In response to the urgent needs of families in the recent super typhoon that hit Luzon provinces, the Philippine Community Council of New South Wales Inc. (PCC NSW Inc.) calls Affiliate organisations, individuals and the whole Filipino community in Australia to extend humanitarian aid to the victims for their essential necessities such as clean water, foods, clothing and resources to rebuild their homes.

PCC NSW President, Elsa Collado appeals to everyone, “Let us join hand in hand in this endeavour for our Filipino brothers and sisters back home who are victims of this calamity. Together we can make a difference. Any form of assistance for this cause will be greatly appreciated, and rest assured will be immediately delivered to the affected families.”

Super typhoon “Juan” (international codename: Megi) lashes Northern Luzon yesterday before it headed to China.

Recorded as the strongest typhoon that ever hit Philippines in four years time, Megi or Juan caused landslides and flash floodings inflicting considerable damage, thus prompting the government to declare the region in a state of emergency.

“Juan” (Megi) with strong gusty winds and torrential rains whipped the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Apayao, Kalinga, Ifugao, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Benguet, Mt. Province, Abra, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and La Union. The cyclone torn down houses, powerlines, and destroyed the trees and crops of the agricultural region. Amongst that are severely hit by “Juan”/Megi are the provinces of Isabela and Cagayan.

Whilst residents of the affected areas were evacuated to safer grounds to prevent physical harm, (there are
3 deaths reported so far), the aftermath of the typhoon is so detrimental to their lives whose main sources of
livelihood are fishing and farming.
