FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 3, 2013
Senator Michael F.Q. San Nicolas announced that his office will be accepting donations to aid in the relief efforts for residents of the Republic of Belau affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

According to the Belau Bureau of Public Health, there were no reported deaths as a result of the storm. However, many homes were destroyed or badly damaged.
“Our brothers and sisters in Belau have also suffered from the recent storm that devastated the Philippines,” said Senator San Nicolas. “While mobilizing to help our Filipino brothers and sisters, we need to also do what we can to extend help to our neighbors in Belau.”
Any donations, monetary or otherwise, may be dropped to the Office of Senator San Nicolas, located in the main Legislature building in Hagatna. Senator San Nicolas will be working with the Belau Consul General’s Office to ensure that the aid gets to where it is most needed.
