EC&E staff leading appeal for donations to Typhoon Haiyan victims in Philippines
Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013 has left thousands of people dead, millions displaced and has caused severe destruction across the country. The death toll continues to rise.
Various aid agencies are working to deliver food, medical care, tents and water to the devastated communities and are calling worldwide for immediate aid to survivors.
Employees from the EC&E Group have approached the Filipino community in Toronto with an offer of assistance. The TTC is asking all employees and pensioners to please consider making a donation to help the children and families devastated by the typhoon. Your support, monetary or otherwise, is needed to help with shelter, food, drinking water, hygiene and sanitation.
Anyone who would like to assist can do so by contacting these aid agencies below:
- Philippine National Red Cross, http://www.redcross.org.ph/donate.php.
- GMA Kapuso Foundation, a socio-civic organization organized by GMA Network Inc. to facilitate social programs and outreach to the public.
