ANNOUNCEMENTS: 10/14 – Pulong Bayan (Community Meeting) in New York for typhoon victims

Last September 26, it was Ondoy (international name Ketsena). Barely a month later, typhoon Pepeng (international name Parma) hit the Northern part of the Philippines and has already been reported to claim the lives of 247 people as of October 11.

The National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) and SanDiwa National Alliance of Fil-Am Youth invite the Filipino community and supporters in New York and its surrounding areas to take part in a discussion on how we can further help our kababayans back home and how we can respond and help out as a community though we are miles away.

The Philippine government’s directives on relief efforts from abroad and how they affect the goodwill of Filipinos, supporters, and people’s organizations who only wanted to help the typhoon victims will also be discussed further.

The community meeting in New York will be held at the Bayanihan Filipino Community Center (40-21 69th Street, Woodside, NY 11377) on Wednesday, October 14, 630pm. See you there!

For more information, please contact Jonna @ (646)5787390 or Anne Beryl @ (516)9011832 or email at sandiwa.national@gmail.com.

Thank you and God bless!

For the Filipino people,
Bayanihan Typhoon Disaster Relief Team
National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) and
SanDiwa National Alliance of Fil-Am Youth
