Update on Karding Relief Operations
30 Sep 2022 | Milet Tendero
Since Tanging Yaman Foundation started its Karding relief operations on September 27, 2022, 2 days after the super typhoon hit the country, through the tireless volunteerism of over a hundred Loyola Schools students, the Ateneo Dream Team and TYF were able to fill up the Loyola Schools Covered Courts with over 7,600 food packs.
TYF began its partial deployment of the food packs to affected communities last September 30 to 230 affected families in Gawad Kalinga communities in Payatas, Quezon City;
followed on October 1 to 100 Dumagat families in Tanay, Rizal; to 368 families in other partner communities in Malanday, Marikina and in San Miguel, Bulacan;
to 1,500 families in the barangays of Rizal, Bonifacio, Mabini, Carlogan, and Bonbon of Polilio Island, and another 1,500 families in the barangays of Alyon, Arnot, Caniwan, Anibawan, and Cabugao of Burdeos Islands, Quezon Province with transportation c/o the Philippine Army.
The rest of the food packs are scheduled for deployment to more affected families in hard-hit communities in Dingalan, Aurora; in Cabiao, Gabaldon, Gapan and Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija, and in other more affected barangays in the coming week.
We deeply thank our donors and volunteers who continue to enable us to provide food to families and communities who were affected by the typhoon. We also express our special thanks to the following benefactors for their cooperation and participation in transporting the food packs to the recipient communities: the Philippine Army, STMTOPSI, NGO Bukluran, GO SHARE/Military, Angat Buhay, GK-Ateneo, ACED, and many kind-hearted individuals who used their personal resources and time to help. Mabuhay kayong lahat at patuloy na pagpalain ng ating mahal na Panginoon!
