Bicol Migrants Association Hong Kong or BMAHK organized two Sundays of relief operation for the victims of typhoon Usman which swept through their region on Dec 30, killing more than a hundred people and causing massive flooding and landslides.

The relief drive led by BMAHK chairman Art Buban and President Victoria Brabante was held on Jan 6 and 13 outside Worldwide Plaza in Central.

Cargo boxes provided free by companies AFreight, Amazing Speed, GenEx and Royal Cargo were filled by donors from various groups with used clothes, instant noodles, canned goods, toiletries and other non-perishable goods.

Filipino organizations such as Global Alliance, Guardians, FLAG, Filipino Drivers Group, KOBI Group, Philippine Alliance, and Pangasinan Society HK supported the relief operation.

The relief goods will be sent to typhoon victims in Sagay, Camarines Norte, Buhi in Camarines Sur and Tiwi in Albay.

Buban express his gratitude and thanked Filipino community members who responded to his group’s call for donations and support.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga Pilipino dito sa Hong Kong dahil lagi silang nakasuporta sa tuwing magkakaroon ng project ang grupo. Sana ay pagpalain at gabayan lagi sila ng Diyos dahil sa busilak nilang puso,” said Buban.

According to National Disaster Relief Agency, Usman caused 126 deaths, with 26 other people missing, and 75 injured. More than 150,000 people were displaced.
