Several groups and private individuals have come forward to help Filipinos whose homes were recently destroyed in the Satwa fire.
The good samaritans provided the victims of fire with used clothes, groceries, among others.
The fire happened last September 24. One of the first people to call for help is Jyn B. Sanico. Through Facebook, she was able to call the attention of various groups and individuals.
“Tumatanggap po kami ng donasyon kung meron kayo mga extra kitchen utensils, extra unan, extra kumot at pagkain, gatas ng baby at diaper na rin kung meron,” she wrote.
A few days after she posted her appeal, she has received more than 400 WhatsApp message, 275 messages on Messenger, 44 SMS messages with multiple missed calls.
“Nakakataba ng puso na ganito kadami ang gusot mag abot ng tulong. Maraming salamat po sainyo. Gusto ko lang po ipaalam na sobrang okay na po kami ngayon at umaapaw na po ang blessings samin,” Sanico wrote in another post.
Even non-Filipinos have participated in the ‘bayanihan.’
