posted on 18/11/2013: 1521 views



The Philippine Consulate General (PCG) in Dubai and Northern Emirates has expressed its gratitude to the various entities for their all-out support for the survivors of super typhoon Haiyan.

These entities include all individuals, organisations, business establishments, members of the Filipino and expatriate communities as well as the UAE government for the donations and support that has been provided by them.

The outpouring of support and thoughts from UAE residents to the victims of the typhoon, as well as their monetary and non-monetary donations over the weekend, have been very touching to the Filipinos, Vice-Consul Gerry Suliguin said.

Adding, he said cash donations are preferred and can be sent "to any of the government and non-government organisations assisting the typhoon victims”.

"For cash donations to be properly acknowledged, please send a copy of bank/money transfer receipt of the donation to the PCG's email at [email protected],” he said.

He also said the Consulate General in partnership with LBC, a Philippine-based freight forwarder, will accept donations in goods from November 9 to 28. "Goods brought at the Consulate General shall be handled by LBC, which in turn, shall be turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). Used clothing is discouraged.”

He also encouraged Filipino expatriates enquiring about the whereabouts of their families and loved ones in affected areas in Central Philippines to contact the Philippine National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PNDRRMC). – Khaleej Times
