MANILA (PNA) – Chairman and CEO Senator Richard Gordon appeals to the public to continue donating to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) fund for Typhoon Odette.

The fund not only delivers immediate relief but also goes towards long-term recovery efforts to help more affected families rebuild their lives.

“You can count on the PRC to use your funds properly in providing a lifeline to hapless Filipinos affected by ‘Odette’. We were prepared days before the disaster struck and were first to respond as it made landfall. We need your help. The aftermath of typhoon Odette is a difficult challenge that will go on for the next several months, and only together we can save more lives,” Gordon said in a media release Saturday.

Urgent response to the typhoon continues in Surigao del Norte as PRC volunteers and staff members work tirelessly.

Already, the PRC distributed more than 55,000 liters of water in Barangays Oslao, Dias, Honrado, Banbanon in Municipality of San Francisco, and Barangay Rizal, Surigao City.

The team also distributed ready-to-eat meals, blankets, mosquito nets, plastic mats, tarps, and collapsible jerry cans to 405 families in the hard-hit community of Barangay Honrado.

Altogether, as of Jan.13, 2022, the PRC provided 13,621 hot meals and has distributed 253,000 liters of water in Surigao de Norte.
