APPEAL: Support for Earthquake Victims

APPEAL: Support for Earthquake Victims

At around 11:49AM on February 6, the province of Negros Oriental was hit by a strong earthquake. A magnitude 7 was recorded in Dumaguete, and the neighboring municipalities experienced the same earthquake at little lower magnitudes. The impact of the earthquake was, however, more devastating to the northern municipalities of Ayungon, Tayasan, Jimalalud, La Libertad and Guihulngan. Over 30 have been reported dead and hundreds displaced.

Silliman University appeals to our friends for support for our brothers and sisters in the badly hit municipalities of the province. Access to food and water supply is fast thinning out as the water system is down and stores have remained closed for fears in aftershocks.

The University is willing to facilitate the receipt and distribution of your donations in the form of the following:

  • Food
  • Water
  • Cash

Already, the University had transported to Guihulngan and other badly hit municipalities, through the Provincial Hospital, assorted medicines and medical supplies (part of the donations received from the Catholic Medical Mission Board and the Filipino Children’s Fund, both in New York). We are also sending on Saturday (February 11) assorted food packets, rice and water to the North Negros District Conference of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines. Silliman will also be deploying a fire truck to Ayungon to help alleviate water shortage.

Cash is the most practical as it allows us to purchase items that are listed as most needed and assist the affected municipalities restore economic activity. For proper acknowledgement, cash donations may be sent through the Utzurrum Business and Finance Center either personally or via the following:

This tragedy that befell us comes at a time when we are still recovering from the onslaught of Typhoon Sendong. Yet we remain faithful to the Lord for His continuing presence within us and grateful to our friends for your outpouring support.

Let us continue to pray for all families and communities where most casualties and damage occurred.
