Operasyon Yolanda (USLS)

Relief operations in Bacolod still on going as they focus on the areas in Northern Negros. They will be distributing relief goods to Cadiz this Saturday.


Coron, Palawan

Fr. Ed Penafiel, relief coordinator of Task force Tulong Calamian, has sent his message of thanks to the Lasallian Family for the relief goods we shipped for the affected families in Northern Palawan. He expressed his gratitude and mentioned that the relief packs sent will benefit thousands of families in their area.


Abuyog and Tanauan, Leyte

Our schools have once again consolidated the donations in kind that we received for the past days to be able to cater to the affected families in Leyte. We have partnered with the Parishes in Abuyog and Tanauan for distribution of relief goods in their respective areas. All of which will happen late this week, with volunteers from LSGH joining in the Leyte dispatch. 


One La Salle Medical Mission in Pandan, Antique (early December 2013)

Plans are shaping up for this project, thanks to our partners in DLSHSI! We have also partnered with the Diocese of Antique to ensure the organised conduct of the Medical mission. Specific dates will be released soon after travel to Antique has been finalised. For the meantime, we are asking for donations in the form of medicine specifically for cough and colds, fever, asthma, COPD, hypertension, diabetes, antibiotics, anti - tetanus, anti - fungal, nebulizers, vitamins, and heart medicine. You may drop off the donations in the DLSP Central House in La Salle Greenhills. Please look for Mr. Randy Casayuran.


Rehabilitation Projects on rebuilding schools and centers of learning

Br. Jose Mari Jimenez FSC, De La Salle Philippines President, released a letter to the Presidents of La Salle Schools encouraging our them to come up with creative ways of generating funds for the rehabilitation plans. The Lasallian Justice and Peace Commission (LJPC) will continue to assess which areas we will respond to as we commit to rebuild schools.
