Operation Brotherhood Montessori and PCGA assist with Typhoon Paeng relief efforts
October 31, 2022 saw Operation Brotherhood Montessori Center (OBMC) relief effort responded to the call of PCG Task Force Kalinga for in-kind donations for families affected by Typhoon Paeng.
Paeng, known internationally as Typhoon Nalgae struck the Philippines last week, leaving 155 dead and dozens more injured as of last November 5, 2022, as recorded by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) in a
report by Rappler.
In light of this disaster, Operation Brotherhood Community Foundation (OBCF) and the 109th Philippine Coast Guard
Auxiliary (PCGA) Squadron of CGAD NCR-CL through Aux Commodore Jomar de la Pena requested the assistance of the PCG Weapons Communications Electronics and Information System Command (CGWCEISC) to help OBMC in packing the relief supplies.
3 Operation Brotherhood Community Foundation and staff from the Purchasing Department led by Director Beverly Ciencia participated in this effort, assisted by 7 CGWCEISC personnel.
Supplies included face masks, bath soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and vitamins. Donations from Project Kaibigan and the OBMC community also included a total of 100 hygiene kits, 30 boxes of assorted canned goods, and 280 bottles of water.
The relief goods were packed in the OBMC Greenhills campus, with assistance from members of the PCGA. These will be sent to places where our fellow Filipinos need them the most.
These efforts to aid our countrymen is just one of O.B. Montessori’s commitments to have a positive impact on the Filipino community, especially in their hour of need.
