LJPC Bulletin: Yolanda/Haiyan Updates as of 19.11.2013

Operasyon Yolanda - USLS Bacolod

Our fellow Lasallians in Bacolod have distributed more the 12,000 relief packs over the past days to Sagay, Cadiz and Manapla in Negros Occidental, Bantayan Island in Cebu and in Panay Island – Roxas, Iloilo to name a few. They continue to collect and pack relief goods for distribution in Northern Negros.

Guiuan, Eastern Samar

We have already dispatched more than 6,000 family relief packs for Guiuan, Eastern Samar. Once it reaches the Port of Borongan, the Diocese will be handling its distribution to the affected families. The donations (in kind) of this batch of relief goods sent to Guiuan was collected from our La Salle schools in Luzon and through DLSZ's partnership with our friends and alumni from St. James Parish, Brgy. Ayala Alabang, AAVA and the Diocese of Parañaque.

Coron, Palawan

After the Guiuan dispatch, our focus is now on Coron Palawan. We were able to speak to Fr. Eddie Penafiel (Relief Coordinator in the five Parishes in Coron and Busuanga), and he says they are badly in need of relief goods for 20,000 families. We are currently mapping out a dispatch plan from Manila to Coron Palawan. Just like what we did for the batch of relief goods sent to Guiuan, we will ask the Luzon schools for the number of relief packs they can commit to share by Thursday. Realistically speaking, I think the consolidated goods from our Luzon schools can reach 5,000 relief packs until Thursday. 

One La Salle Medical Mission

DLSHSI is now in contact with communities where a Medical Mission can be done, an isolated area somewhere in the Antique province is being considered. Details about this plan will be clearer within this week. 


Schools in Luzon remain as drop off points for donations. Most of them are doing their own re-packing already and will send the repacked to DLSU for the Coron dispatch. 

Visayas and Mindanao schools have also initiated efforts in soliciting monetary donations. The amount that we will be able to pool from our La Salle schools and various donors will be used for the rehabilitation projects.
