The province of Catanduanes and Albay were among those in the path of Typhoons Rolly last November 1, 2020 and Ulysses last November 11, 2020. According to government departments in reports by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, these typhoons left at least 26 dead, with nearly 60,000 persons still in evacuation centers; agriculture and infrastructure damage worth around PhP 6 billion.

In this connection, Silliman University is making a call for donations, preferably in cash, so that we can help rebuild the homes and means of livelihood of the people of Catanduanes and the First District of Albay, through our alumni and friends working in these communities.

Rev. Limuel Igdanes, minister of South Bicol Conference, and several church workers are among the Silliman alumni serving the churches in these two provinces hit by these typhoons. They are working with the different church organizations to fund the most urgent needs of the victims of Rolly and Ulysses.

We call on our alumni and friends for support. We welcome any amount you can spare and contribute to the fund we are collecting for.
