Tabangan ta an Catanduanes (Let us help Catanduanes):A Donation Drive for the victims of Typhoon Rolly in Catanduanes

Asian Medical Students Association-Jonelta Foundation School of Medicine(AMSA-Jonelta)
President of AMSA Jonelta  Karen Martinez

AMSA Jonelta jointly with AMDA Philippines has organized a donation drive and conducted the relief activity in Catanduanes island in the Philippines for the affected people from Typhoon Rolly.

Our relief team extended our help to the communities who were not reached yet by any government or non-government organizations. Although it only provided a short-term solution - an immediate response to the calamity, the residents of Catanduanes have shown their utmost gratitude regardless of how big or small the help is. Our organization, AMSA-Jonelta, responds to a calamity through relief operations while also believing that each of us must act on climate change through policy making as this super typhoon Rolly (International name: Goni) will only be one of the many typhoons that will cause devastation particularly to the vulnerable sector.

Catanduanes, an island province in the Bicol region known as  "the land of the howling winds" was struck by typhoon Rolly last November 1, 2020, Sunday. Typhoon Rolly, considered the strongest typhoon in the world this 2020, caused a province-wide power outage and loss of telecommunications including phone signal and internet in Catanduanes. The national government and media lost communication with Catanduanes for almost 3 days. With the strength of the typhoon, it may take time for our farmers and fisherfolks to return to their livelihood since the rice fields and motorboats for fishing have been damaged. As of now, the local government estimated 15,000 families severely affected by the typhoon, 700M worth of damage in infrastructure, and 600M worth of damage in agriculture. Numbers of damaged homes and casualties may still rise as 6 municipalities were still impassable due to landslides and electricity was still not restored in the whole province as of November 6, 2020. With this, AMSA-Jonelta initiated the donation drive in partnership with AMDA Philippines, UP Catandungan Los Banos, and UPHR JFSM Student Council.
