Back-to-back typhoons have devastated the Philippines and just recently, a nonprofit organization decided to help out.

First Rolly and then Ullyses — two typhoons which caused massive flooding in the Philippine provinces of Cagayan Valley, Catanduanes, Rizal, Bicol and even urban centers such as Marikina.

The aftermath of the typhoons left many communities still submerged in floodwaters with families, rendered homeless, in dire need of help.

To help those in need, the Filipino Community of Guam (FCG) is organizing a fundraising campaign that kicked off on November 18 and will end on December 31.

FCG President James Robinson spoke to K57’s Tony Lamorena about their fundraising efforts.

Because of COVID-19, FCG will be accepting cash donations only. Check donations must be made payable to the Filipino Community of Guam.

The FCG is a non-profit umbrella organization of the different Filipino associations on Guam who have contributed to the island in beautification projects and in assisting charitable organizations and victims of calamities here on island and abroad.

For more information, please contact Leah Beth O. Naholowaa, FCG Board of Trustee member at hafaguam@outlook.com or 777-0479.
