(Press Release) — “Where there is a need, there is a Lion.” Kindness matters and that is why  members of the  Saipan Fil-American Lions Club have extended financial assistance to some of the victims of super typhoon Vamco/Ulysses in the Philippines.

Through the assistance of a member’s relative in the Philippines, the Saipan Fil-American Lions were able to provide help to three families in Naga City, south of Manila: the families of Rea Alano Manondo, Effigine Deblois Crisostomo and Leamor R. Manlangit. Each received $210.

“They were in dire need of assistance — we needed to act soon so we asked members to share any amount,” club president Eden Mercado said.

Moreover, the club, in collaboration with Tribes and Nations Outreach Mission Academy in Laguna province, was able to deliver care packages consisting of tarp, rice, canned goods, toiletries and personal hygiene items to the other typhoon-devastated areas in San Vicente in Camarines Norte, Milaor in Camarines Sur, Kawa-Kawa in Ligao, Tabaco and Legaspi City in Albay.

Club secretary Mario Mayuga said: “We are so grateful to our fellow Lions for their generosity and special thanks to Ms. Mildred Pabilando and Ms. Anna Mercado for coordinating the assistance in the Philippines through their relatives and non-profit organizations.”

If you are interested in joining the club or making a donation for the needy, call club president Eden Mercado at 788-2416 or club secretary Mario Mayuga at 285-1021. To learn more about the Lions Clubs, visit www.lionsclubs.org
