Proactive Response: Call for Donations

Proactive Response: Call for Donations

A series of low pressure areas is projected to continue affecting the country, including the Visayas region, until the end of this year. These are LPAs that have strong potential of becoming strong typhoons that can cause serious disruption in our day-to-day activities, damage to property and loss of lives.

Silliman University is making preparations to better respond to a disaster scenario brought about by typhoons. Standard response mechanisms under the University’s Continuing Calamity Response Program (CCRP) are in place to ensure quick deployment. One of these mechanisms is the preparation of relief goods.

We are urging members of the Silliman community and our friends to make a donation in the form of the following. These will comprise the relief packs that we will be making available for now.

  • Canned goods (preferred expiry date: December 31, 2014 and onwards)
  • Rice
  • Bottled water
  • Hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, sanitary napkin)
