Last January 25, 2020, Two (2) FI Sisters -Sr. Lorna Genovate and Sr. Remedios Cabrera and our two (2) lay collaborators -Ms. Lucy Margarejo and Renato Ayade, joined the AMRSP’s response to the Taal Evacuees in the distribution of goods in the areas of evacuation.
Donations have been coming in from kind-hearted donors, mostly the congregaions and individuals who wanted to share their resources to benefit the evacuees. The Hijas de Jesus’ FASFI (Fundacion Ayuda Solidaria FI) donated a generous amount for this endeavor, as well as the Formation House of Asia Oriental Province.
After the sorting and repacking in the previous days, ( see previous article), about 40 members of different congregations worked in loading more than a thousand packs of goods and gallons of water into trucks and vans, and, as a caravan, proceeded to the evacuation centers in Imus, and General Trias both in Cavite and Tagaytay City.
First stop was Imus where they unloaded about 300 packs of good at our Lady of the Pillar Seminary of the Diocese of Imus, which takes care of the social action of the Church.
They, then, proceeded to General Trias, Cavite where they encountered and interacted with about 80 families or about 300 individuals who are staying at the Amigonians Tertiary of the Franciscans Capuchins. Here, they spread out clothes and others goods along the garden where the people could just choose for themselves whatever they could get. They also get to see, and talk with the people.
