Typhoon victims to get P120,000

BACOLOD City – A team from the Commission on Filipino Overseas (CFO) currently conducting information dissemination activities here will be turning over P120,000 to the Roxas City government. They money is for the typhoon victims.

CFO Senior Immigration Service Officer Kimberly Joy Dizon said the amount came from “Feed the Hungry,” a non-stock, non profit organization based in Virginia, United States run by Filipinos.

The donation is made possible thru the “Lingkod sa Kapwa Pilipino” (LINKAPIL) program that coordinates with international Filipino organizations worldwide, encouraging them to help the country.

“Through the LINKAPIL or Link for Philippine Development Program, overseas Filipinos are able to channel their assistance to projects in livelihood/micro-enterprise development, education, health and welfare, small-scale infrastructure and technology transfer,” Dizon said.

CFO maintains links with Filipino associations and other possible donors overseas, as well as local partners in the country. The team is set to conduct series of information dissemination activities in Roxas City this week. (PIA/PN)
