STEEMPH in Action: #HelpMarawi A Fundraising Concert

in steemph •  3 months ago

359,000 people fill evacuation centers located in Lanao Del Sur, Lanao del Norte, and Cotabato City after armed conflict between government and terrorist forces hit the Islamic city in of Marawi in Southern Philippines on May 27.

It has been 2 and a half months since these families have had their homes, including public infrastructures such as schools damaged by the siege. The Philippine Red Cross has been providing food, household items, clean drinking water and portalets to these displaced families. They need help to fund these distribution.

SteemPH representatives, @luvabi and @jeanelleybee with witnesses @cloh76 and @surpassinggoogle, and fellow steemian @southparkqueen on Thursday night attended a benefit concert sponsored by the Philippine Red Cross with popular local bands all getting together for the same cause - to #HelpMarawi.

The night started by meeting with Red Cross Secretary General Atty. Oscar Palabyab and discussing a partnership to establish continuous donations for Philippine Red Cross and explaining @steemph's MISSION to build a stronger STEEMIT community by helping enhance communities outside of STEEMIT. We informed him this check is a symbolism of our future partnership and continuous support from @steemph.

This is the first of MANY donations that we will be able to give back to the community by blogging here on STEEMIT.

We also had the opportunity to talk to Red Cross Youth Manager, Ryan Jay Jopia, wherein we explained about blogging in STEEMIT and about engaging the Red Cross and its' youth volunteer to come to the platform and spread awareness about being a Red Cross Youth volunteer.

The Red Cross Youth is a dedicated service program of the Philippine Red Cross for young individuals aged 7-25 years old. Its mission is to harness the youth’s energy and idealism and provide opportunities to engage into humanitarian action and leadership roles. [6]

Ryan informed that we can discuss about Philippines Red Cross and the possibility of cryptocurrency donations.

He expressed interest in having @steemph and witnesses- @surpassinggoogle and @cloh76 join their upcoming National Youth Assembly in Cebu where 93 Youth Chapter Heads will be in attendance from all parts of the Philippines.


[L-R] Nathan, @jeanelleybee, @surpassinggoogle, @cloh76, @luvabi, Ryan, Roel, @southparkqueen

It was indeed a fruitful day!

Thanks to the hard work by @tjpezlo and Lulubelle Nora, Technical Officer for Program Development and Management for Red Cross' Youth Department. It was great meeting everyone and @steemph is looking forward to our future collaborations together!


Thank you for the invitation Lulubelle, and for making it happen @tjpezlo!


How can you help?

For every donation of P850(~17 SBD), a family will receive rice, noodles, assorted canned goods, and coffee for three days. For just over P1,000(~20 SBD), a family will be given comfort in the form of blankets, sleeping mats, and clean water.[Source]

You can help by upvoting and resteeming this post or through the following bank accounts owned by the Philippine Red Cross.
SBD earned in this post will be donated by @steemph to Philippine Red Cross.

Wow ! Such a great , feel good positive post !! Bravo for the great initiative all of you have done , its great to see for these people in the Philippines !! and of course the red cross !! We currently have many people forced from their homes due to the never ending wild fires burning all over British Columbia Canada ! 17 new ones each day !! In my town of Kelowna we are over run with homelessness as theres a 0 % vacancy rate which is also causing skyrocketing rental increases !! We pay 1,100.00 per month for a very old 2 bedroom apartment ! And we have to pay it or also live on the streets , so myself and my two sons now 27 and 30 are forced to share the rent 3 ways !!! So sorry I cant donate at the moment as we have a lot of problems here in my own Province ! But I will up vote 100% and resteemed for you ! Good luck !! 💙💙💙💙💙💙🆗🆒

I'd really love to suppory however I can @bearone! @steemph

Its nice to see that people are so caring, and most of all that steemit is contributing to the biggest problem our world is facing now

·

Thanks for your wonderful comment. Steemit is a good place to find all sorts of people who care and who really has golden hearts, people who do not discriminate and will love you for who you are not looking at race, color, stature, etc. Even @steemph is a good mix of unique individuals who have tons of differences but lots of things in common too, especially good hearts and helpfulness.

My pleasure. I'd love to support everyone but i dont have enough sp tho still working on it. ^_^

Amazeballs! I was waiting for this post ever since the last one was put up. This initiative looks amazing! Glad to be part of @steemph. Maybe next time I'll get to join you guys. That national Youth Assembly sounds exciting, wonder who will be sent there. Great job on this one guys! Loud and proud!

Helping others already is a great incentive. I think @jeanelleybee should post about the concert - and why Filipino Steemians should partner with the @steemph family.

Thank you for raising support for Marawi! I in Mindanao and while I don't live as near there, we are with them and welcome any refugee who needs help. We are also vigilant here in Davao as we are STRONGLY against terrorism. Hope we can all become part of the greatest change. Also to everyone curious on how we are since we are under martial law here in Mindanao. We are all good :)
