The Rotary Club of Makati headed
by Pres. Carlo & First Ann Cat Rufino
responded immediately to the urgent
call of donating relief goods to the much affected areas by the big howler typhoon, Yolanda. Much of the assistance in the early phase of a disaster response is in the form of food, water and other supplies. So
far, we have already started sending out to different regions affected by the typhoon Yolanda. We have distributed the goods to the following:
Roxas City, 2,000 relief bags
Air Force,1,600 relief goods and 200
blankets and banigs
Philippine Army, 2,500 relief bags bound
Iloilo, 1,000 relief goods plus 2 sacks of
slippers + 1 balikbayan jeans
Cebu, 2,603 relief goods plus 2 sacks of
Leyte, 1,111 relief goods
Villamor, 17 bags of relief goods
c/o CP Mache, 200 bags of relief goods
National Awards for Community Service (NACS)
The National Awards for Community Service (NACS) was started in 1970 by then Club Director Rafael “Paing” G. Hechanova who sold the idea to President Ford Tussing.
The awards were meant to recognize the good work that individuals or association do to serve the community over and above what they normally do.
The award criteria were circulated to all clubs in the Philippines and Rotary Clubs were encouraged to nominate the awardees. The 3 original awards was essentially on a national basis and was later expanded to 6 winners – a winner and runner-up from each of the regions of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The first awardees chosen were Rosa Rosal for her work with the Red Cross, Dr. Florentino Solon, for his work in nutrition in the depressed areas of Cebu City and the Laoag Parish Center for its work in community development. Dr. Solon was eventually recognized by then First Lady Imelda Marcos and was designated as National Nutrition Commissioner.
This would not have been possible if not for the generous donations and
pledges from our dear Rotarians
and from the g e n e r o u s donations from our Sister Clubs like RC Singapore who donated 5,000 Singapore Dollars and RC KL
Diraja amounting to MR20,000
or P444,724.00 and from private
individuals. From the Rotary Club members alone, we were able to
raise a total of P372,500.00. Pres.
Carlo plans to save the remaining funds for the rehabilitation of the affected areas like Tacloban.
As of todate, RC Makati was
able to pack 11,031 relief bags and still continue to pack more. So far,
we have already started sending out to different regions affected by the typhoon Yolanda. We have distributed the goods to Roxas City, Air Force for
the victims who were in Villamor Air Base, the Philippine Army thru Rtn. Shah Tamano bound for Tacloban, Cebu, Iloilo and Leyte. Hopefully, we can send out more to other areas affected by the typhoon.
