BingoPlus, an online entertainment platform of the Leisure & Resorts World Corporation (LWRC) mobilized its work force in the Visayas to bring aid and provide shelter to the most affected sectors in Typhoon Odette-stricken Cebu and Bohol provinces.
Working with One Race For Filipino Services, Inc., a non-profit organization that specializes in rapid response to communities and individuals in need of urgent assistance, BingoPlus volunteers in Cebu embarked on a mission to Sitio Mar Beach, Barangay Marigondon, Lapu-Lapu City in early January to deliver care packages to families that had not yet received aid or relief since the storm.
Rice, canned goods, noodles, coffee, milk, water, vitamins, noodles and pasta sauce, as well as notebooks and crayons for children were delivered to over 800 families in Lapu-Lapu City. BingoPlus also supported One Race For Filipinos in distributing goods and building shelters for communities that still had no electricity or running water in Ubay, Bohol.
One Race For Filipino Services, Inc., which prioritizes assistance towards PWDs, senior citizens, pregnant women and single mothers, singled out senior citizens in the areas by providing them with building materials and helping them put up viable shelters for the coming days.
The group is raising more funds to increase the number of beneficiaries in the area.
