Here is a report submitted by Mr Ronnie Yap of Induk Taekwondo on his club project for victims of ‘Tyhoon Haiyan’.PROJECT “GIFT Of HOPE”.
Heeding the call for assistance for victims of ‘Typhoon Haiyan’, that devastated a great part of eastern Philippines in November last year, INDUK Taekwondo embarked on project “GIFT Of Hope”. The school called for donation of clothes, towels and blankets as well as cash on behalf of the Singapore Red Cross Society for the ‘Haiyan Relief Fund’.
Over the 2-week long exercise, we saw students, parents and friends dropped off bags and sometimes small boxes of needed items. Many also donated cash. It was heartening to see the outpouring of goodwill. A group of students and their families also volunteered their time on a Sunday afternoon to help sort and pack the items donated.”
A total of 19 cartons of clothes, towels and blankets were eventually packed and shipped out to a collection centre in the city of Tacloban. While a total of S$7,000.00 collected for the Singapore Red Cross Haiyan Relief. It was a generous display of compassion and benevolence from our students, their families, friends and partners, to the people in the Philippines.
