"The generous hearts and hands of the Filipino American community are much needed rays of hope to our typhoon-battered nation," said Mitos Santisteban, president of the ABS-CBN Foundation USA, whose organization alone has generated more than $400,000 for the disaster victims.
"Our work is not done yet, far from it. The road to recovery will be long and arduous, but we can all take comfort in the fact that Filipinos, especially in times of crisis, can be relied on to band together to lend a helping hand." Santisteban said the worst typhoon-induced disasters have the claimed the lives of more than 800 people, forced 350,000 to evacuation centers, and caused more than $500 million in property damage. ABS-CBN Foundation USA has so far raised close to $.5 million, according to Santisteban from donations coming from as far as Michigan. Santisteban said she is heartened by the spontaneous response of Filipinos soon after the leading network aired its Sagip Kapamilya telethons on The Filipino Channel (TFC). She said that as of October 16, the foundation has raised $384,767 through cash, checks, credit card and Paypal donations and $69,700 in total pledges - for a total of $454,467.
