WYA Asia Pacific’s New Efforts for Ondoy Survivors

We observed the great urge of young people to get involved and help out in anyway they could last week.  We would like to let give you some options on how you can still contribute to the survivors of Ondoy.

Since August 2009, we have been working with Pathways to Higher Education scholars by giving them self-enhancement workshops.  Most their 300 scholars are from Marikina, Rizal and Quezon City.  Their homes were affected and their school supplies washed out.  We want help them go back to school by providing them with school supplies.  They need notebooks, school bags, ballpens, pencils and pad papers.

    1. You can leave donations at the WYAAP Office at Unit 203 Torres Building, 321 Katipunan Avenue, Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Mondays-Fridays 9am-5pm.    

    2. You can deposit your cash donations to the WYAAP Bank Account at any BDO branch: World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific Inc., Account #2070046482, Katipunan branch.  Please fax or email your deposit slip to us at 4330715 or at desiree@wya.net, with your name and contact number, so that we can verify your contribution.  We can provide official receipt upon request.
