OPERATION TABANG • LEYTE
This past week, APFi worked around the clock to finalize travel plans to Leyte in order to deliver relief goods after Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda devastated the region.
What’s in place at this time; we will update as needed:
APFi volunteers Mila Aguilar-Lasquites, Yenyen Puzon travelled from Northern Mindanao to Cebu joining Raul Banque, Bang Longakit and Arleen Gecain to shop for the goods. Yenyen brought over a hundred loaves of bread donated by The Basic Knead Bakery of Iligan.
