As those in the Philippines are working to restore their communities following the aftermath of the 7.2 magnitude earthquake and Super Typhoon Yolanda that hit the southern part of the Philippines in Oct/Nov 2013, relief efforts are now focused on helping to rebuild destroyed Day Care & Health Centers as well as public classrooms in the northern part of Cebu by the Quota clubs in that region.
In addition, clubs initiated a livelihood project for a small coastal community in northern Cebu where fishing is the island’s main source of revenue. Plans are currently underway to donate 20 bancas – small outrigger fishing boats – to families to help them regain their livelihood. Clubs are also assisting with the rehabilitation of condemned classrooms on the island of Bohol, that was also devastated by the earthquake. These are only a few of the projects being undertaken by Quota clubs in the Philippines.
Quota Clubs who are interested in giving to the District 41 Disaster Relief Fund should contact the Quota International office at firstname.lastname@example.org for address and banking information. District 41 Governor, Connie Garcia, along with the help of her leadership team, is heading the distribution of these donations.
