Cash donations now P199,033.00
Donations in kind now P11,292.00

We are once again witness to another calamity, the scale of which has been likened to biblical times. Late last week (September 15), howling winds and heavy rains ravaged north-central Philippines. In the Cordillera, the downpour that brought massive volume of water and saturated the soil causing landslides in various areas created cataclysmic conditions that killed a lot of people, left a number of individuals missing, rendered a lot of families homeless, and destroyed billions worth of property.

It wasn’t long ago that we were witness to, if not victims of, the 1990 killer earthquake, the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption, the 2009 Ondoy and Pepeng tragedies, and the 2013 Yolanda catastrophe. The human suffering and deprivation we saw then, we see again today. And we are overwhelmed. But, we cannot just sit idly by and do nothing. So, as we did before and rightly do today, we call upon you again for your solidarity and compassion in this time of great adversity and misfortune for many of our kababayan.

Your Baguio Midland Courier would like to solicit your help for our kababayan who suffered through the terrifying onslaught of Typhoon Ompong and are in dire need of aid.


Donations in cash or in kind can be dropped off at the Baguio Midland Courier offices at No. 16 Kisad Road, Baguio City. All donations received will be logged and (if received before 5 p.m. of Friday) will be acknowledged in the pages of the Courier’s Sunday and online editions.

We encourage donors to give toiletries and bath items and brand new blankets. We would like to discourage the donation of used clothing, water, and food items as we foresee the problem of transporting them. Anyway, authorities have said that there are more than enough food items, used clothing, and water to distribute around. Groups or institutions willing to partner with the Courier in this drive are welcome to do so. You can also help by posting/sharing this appeal in your Facebook and/or Twitter networks.

You can also course your cash donations through:

IF IN PESOS: Banco de Oro (BDO) account No.: 008320043382 with account name: Hamada Printers and  Publishers Corp.

IF IN DOLLARS: Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) account No.: 009484-003-05 with account name: Hamada Printers and Publishers Corp.

The routing numbers and swift codes will be provided next week.

Your cash donations will go a long way in helping the families start all over again.

For your donations to be properly acknowledged, please fax or scan and email the bank transaction slip with your name, address and contact number to 074-443-9485 or to baguiomidlandcourier@yahoo.com.

For other concerns or inquries, contact 074-442-2444 or 0920-989-2444.

The duration of this drive is tentatively set until October 26 (Friday). The committee-in-charge will make arrangements with credible institutions for the turnover of in-kind donations. Cash donations will be turned over at the end of the relief drive. At the end of the drive, a complete accounting and reporting of turn over details will be published in the Sunday and online editions of the Baguio Midland Courier.

Much remains to be done. Know that your outpouring of sympathy and generosity will enormously help in averting a greater humanitarian crisis.

Please give and give generously! Maraming salamat po.
