ICES conducts relief efforts to communities affected by Pedring

Date Posted: Nov 16, 2011 at 02:04:35 AM


The aftermath of typhoons Pedring and Quiel, which battered Luzon in a span of one week, brought widespread damage to many places in the country with Bulacan bearing the brunt of flooding. Adamson University’s Integrated Community Extension Services (ICES) came to the aid of those affected by the twin typhoons in Calumpit and Hagonoy in Bulacan and in Sanagmana in Navotas.



ICES’ Operation Pedring began on October 4 with the team of volunteers from ICES and Adamson visiting Northville 9 in Calumpit, Bulacan. Around 100 relief packs were distributed to the residents on the first day and 446 more in the next two days and another 80 in Purok 5 on October 18. On October 7 the team went to Sanagmana and distributed 66 relief packs, followed by visits to San Agustin, Palapat, and Sta. Elena, all in Hagonoy, where a total of 255 relief packs were distributed. The Rural Missionaries of the Philippines also benefited from the operation with the turnover of several relief goods on October 11. In all, 947 relief packs were provided during their two-week operation.



Former vice president and now ABS-CBN news anchor Noli de Castro also lent a hand to the relief efforts. Mr. de Castro sponsored 400 pieces of galvanized iron roof that were distributed in Calumpit on October 19 to help the residents repair their houses. Help was also given to Meycauayan, Bulacan with 3,045 relief packs and 59 bottles of drinking water, also sponsored by Mr. de Castro, were given on November 3.



ICES was assisted at Calumpit by Jes Nilo, president of the Calumpit Homeowners Association and a student of the ICES’ School of Good Governance for Social Development. La Consolacion College also lent a helping hand to the operations and served as receiving station for donations to be sent to Calumpit.

The relief efforts were also made possible by cash donations sent to the ICES by the Adamson community and its friends. A total of PhP339,471.45 in cash donations have been made as of November.



ICES will continue to receive donations for its future relief projects. Bank donations are accepted at Philippine National Bank through Savings Account no. 3694-9600-0066, account name Adamson University (VCSR Fund), Bank Swift/Sort Code PNBmPHmm.
