The Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation is asking for donations for its relief efforts in areas devastated by super-typhoon “Yolanda” in the Visayas, its press release said.
It has provided more than 59,000 NWTF members and their families with more than 30 tons of basic resources, such as water, food and medicines, and is preparing for its December shipment to hardest-hit areas in Palo, Ormoc, Kananga, Naval, and Tacloban in Leyte, the press release also said.
There are more than 10,000 members in these areas, with around 20,000 children.
The NWTF said they have been collecting toys for the children, and any other help given to them will make these children happy in such trying times and find the true spirit of Christmas.
