Renato Comora, 47, one of the prisoners to return after a mass escape during Typhoon Haiyan.
The super typhoon’s winds had ripped off the roof of the Leyte Provincial Jail and flash floods forced the detainees up and out of the prison. The guards were preoccupied with their own safety and couldn’t do anything to stop the mass escape, but 2 weeks after the typhoon hit nearly half of the prisoners have returned to finish their sentence after helping their loved ones recover from the storm.
As we all know a super typhoon hit the Philippines earlier this month which has left over 5000 dead, with the death toll still rising and affecting over 13 million people. The people there have not only lost friends, neighbors and loved ones but also their houses, schools and places of work. After the typhoon a survivor was quoted as saying ‘If the world is listening, please help us’ which is exactly what I intend to do.. help.
I’m currently attempting a ‘500 for 500 challenge’ which is basically I want to see if I can get 500 people to donate 500 yen.. that’s a lot of people but hey it has to be challenging! All of the money donated will be going directly to the Red Cross in the Philippines who have been helping people affected by the typhoon through bringing in supplies, providing shelter, helping trace loved ones and search and retrieval efforts. Please help me achieve this goal so we can start sending money to where its needed!
I have some sign up sheets to help collect donations so feel free to get in touch with me to get one. Also feel free to get in touch with me for any questions you might have.
Thank you for all your help and support.
UPDATE: The current total from this is 107, 500 yen!!!! Thank you to all who have donated and please help me complete this challenge and send this money to those who really need it!
