THE HARLOW filipino community are set to hold a concert for the victims of the recent Typhoon.
An invitation is open to you all from Reagan Decana.
“On behalf of the Filipino community here in Harlow, we write to invite you to a fundraising event, ‘Harlow Rocks: Benefit Concert for Philippine Typhoon Haiyan Efforts’ on Friday 22 November 2013.
In light of Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) that hit over 36 provinces in the Philippines leaving more than 480,000 homeless and affected more than 9.8 million Filipinos, we ask for your help and join us in our efforts to work towards helping our countrymen.
Countless people have lost everything in the super storm that hit the Philippines last Friday. Many places were flattened, whole communities cut off as roads and means of communications were destroyed.
Millions of lives have been affected, but despite the destruction there are glimmers of hope as aid and help is finally getting through.
The Filipino community in Harlow have been raising funds and collecting donations for our Filipino countrymen who are victims of the typhoon.
One of the PAH nurses, Mr. Jeffrey Ducusin, was one of the victims. His friends and former colleagues will also be paying tribute for him during the event.
The event will be held at the Social Hall, across the Princess Alexandra Hospital. The event, which starts at 6:00pm, will feature various musical performances by Filipinos from Harlow. There will be food and refreshments served at the venue.
All funds raised will be helping the relief efforts on the ground in the Philippines to deliver food, water, and shelter – but there is still a long way to go.
“We hope you are able to accept this invitation and we look forward to seeing you there”.
