Tulong Lasalyano launches Bangon Siargao to provide relief to Typhoon Odette victims


True to its commitment to helping children and communities towards a better, brighter future, Tulong Lasalyano has continued to assist areas that had been severely affected by Super Typhoon Odette since it struck in December 2021.


Tulong Lasalyano, in partnership with the Philippine Airlines and Shang Properties, Inc., sent a team to the Municipality of Del Carmen in Surigao del Norte to provide relief operations from March 27 to April 1, 2022.


The Bangon Siargao initiative was carried out by staff and volunteers from Tulong Lasalyano, De La Salle University - Manila, and La Salle University - Ozamiz, who all came at the request of Vice Mayor Alfred Matugas Coro II.


The initiative embodied Tulong Lasalyano’s holistic approach as the support came in two streams, providing Psychological First Aid Sessions and distributing Food Packs and Rehabilitation Aid.


From March 28 to 30, the Tulong Lasalyano team set up six Psychological Aid sessions at the Del Carmen National High School that were attended by a total of 273 participants, composed of Grade School and Senior High School students, teachers, and parents. The participants came from the seven puroks of Barangay Poblacion in Del Carmen.


Simultaneous with the sessions was the distribution of a total of 1,500 food packs. Tulong Lasalyano also provided relief in the form of Rehabilitation Aid, which consisted of 180 sets of construction materials and tools. The building equipment included corrugated GI sheets, plywood, nails, hammers, tapes, saws, among others.


Bangon Siargao is just one of the many initiatives under Tulong Lasalyano wherein communities and individuals are given a sense of hope, a glimpse of a better future, despite the odds and circumstances. To volunteer or donate to Tulong Lasalyano’s efforts, details can be found in the organization’s website (www.tulonglasalyanoph.com) or on Facebook and Instagram (@tulongls).
