For Southern Leyte Mudslide Victims
Barangay Guinsaugon, a mountain village in the municipality of Saint Bernard, Southern Leyte with 2,500 people, was almost completely destroyed on February 17, 2006, when a series of mudslides caused widespread damage and loss of life.
A local elementary school was buried during one of the landslides which occurred between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. when the school was in session with 246 students and 7 teachers. Only 1 child and 1 adult were rescued.
Relief efforts have been pouring in from local and international organizations since the tragedy started. In addition to the funds that already have been collected, Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone is conducting a fund drive to “LEAD THE WAY” for a better future to the unfortunate citizens of Barangay Guinsaugon. Donations may be sent to Timeless Trucking Service, Old Cavite Economic Zone Administration Bldg., c/o Treasurer Marni Sy (0917-534-2220) or request for someone to pickup may be arranged.
VISIT TO LEYTE POSTPONED
Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone members' will be visiting the relocation site of the remaining survivors to personally present the relief goods and monetary contributions the club will be collecting during this period. The visit was postponed indefinitely until the Matching Grant Application has been approved by Rotary International.
In addition, Rotary Club of CEPZ is arranging with an international match club, Rotary Club of West Icheon - District 3600, South Korea as a donor partner in a project named: “Mobilizing Calamity Survivors For Improved Access to Potable Water,” a Matching Grant application to Rotary International's The Rotary Foundation with participation from a cooperating organization (PhilDHRRA) to immediately address the funding of the proposed project. The project will also be publicized through the World Community Service Project Exchange to seek further assistance from other Rotary Clubs around the world.
