Local celebrities have been extending their help through donations and distribution of relief goods to victims of Sendong in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City. Many of them have voluntarily joined in different relief operations and offered their time to look after the needs of the helpless victims of the flash flood.
Black Eyed Peas member, Apl.de.ap, who is currently advocating quality education through ‘We Can Be Anything’ campaign, is set to visit CDO today, December 23, to personally help the victims of the tropical storm Sendong.
Apl.de.ap expressed his concerns to the victims of Sendong saying, “I want to go personally and see what I can do to help.”
Apl also said that his friends in the United States have also set to help the poor victims. Accordingly, a charity auction was launched by Apl’s friends to raise funds for the relief operations and the rehabilitation of schools in the affected areas.
Meanwhile, in an awarding ceremony held last December 19, Apl.de.ap extended his prayers to the Sendong victims.
In his acceptance speech, he said, “Now, more than ever, I realize how important it is to give back to my country, particularly those most in need…In turn, it feels good to know that I have my kababayans’ support.”
