ABS-CBN, through its Integrated Public Service (IPS) and ABS-CBN Linkgod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. (ALKFI) – Sagip Kapamilya responded to the call to help the victims of typhoon “Lando” that decimated central and northern Luzon during its four-day stay.

As of October 28, ALKFI has reported that their Sagip Kapamilya program has reached out to 17,577 families and invidivduals that are numbering close to 87,885. Sagip Kapamilya volunteers have been hard at work, making their presence felt in the regions of Bulacan, Aurora, Cagayan, and the hardest hit areas in Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, and Pangasinan.

“It is with pleasure that we report to our stakeholders and donors what has happened to the donations they have been directing to us and we haven’t stopped with our relief efforts,” ABS-CBN IPS head Jerry Bennett said.

“Right now, we are planning to do livelihood interventions for the farmers whose crops have been devastated by the typhoon. It came at such a time where the harvest was almost near and this is our way of helping them get back on their feet,” Bennett added.

Bennett is grateful that the Kapamilya shows also organized a fund drive via the “Show The Love” campaign wherein celebrities went to various establishments to personally ask for donations for this cause.

SAGIP KAPAMILYA NG ABS-CBN WALANG PATID ANG PAGTULONG SA MGA NABIKTIMA NI ‘LANDO’

Walang humpay ang pagtulong ang ABS-CBN, sa pamamagitan ng Integrated Public Service (IPS) at ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. (ALKFI) – Sagip Kapamilya, sa mga nabiktima ng typhoon Lando noong nakaraang linggo.

Ayon sa kanilang report noong October 28, halos 17,577 na pamilya at 87,885 na indibidwal na ang kanilang nabibigyan ng tulong. Ang mga Sagip Kapamilya volunteers ay walang humpay sa pag-asikaso ng mga nasalanta sa Bulacan, Aurora, Cagayan, at lalo na sa mga tinamaan ng galit ni “Lando” sa Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, at Pangasinan.

“Natutuwa kaming ibahagi sa aming mga stakeholders at donors na may napupuntahan talaga ang kanilang mga binigay na tulong, maging pinansyal man ito o kaya sa mga kinakailangang supplies ng mga Kapamilya nating nasalanta ng bagyo,” sabi ni ABS-CBN IPS head Jerry Bennett.

“Sa ngayon, isa sa mga plano namin ay ang pamamahagi ng tulong sa mga magbubukid na nawasak ang mga pananim dahil sa pag-uulan at pagbaha. Panahon na ng ani nang tumama ang bagyo at isang paraan natin ito upang makatulong sa kanila na makabangon,” dagdag niya.

Natutuwa si Bennett at nagpapasalamat sa mga Kapamilya shows na nag-organisa ng fund drive sa pamamagitan ng “Show The Love” campaign kung saan ang mga celebritites ay umiikot sa iba’t-ibang lugar para personal na humingi ng donasyon para dito.
