Bagyo Ondoy Relief Efforts
Super Bagyong Ondoy had left a traumatic and devastating effect on Metro Manila and some parts of Central Luzon. Many had lost members of their family, their homes and property, while others had lost everything. In response to the tragedy, Northwestern University, spearheaded by the Office of the President and the College of Arts and Sciences launched an information campaign for the victims of Bagyo Ondoy. The drive aimed to bring a truck-load of donations to Ateneo de Manila, our partner in the fast and easy distribution of goods. The faculty, employees and students took heed of this call and reached out to the victims of Typhoon Ondoy by donating sacks of rice, used clothes, blankets, medicines, water and canned goods. In his message NWU President Ben Nicolas stated, "What we witness here are Filipinos from all walks of life renewing the bayanihan spirit---that strong Filipino quality that helps them collectively overcome adversity." NWU’S generosity did surely help ease the burden of our distraught and destitute kababayans. This was a clear proof that generosity of humanity knows no bounds.
