Rodrigo Romulo's Fundraiser:

Help For Tacloban - Philippine Typhoon Relief

Dr. Ronnie Yutangco, an ophthalmologist practicing in Manila, Philippines is from Tacloban, Leyte one of the major areas devastated by the recent monster Typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan. His sister Lulu was living in Tacloban when the typohoon struck but survived incredible danger and hardship and was among the fortunate who were evacuated to safety. As a prominent former citizen of Tacloban (his late father was a popular City Councilor in the 1970's) Ronnie has been besieged by his now homeless townmates who have made their way to other cities. He has now taken families into his home and is paying for medical expenses of some hospitalized with storm-related illnesses. His house has become a repository for food and clothing donated by charitable individuals for the storm victims. Ronnie and his wife, Mita, are selflessly sharing their resources with the typhoon victims of Tacloban but are quickly becoming overwhelmed. Ronnie is committed to continuing to assist his people in whatever way he can but can certainly use our help.

Ronnie will continue to do the following:
1. Organize housing for displaced families and individuals (finding host families or paying for temporary accommodations)
2. Assist with medical expenses for those with storm-related illnesses
3. Distribute donated goods (clothing, food, etc) to those affected by the storm.

He will be visiting Tacloban as soon as possible to determine other ways he can help.
