Winnipeg aid to Philippines

$65,000 and climbing

WINNIPEG – Winnipeggers are continuing to send donations to aid victims of the recent Ondoy and Pepeng typhoons in the Philippines. As of press time (October 15), the Fil-Can Disaster Relief Fund Committee has received over $65,000 in cash and scores of boxes of relief goods.

“This amount is still going to go up because we are still getting donations from other groups who are still finalizing their collection reports at this time,” said Fred De Villa, co-chair of the committee.
