US philanthropist sends relief goods to the poor in the Mindanao

Personnel of the Mindanao Examiner conduct inventory of relief goods sent by a US philanthropist for the poor in Mindanao.

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Aug. 5, 2011) – An American philanthropist has, for the second time, sent relief goods to poor Muslims in the southern Philippines, through the Mindanao Examiner.

The new delivery, which came from Virginia in the United States, consisted of medicines, shoes and sandals, and old clothes. The Mindanao Examiner said it would distribute the relief goods to poor Muslim areas.

Late last year, the philanthropist also donated medicines and books to the Mindanao Examiner after watching a plea by a Muslim woman for aid in Mindanao. The US man vowed to extend assistance to poor Muslims in the southern region.

The Mindanao Examiner is collecting relief goods from various individuals for distribution to those who need them. It also distributed books, which was donated by The Asia Foundation, to different poor areas and organizations in Mindanao as part of the company’s social commitment.

It said those who wanted to donate to the Mindanao Examiner can either send their donations to its Zamboanga office at Unit 15, 3F Fairland Building, Nuñez Extension or deposit to: Mindanao Examiner Bank of the Philippine Islands C/A 9525 8057 32 Zamboanga City (Swift Code: BOPI PH MM).

All donations are properly audited and documented. (Mindanao Examiner)
