Soliciting Contribution for Victims of Typhoon Ondoy in Philippines

Sherilyn Siy, Sylff Fellow and member of SYLFF@ADMU(Ateneo de Manila University)

Dear Sylff Friends,

You may have read/seen the news about the devastation wrought by Typhoon Ondoy in Manila.

At one point, it was estimated that 80% of Metro Manila was underwater, although the damage is not limited to Metro Manila alone. Over 250+ were killed and some 400,000 people displaced. Where I work (Miriam College) some of our students and employees are still missing and many have lost everything they have in the floods. There are so many efforts by different institutions, foundations, parishes etc. to organize relief operations as well as donation drives.

We, the Sylff Fellows at Ateneo de Manila University have decided to direct Sylff friends who wish to help out financially to existing efforts, instead of creating a separate effort. Attached file below contains details for donation which will be coursed through the Jesuit-run Ateneo de Manila University.

Thank you very much for thinking of us and for your prayers.
