ABS-CBN Foundation’s relief operations

It has been more than a month since Super Typhoon Odette brought devastation to millions of Filipinos, with many families still in evacuation centers and in need of assistance as they strive to rise again.

With them in mind, ABS-CBN Foundation continues its relief operations, which has already gone to affected areas in Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao. As of January 25, a total of 141,634 families or 708,170 Filipinos have received food and basic necessities thanks to donations raised by ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN Foundation’s “Tulong-Tulong sa Pag-Ahon” campaign.

Among the beneficiaries was teacher Alnie Espiel from Brgy. Cancohoy, Del Carmen in Siargao Island, whose request for help during an interview on TeleRadyo was heeded immediately by ABS-CBN Foundation.

“You heard my call for help for the people in our hometown. Thank you for the help which was able to reach us,” she said in a report aired by “TV Patrol.”

With her home heavily damaged, Alnie and her parents have been staying with their neighbor while they try to fix their home using scrap materials they can find. The situation is the same in Brgy. Tangbo, where people are in need of construction materials to rebuild or repair their homes aside from food to get them through the day.
