Warm greetings in this season of storms!
Pinay sa Holland (Filipinas in Holland) invites you to support our benefit concert and fund-raising campaign for the storm victims in the Philippines. Entitled ‘Bangon, Pinoy! Rise above the storm’, it’s a concert to celebrate the unsinkable Filipino spirit, which has prevailed amidst the fury and havoc of typhoons that recently passed and contiue to threaten the country.
What do we want to achieve?
We are a non-profit organisation duly registered with the KvK (Kamer van Koophandel). Our goal is to raise funds for the massive relief and rehabilitation efforts for the poorest and most vulnerable victims of flooding and landslides in the Philippines caused by the tropical storm Ondoy (Ketsana) and super-typhoon Pepeng (Parma). We want to focus on direct support for children, women, elderly and the differently-abled.
Who are the beneficiaries?
We want to help in two ways. We want to aid in immediate national relief operations provided by the Philippine National Red Cross, and concurrently support community-based disaster management and rehabilitation initiatives provided by the Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC).
What can you do to help?
There are three ways to help: come to the benefit concert; donate online or offline; promote our campaign.
