People’s bayanihan after ‘Yolanda’ likened to Bonifacio’s heroism

KADAMAY-Panay, expressed its admiration to people who are going out of their way to help victims of super typhoon Yolanda.
The unexpected wave of generosity and volunteerism of the people in this time of crisis can be likened to Bonifacio’s heroism 150 years ago when he fought against Spanish colonizers.
In Roxas City and Kalibo, partial results from NDRMMC showed the victims reaching to 10,000 comprise mostly of informal settlers along river banks and shorelines.  Members of Kadamay in Roxas city and Kalibo numbering to more than 1,300 are all victims. Their houses were submerged  by flood or destroyed by the winds.   What helped the victims tide over are the unselfish aid brought by fellow urban poor , people’s organizations, NGOs and the church.
Kadamay is calling on their members , chapters and advocates  to hasten giving of goods and conducting relief operations  because after a week of  the disaster, another humanitarian crisis may erupt  if proper aid cannot reach the people.

Kadamay  has also  realigned its schedule of activities  in celebration of Bonifacio’s 150th  to  help victims of the disaster.  Five days ago , it has reactivated  together with other progressive organizations Task Force Binuligay which was  established in 2008 after Typhoon Frank. Donations are accepted at drop in centers in Bayan Office (fronting Jaro Elem. School) and at the Kadamay Office(Mac Arthur Drive, Bgy Quintin Salas, beside NTC office). (Source: Kadamay-Panay)
