MANILA, Philippines–Interior Secretary Mar Roxas received Wednesday a P10-million cash donation from a Chinese-Filipino community as assistance to victims of typhoon “Pablo” in the southern part of the country.

The cash grant for the typhoon victims was donated to the Philippine Government by the Federation Filipino-Chinese Chambers Commerce Industry (FFCCCI).

Roxas said a big portion of the money will be used to buy household supplies such as cooking stoves, and other kitchen wares which they will need to cook food.

You have to remember that the homes and livelihood of people in the towns of New Bataan, Cateel, Boston, and Baganga were completely wiped out. While relief goods such as rice, noodles, and canned goods come in, they need a stove so they can cook and eat the food,” Roxas added.

Aside from the cash donation, Roxas said FFCCCI has also donated 22,000 food packages to typhoon victims.

“If needed, we will donate more for the housing projects through the good Secretary of the DILG, Mr. Mar Roxas,” said FFCCI President Tan Ching.

The DILG has also received pledges for some P70,000 worth of relief goods from other private donors including Luxury Enterprise and the Zonta Club of Makati.

Moreover, Roxas said a department order is now being finalized authorizing local government units not affected by Pablo to donate part of their calamity funds to help typhoon-ravaged provinces, municipalities, and barangays (villages).

“It will be an LGU to LGU accounting. They can send their donations to LGU, the affected provinces, towns and villages…,” Roxas said.

Meanwhile, Roxas said he has also ordered the cancellation of Christmas parties in his department, adding that any amount of money that will be generated from the cancellation will, likewise, be donated to typhoon victims.

    Sir, busisihin ninyong mabuti baka galing sa mga ILLEGAL ang mga perang yan na. I thought I read some articles from this paper that the big fishes in illegal drugs, illegal mining, smuggling, carnapping syndicates, financial/investment scams, etc. have one thing in common- a tsekwa-sounding last name. I can only hope that they are not trying to buy you off under the guise of “donation.”

      Ingat ka lang Manny sa mga katulad nina Eric Soriano..Okay, sabi niya gagawin ka niyang Milyonaryo.  Pero from Peso Billionaire to Peso Millionaire ang meaning ng mga sinasabi niya. Dahil di ka nila tatantanan hangga’t hindi ka isa nang pulubi.
