WIMLER Foundation Hong Kong joins many individuals and organizations worldwide in raising funds and collecting goods to help the victims of typhoon Yolanda which claimed the lives of estimated 10,000 people. Leyte and Samar provinces suffered most of the brunt of the devastating typhoon claimed to be the strongest typhoon ever recorded.

The directors of WIMLER held a board meeting yesterday evening and agreed that our modest contributions will go to Bantayan Island, Cebu and Coron, Palawan. Help in these areas are minimal at the moment since most of the relief is concentrated in Leyte and rightfully so.
So far, we have groups and individuals which expressed interest to initiate fund raising drives in partnership with WIMLER HK.
This article is especially created to record all these initiatives, the donations we received, and the progress of the drive.
Then, please send copy of your deposit slip to firstname.lastname@example.org

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
