DEAR PRINCIPALS, FEDERATION, ASSOCIATIONS AND FACULTY CLUB OFFICERS
Warm greetings for the coming holiday season!
As the typhoon’s death toll and the casualties near to a thousand two days after the typhoon, no relief operations have arrived in the towns of Boston, Cateel and Bagangga. Search and rescue operations have not extended into far-flung barangays in Monkayo, New Bataan and Compostela towns in Compostela Valley province. Roads have not yet been cleared of felled trees and structures and bridges are still destroyed, preventing precious relief goods from being accessed by the victims. Accessibility to damaged areas have been limited to poblacion areas in Comval and Davao Oriental provinces. The affected residents in these far flung areas have to walk several miles towards the poblacion areas to join the long lines of victims for the inadequate assistance available.
All the classrooms that were slightly damaged or that could still be used serve as evacuation centers to those affected. Our teachers and education personnel who are capable help in these centers.
It is in this light that is why we are knocking at your kind hearts. Join us as we fulfill our commitment to serve our less fortunate countrymen – let us help the poor victims of typhoon “Pablo”. Let us raise relief goods for them. Let us make them feel the warmth of the yuletide season. Together let us share our blessings with them. Cash donations are also welcome and can also be deposited to
ALLIANCE OF CONCERNED TEACHERS
SA NO. 393062600015
PHILIPPINE NATIONAL BANK, UP DILIMAN BRANCH, Q.C.
Checks can also be issued in favor of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers. These assistance to the victims will be coursed through our ACT Chapter in the area and shall be properly accounted.
Thank you very much and more power to you!!!
