the other hand, Justin Paña, a student from AdDU Political Science 1A, expressed how the class’ donation drive amplifies their goal, which resonates with the integration of SS cluster’s very own flame to the grassroots level of PolSci 1A.

“This donation drive unites us, which is one of the main goals as a class, in the spirit of compassion as we exercise our capabilities to make this movement a success as a way to help our brothers and sisters in Luzon who are in need of help,”  Paña said.

End the silence of the gagged!
