Lamentably, we are once again witness to another calamity, the scale of which has been likened to biblical times. Middle of last week, heavy rains and howling winds buffeted up storm surges – their sheer intensity and volume never been seen before – that ravaged central Philippines and, in a few hours, created cataclysmic super typhoon conditions that killed thousands of people, rendered millions homeless, and destroyed billions worth of property.

It wasn’t long ago that we were witness to, if not victims of, the 1990 killer quake, the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption, and the 2009 Ondoy and Pepeng tragedies. The human suffering and deprivation we saw then, we see again today. And we are overwhelmed. But, we cannot just sit idly by and do nothing. So, as we did before and rightly do today, we call upon you again for your solidarity and compassion in this time of great adversity and misfortune for many of our countrymen.

Your Baguio Midland Courier would like to solicit your help for the millions of Filipinos who suffered through the terrifying onslaught of Super Typhoon Yolanda and are in dire need of aid.

Donations in cash or in kind can be dropped off at the Baguio Midland Courier offices at No. 16 Kisad Road, Baguio City. All donations received will be logged and (and if received before 5:00 P.M. of Friday) will be acknowledged in the pages of the Courier’s Sunday and online editions.

You can also course your cash donations through:

IF IN PESOS: Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) Account No.: 008123-0028-07 with Account name: Baguio Printing & Publishing / Baguio Midland Courier, and Routing No.: CH005873 and Swift Code: BOPIPHMM

IF IN DOLLARS: Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) Account No.: 008124-0007-43 with Account name: Baguio Midland Courier, and Routing No.: CH005873 and Swift Code: BOPIPHMM

For your donations to be properly acknowledged, please fax or scan and email the bank transaction slip with your name, address and contact number to 074-443-9485 or to <>.

Donors may also give items in kind – like ready to eat foods that have a shelf life of at least 3 months, potable water in sealed containers, formula milk for infants, toiletries and bath items. Other items in great demand include blankets, bed linen, slippers, towels, and medicines. We would like to discourage the donation of used clothing as we foresee the problem of transporting them. Anyway, the Philippine Red Cross has said that it has “enough used clothing to distribute around.” Donors unable to drop off their donations at the Courier offices may call 074-442-2444 or 074-442-6462 to arrange for pick-up. Also, groups or institutions willing to partner with the Courier in this drive are welcome to do so. You can also help by posting / sharing this appeal in your Facebook and/or Twitter networks.

The duration of this drive is tentatively set until December 15, 2013. The committee-in-charge will make arrangements with a credible relief organization for a weekly turnover of donations. At the end of the drive, a complete accounting and reporting of turn over details will be published in the Sunday and online editions of the Baguio Midland Courier.

Much remains to be done. Know that your outpouring of sympathy and generosity will enormously help in averting a greater humanitarian crisis.

Please give and give generously! Maraming salamat po.
