Negrenses turn over
aid for Nepal victims
BY CARLA GOMEZ
A P20 donation from a fisherman who lost his wife, baby and everything he owned to Super Typhoon Yolanda, jump-started the pouring in of donations from beneficiaries of the Negrense Volunteers for Change for the victims of the mammoth earthquake in Nepal that left thousands dead.
The act of fisherman Rolando Pamplona of Palo, Leyte, who was the recipient of a NVC fishing boat after Yolanda hit, led to the raising of P74,865.57.
The amount that came from 242 beneficiaries of NVC's Peter Project and Project Joseph was turned over by the foundation's president Millie Kilayko to Consul Paulo Campos at the Nepalese Consulate in Manila last night.
