In the unprecedented aftermath of the Typhoon Ompong affecting Northern Luzon, the Ateneo de Naga Junior High School community responded by gathering financial help to aid fellow Filipinos.

With the call from the school administration initiating the gathering of financial help, the amount of Php 75,000 was raised. The amount is only a fraction of the university’s total financial contribution consolidated by the Ateneo de Naga’s Center for Community Development (CCD).

The accumulated amount will be transmitted to the “Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan” (SLB), the social action arm of the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus. The SLB will be the one directly involved in the distribution of the aid to the typhoon victims. (M.Tatel)
